  • I have been homebrewing since the beginning of 2011 from reading stories on the net & friends who had brewed in the past. Have only done extract & partial-mash brews. I have brewed 7 5 gallon batches made from kits ordered from Austin's Homebrew Supply, all with great results. Using a turkey fryer for my boils, plastic fermentor, rack to secondary glass carboy, & then bottle.rnrnTowards the end of my first year of brewing, I started doing all-grain brewing & also am now kegging along with bottling.
