  • I have only a few people to thank that got me into the wonderful journey of homebrewing...Chris Weiss, my wife, Mr. Beer, and Craig Farraway....rn Chris Weiss, who I served a tour in Afghanistan with. He mentioned that he wanted to try to brew his own beer when we got home. The idea sounded wonderful to me so when I got home and settled down I had mentioned to my wife that I wanted to try and brew beer, and in turn, she got me a Mr Beer kit for Christmas. Mr. Beer, although my relationship with a Mr Beer kit wasn't that long, I definitely owe thanks to it as it was a wonderful starting platform for a beginner. It taught me the very basics, and broke them down into their simplest methods. and Craig Farraway for the YouTube inspiration. Watching his instructional videos about how to make beer on an advanced level definitely reassured me that I would to be able to do it too, so you could say that he was somewhat of a mentor to me. Without them I wouldn't be doing what I am today.
