  • I got into homebrewing because I like beer and thought it would be cool to be able to make your own. So what started out as a hobby has quickly turned into an obsession. The beer recipe possibilities are endless.

    My past setup was just a 5 gallon SS pot, 7.5 gallon plastic fermentor, and a couple of airlocks. I now have about 5 plastic fermentors, 2 carboys, 2 5 gallon SS pots, 7 gallon cooler for a mash tun, a Barley Crusher, large containers to store grain, and the list goes on.

    Recently, I have gotten sick of bottling and am in the process of putting together a keg system. I just bought 2 Corney Kegs last week and will be acquiring a C02 tank and Kegerator system real soon. Next up is a larger 10 gallon SS pot and a propane burner so I can boil the wort in one pot instead of two.

    Yes, you could malt your own barley. I have never done it, but it seems easy if you have to do
    it. Here is an article from BYO:

    When I first went AG, I split my boil. 3.5 gallons in one pot, 3.5 in the other, dividing the
    hops between.This is what I do so I can still use the kitchen stove and do full AG brewing. I
    have a 7 gal...
