  • I started homebrewing 4 years ago. It all with a Mr. beer kit I received as a gift for Christmas. I ended up with 3 all in one year. rn2 Mr beer kits and a Brewology 201 kit. The first Mr beer kit tasted terrible. The second one smelled like sewer water, so I was afraid to taste it. The brewology kit turned out drinkable but not good. After failing with the kits i bought a brew pot, bucket, etc, and real ingredients. Ever since I started buying real quality ingredients, the beer has been great! The last two years I've brewed 60 gallons each year. I have learned to hate bottling, and soon will be enjoying draft homebrew...
