  • Started like many other, Mr. Beer, then this summer my dad brought home free brewing equipment in the form of a super colonna capper and a awesome bucket, all of which would've ended up in the dumpster at his work.

    From then on I've been brewing, collecting glass bottles, and learning from this forum. Hopefully in a couple of years I'll be able to have more equipement, such as kegs and maybe even a large 10-20 gallon fermenter.

    temp to th...
