  • Hmm. Not much to tell as of yet. On my third batch, all have been kits so far. My dad and his friends got into brewing about a year ago, got my husband a kit for his birthday, and off we went. (I've taken over the hobby for now, since I'm home more often than he is) Right now we drink it faster than we can make it...hoping that eventually we'll have a stockpile of different varieties on hand. Would also like to do wine(I don't drink it much, but would maybe like my own!) and cider too.

    I've learned a lot just browsing your forums, and can't wait to learn(and experiment!) more!

    Ahhh, bummer. I'm still bottling. Well, onto Christmas then. (I better get moving!)

    Is there any beer I could brew and be ready by Thanksgiving? Well, the Sunday after? Yes, talk
    about procrastinating..I'm terrible at it. At this point I don't care if it's a porter, wheat,
    whatever. ...

    I thought it was fantastic. A friend of ours bought it last year at Christmas and opened it a
    few weekends ago on our annual camping trip. One of the better beers I've had all year! I'm

    All I know is this: I made an extract hefe kit a few weeks ago and bottled today. The taste
    resembled honey very much, and I added none to my batch. (I fermented high--couldn't get it
    much colder than...

    Have you seen Midwest's kit for Apple Ale? That's what I'm brewing next; maybe you could look
    there for inspiration? (It is extract, but I believe they have an AG version as well)

    I was going to suggest an amber, a brown ale, or even a APA. I think really anything besides a
    spiced or fruit beer would be just fine, though!

    Sounds like a good drink to have whilst walking around with the kiddos trick-or-treating! Yum!

    Grill a chicken breast with cumin and cayenne, as the chicken finishes up add a slice of
    monterey jack cheese and a few slices of avocado. Come to think of it, a tomato would be good
    too. (It'd all be...
