I brewed for 22 years using extract and specialty grains, and the last 1 1/2 years partial mash and all-grain. Start simple, then go as far and as fast as you feel comfortable. You can make great...

After 17 years as a fast food manager, I've had enough. I'm leaving at the end of January, to try my hand at making money without a paycheck. I'm going to be a full-time mystery shopper.

Wow, I'm a terrible person. Don't calculate efficiency, don't measure OG or FG. If the beer tastes good, I did OK.

Let's see...besides what I produce, I enjoy Bud (a very good beer, actually), Rolling Rock, and Schaefer (believe it or not, sometimes I LIKE the corn taste).

1) a boil pot

First of all, I apologize for posting something on-topic ;)

I would submit that you are ALWAYS qualified to evaluate your own beer. After all who's gonna drink it?

I'm not going to pretend to be an expert. This is just my own opinion (which may or may not be right).
