hah hah a brew-a-palooza. i am in sc.

would be a nice start if this forum had a gallery where ppl could show their brew digs.

i planted some hops as well - i heard they grow rather prolific.

as far as pleased being a good review - anything shy of projectile vomiting i take as a plus - but i can see me tweaking a recipe for a long time to make it uniquely mine. that's what i forsee doing. finding a recipe i REALLY like and tweak it to be my own.

I started off with a Mr.Beer kit. The "finished beer started off o.k. , got worse, then became great a few months later. At one point, my horse wouldn't even drink it ! He's a lush. I gave up on the Mr.Beer kit, though I still use the bottles and the little fermenter along with a carboy. I've been having to drink 40 oz bottles of commercial beer just so I can reuse the bottles. It's hard, but I will suffer for the art.
I've got 20 acres here in eastern N.C. just off from the Neuse river and the Pamlico sound. It's not waterfront, but we have a pond next door and it's a short ride down to the river. I'd be honored for my place to be a stop on the 1st annual Beer-a palooza. It's like uniting people through fermentation. Can I get a KUMBAYA ?

I'm new to the hobby of homebrewing, and far from an expert. But I started with Brewer's Best. My 1st batch is done and I'm drinking it now. It's really good. My 2nd is in the bottle. I have 3 more Brewer's best kits coming, then I'll start on recipes on this site and others.

All can can talk about is my 1st batch of's really good. The brewer's Best ingredient kits are good, and the instructions are easy. If you are new to the game, I'd say these guys are the bomb for n00bs like me.
