Hey guys. Newb from Mitchell here. I bought a mr beer kit at the mall of America this summer and the first one (american light) turned out pretty good. I have had a nut brown ale in the fermenter for 15 days now. I haven't bought a hydrometer yet for testing, but it is on the list. I just found this forum last night and figured out that there are brew shops in Sioux Falls so this is going to get much better for me and easier. Hopefully I can come over tomorrow afternoon to get some bottles and a capper kit for the nut brown. Look forward to learning and meeting people.
All I've done so far, are a few mr. Beer kits. I bought a brewers best kit with specialty grains a month ago and have been stalling since to get better equipment. If that one goes well, I'm going to try all grain right away. I'm really into stouts right now.
What type do you brew?
ive brewed all my batches from kits, but they all had specialty grains except for one. Right now im shut down building a partially automated(temp control only) all grain system. Im designing the 3 tier mashing/brewing electric over propane table/station right now.
