Ok so Ive been reading the The New Complete Joy of Homebrewing and just haven't gotten any thing to start with yet.
Well that all changed yesterday. LOL
I for no apparent reason went to Goodwill just to waist some time and what did I find on the shelf, but a bag of brew stuff. LOL hose, clamp, bottle caps, capping thing, hydrometer, stoppers, ferment/air lock things (2) and some other stuff.. Not sure what the CO2 cartriges are for (maybe some help on that)??... all for $2
figured it was maybe $20-40 worth of stuff..???
so I took that as a sign that I should just jump in and order my self this starter kit from http://www.windriverbrew.com/apprentice.html
from Windriver Brewing company. great guy to deal with that's been answering some of my questions and the price on the kit was something I could afford.
