Greetings Fellow Homebrewers,
I have been a bit bashful getting into homebrewing. Jumping right in isn't exactly cheap, and I want to make sure I get the equipment right the first time. Therefore I come to you guys to help me pick out my first equipment purchase.
First off a bit about me:
I'm a Student who got into homebrewing by a co worker. After brewing a few batches with him, I found it really wasn't that hard to brew, so why shouldn't I get my own equipment. After reading plenty of forums, watching youtube videos, and making wishlist after wishlist from northern brewer, I think I have a solid start to homebrewing. I'm looking to do a few extract kits at first, and then expand to some all grain brewing after getting the hang of it. I have a kegerator already because I found that cleaning bottles was my least favorite part!
Why I want to Brew:
1. Better tasting beer
2. Take pride in what I can make
3. Spend time and share with friends
4. Satisfying coming home and getting some good beer from your tap that you made yourself
5. New hobby!
With that, I have my equipment wishlist to share. Your input and comments are encouraged
