Opened presents last night, the wife got me the Brewing Starter Kit from midwest. Only problem is the Hydrometer and Thermometer were broken in the box, and they did not send the carboy and carboy cleaner thing
. I emailed them today, so hopefully I'll hear back over the next few days and they will resolve the problems. I really wanted to start brewing this week because I am off, and I already bought some ingredient kits. She also got me the wort chiller and star-san.
Think I can start brewing without the Hyrometer? I rather not wait another week or two for it. What do you think? Should I run to the local brew house and buy one?
