Hey guys my name is Jon and I am in university studying health sciences. I am looking to get into home brewing, I still need to do a lot more reading before i shell out the cash, but was wondering what you guys recomend for a beginners kit? thanks in advance!

www.brewmasterswarehouse.com
www.austinhomebrew.com
www.midwestsupplies.com
www.northernbrewer.com

any of those sites have "kits" for beginers and any of them will work well for you. pick the one that is cheapest after shipping and get started.

read up A LOT before you get started because any question you have has probably been answered and if you "search" for it you will likely find you answer. there is more info then you can imagine on here.

welcome and happy brewing.

believe it or not I just brewed my first batch today. and after several weeks of reading the forum my fist brew went off with out a hitch I have ZERO questions after the brew and know exactly what I did and why I did it.

I am not going to make a thread about "does this look like an infection" or the likes of.

if anything i'll post a thread showing off my fermentation, but its been posted hundreds of times and it won't be anything new that hasn't been seen before.

The more you know, the more you will know you don't know.

Oh, and don't forget to pick up some oxiclean.... I was skeptical of the way everyone was praising it on here until i used it to soak some bottles today... I'm convinced now that the stuff is magical!

don't spend your money on oxyclean. buy the cheap chit from walmart or the dollarstore.


I picked up a 6# tub for $3.50 of "sun oxygen cleaner" chlorine free
