Hello. I am hailing from Michigan. I have been assisting in beer brewing for a few years with a couple of friends. We've stuck mostly to extract brewing for it's simpler nature.
I just got my own brewing kit and have been gathering information for soda brewing. I plan on doing some beer brewing as well, but for now I am sticking to the semi-instant gratification of soda. It has been an interesting process in that regard so far. Soda seems to exist somewhere between beer and wine.
I found this forum during a google search and it seems to have a lot of information, as well as many dedicated people. Thanks to everyone that has created this wealth of information and continues to add to it.
