You can also do small batches for small $. I built a mash tun for around $40, I use a standard 20qt stock pot and do full boils on the stovetop. Sure, I only wind up with 2.5 gals in the end, but i feel it's a good way to get accustomed to the process without diving all the way in and spending all that $ right away. My 2 cents.
Who is this Rorschach guy? And why did he paint so many pictures of my parents fighting?
