My brew experience
I went to Barnes & Noble, looking for a BBQ magazine, when I seen a magazine called Draft (draftmag.com). I like beer so I picked it up. In it they had an article on homebrewing. They gave a list of books and web sites. This intrigued me, so I dug thru a couple of web sites and bought a book (Homebrewing for Dummies), and also bought brew your own magazine (byo.com). I read it cover to cover, and decided to start home brewing.
I have researched all I can, from the net and books to TV. Everything I have read or seen told me to find a local homebrew shop. So I found a couple of them, I went to there shops to see for my self how they are. I found one that offers a beginner class, and signed up for it (bought more brew your own magazine). I will be attending the class on Saturday 4-28-07, which is also the NFL draft day (I put this in because I love football). I will also be getting the gear I need to brew my first batch. I will be keeping this journal and taking pictures of my experience. I hope this is a life long journey I can share with people.
