Well I just bought me a 33 qt. brewpot,and I thought AG brewing looks to be more trouble than what it's worth, so I also aquired a 8 gal. fermenter to put to use so I thought I'd make a 7.5 Gal batch. Partial to Oatmeal Stout so , had to brew one up for me! Had a friend that had never seen brewing before so, had to share some old stories and have samples of what I was brewing up! Extract Ale tastes so good I wonder why people ever went to AG. Kind of reminds of a guy flyfishing for REAL,or some DipS%*T tossing a gob of worms, both catch fish and have great fun!
