Well, today I am doing my first homebrew since about 94'
Back then I did a couple of all grain batches (an Imperial Stout and an IPA) and I honestly got roped into it by a friend.
Lots has changed in the past two decades. Back then there was no real internet to speak of unless you counted Usenet, and I got into brewing because my friend did it.
Back then I really didn't know much about beer or really enjoy it all that much, but I too have changed a lot and now I'm back at it with a refined palate and much more patience.
So today I'm just doing a simple extract kit from Brewers' Best (I think it's called).
It's their Irish Stout kit. Pretty nice kit to be honest. Great instructions, etc... All the ingredients seem top notch and fresh. Hops smelled perfect and still green, yeast has a good 20 months till the exp. date, so it all seems good.
Right now it's boiling. House smells great.
So I just wanted to say hello (new here) and share the fun.
Next up will be a Biab Flower Power IPA clone.
