    Am I the only one?

    Am I the only one who feels really proud of his beer/cider when I see it bubbling like a sonofabitch? I see it and it just makes me smile. I don't have kids but I think this is what it would feel like, if I could drink my children and it would get me drunk.

    5 gallon vs 10 gallon brewing

    Is it that much more difficult to do? I figure if I am making 5 gallons i might as well make 10, go big or go home. What would I need to do this? Would I just need a couple more ale pails? Thanks.

    Irish Stout for Pumpkin Stout?

    I got an irish stout kit and I was planning on using it as a base to make a pumpkin beer. I was wondering if it would be too hoppy for the spices to shine through. The home brew shop is pretty close, should I get a chocolate stout kit instead? Thanks.
