Hello all from CT. I just started learning about brewing. I found my local Homebrew shop and made friends with the owner. Turns out he lives walking distance from me. I purchased your basic plastic bucket brew kit and a TruBrew Red Ale extract beer kit for my first beer which is currently on day 2 in the Secondary following the modified directions given to me by the Owner of the Homebrew shop. So far so good. I also on impulse picked up a Mead making kit and some local honey. Just started that today.
