This subject obviously needs its own thread. ADV Zymurgists, chime in.

Oooooooo, sad state of affairs. Dust is an inch thick on the carboys. Time to get cleaning and collect notes from batches gone by.

Thumb Any Metro STL brewers for a local taste test?

Been wanting to start my own home brew hobby, but would like to taste other inmates attempt at it. We could have a weekly or monthly get together. Those that brew bring that, those that don't, bring a high quality micro brew.

I toast your health, sir. With a slightly immature IPA.
And after I finish this off, I'll toast the rest of the misfits in ADV land with a smoky porter, possibly a stout, or even a mead. Sometimes indecision can be a good thing.

Merry Christmas All.

Around $100. I'd suggest finding a local homebrew supply store. They usually have a kit for starting brewers like this:

Ingredients per batch run from $25-$40 depending on the complexity of the recipe.

Starter kits are about $100. Ingredient kits $20-$50 for 5gal. And you will need to supply a large pot and burner. For starters you can use a canning pot and stove top, a step up is a turkey fryer. Save your bottles.

I've been brewing for about 3 years. My beers are all-grain. I also do wine kits, meads and this fall some cider. A few batches have been horrible (but I know why), a few OK, but most have been very very good.

I hear you on the indecision. I think I have over a dozen different beers, wines, meads and ciders in the beer fridge. So what should I open now??

I'm in.

Don't have a lot on the go right now, but it's time to brew again.

Got some Barley Wine left.







A little lively this one:









Who mentioned KLR? I might be buying one next week. Off topic, but I don't care.
