"That kit is an excellent choice. If it's cheaper there, go with it. For your first batch, just get a style you like and try it out. Don't worry to much about the fine details."

Home brewing starter kits

Hello all.  I am planning on doing home beer brewing this fall and was hoping that I could get some advice if anyone has experience.  While I have read on the matter, I am struggling to pick out a starter kit.  Does anyone have any suggestions for starter kits?  Is it better to go with a basic kit or a deluxe kit when starting?  Finally, which company has the best ingredients?-StevanSee More

Hello all.  So I am part of a nonprofit called 28.Jun, which helps displaced families in Eastern Europe and the Balkans, as most of our members have our roots there.  I know the western media did not do a very good job of showing the flood damage that swept Croatia, Serbia, and Bosnia; however those of us who have family and friends in the Balkans watched in horror as our homelands were destroyed.Our organization has raised over $1.5 million in aid and are now trying to ship over the supplies…See More

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

As a child my parents taught me that Thanksgiving was about more than football and eating too much. My sister and I were encouraged to reflect on the things that were truly important.Just a few of the things I am thankful for:My health. While I often joke that "I've I'd known I was going to live so long I'd have taken better care of myself" I am very thankful that I've made it to 52 and can still do anything I choose without worrying about my body. My wife's health. Over the past month I've…See More
