The Barbershop

It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group.  My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More

"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."

"It really depends on where you're getting your kit from. Some starter kits are more on the same level as deluxe kits from other retailers. Can you see yourself going all-grain in the near future? If so, pick out items that can handle a larger…"

"Oh yeah.... then there's the one gallon All grain kits from Midwest brewing supply. They are an absolutely amazing way to get into brewing. They make about a 6 pack of beer, and start you off in all grain, which is where you'll end up…"

"Get the best kit you can afford. The hobby quickly becomes a sickness, and you'll be constantly buying new things for it. As far as ingredient kits go, BSE kiss are great for the beginner. But mostly any kit that isn't "Mr.…"

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
