    A good friend of mine bought me a Home Brew kit for my birthday last week, and I thought I'd share the process with you folks..

    I really shouldn't be posting this at work and killing so much time, but what do I care??


    The Kit in all of its GLORY

    Brew the WORT!!, smells like it looks.

    Drain the WORT!!, sediment stays behind.

    Mix with 3 gallons of purified water, and wait for the peculate.

    I was gonna' do this once. Had the kit and everything.



    Then I got too lazy. I used the plastic tubing for some odd project along with some of the other doo-dads and eventually threw out the remains.


    Then I went to the store and bought a beer.



    Good luck!

    The only problem is....It takes 4-6 weeks to be a completely drinkable, flavorful beer. I'm going to taste it at the one week mark, just out of curiosity.

    It's not too complicated, and relatively inexpensive. The kit is about 140, plus 35 for the ingredients. You only have to buy the kit once, and per box of ingredients you can make 24 deuce-deuces!

    What type of beer did you make, and how did it turn out?

    I'm no beer guru, but I can imagine beer could be brewed a million ways depending on ingredients, type of beer (ale/lager), and so forth.

    Did you get the Mr.Beer kit?

    i made a traditonal ale, i made a light ale, an old family recipe..and now i'm about to make a porter.

    5 gallons at a time. about 52 beers....


    the first two turned out awesome. the old family recipe is strong (5 lbs of sugar) and very hard to consume. one bottle gets me near drunk.

    it's completely easy and so fucking fun. i hate storebought beer, except for delerium nocturnum.
