    Thanks. I'll do that.

    Fresh Wet Hops

    Wet Hops Bit*hez ! ! !"

    Brooklyn Home Brew Store are doing a custom order of Fresh Hops and will be delivering to their store tonight at 5pm for immediate pick up. The Fresh Hops are only good for 24 hours so you would need some time available tonight or all day tomorrow to brew. I am taking the day off tomorrow to brew ...

    I have my yeast starter going over the weekend so I will be bubbling and brewing all day tomorrow. I am doing two consecutive brews from 6am to 10pm.

    Still here, Fish. Just changed my name.

    I've been busy brewing. Keeping the pipeline full for football season. Brewed a mocktoberfest and a Belgian-American pale ale this past weekend.

    Considering how many times I've been banded in the past year, it's a believable story.

    Depends where you are located. Every city appears to have a home brew store where you can get a beginners starter kit.

    You want to start with an extract recipe kit to start, you don't have to deal with so much grain so the process is a few hours shorter.

    One of the most consistent brands in the prepacked recipe kits is Brewers Best. They are distributed through Whole Foods beer stores and sold online with amazon and some home brew stores.

    One of the worst brands in beginners kits, I have found is Cooper's an Aussie brand.

    Here is an example of a receipe kit. http://www.amazon.com/Brewers-Best-A...s=brewers+best

    You will still need to buy a beginners equipment kit (about $190)

    Online two of the biggest suppliers are Northern Brewer and MoreBeer, both make great kits.

    So the bottom line is buy a basic brew equipment kit and then buy and extract recipe kit. It takes about five hours so it's important to have beer at hand to help you focus ...

    I'd stay away from Brewers Best or the canned kits. You have no idea how long they've been sitting on a shelf at the local brew store. If the extract is old, the beer is going to taste like crap.

    Buy a recipe kit from one of the big online suppliers. Northern Brewer, Midwest, or Austin Homebrew. They sell a lot of malt extract, so you know the extract in the kit that you buy from them is going to be fresh.

    Too bad sourceworx isn't here anymore. He was a wealth of brewing knowledge.

    Freaking mods.
