I'm asking Santa for a brew kit this year.

Anyone here home brew?

Would love to hear some pointers.

Starting out with an IPA. I'll probably screw it up.

But interested in hearing thoughts.

I have a brand new brew kit at my shop, someone put it outside next to the road along with a big swimmingpool framework so someone could pick them up and use them. I even talked to the guy and he gave me the circulation pump and filter for the pool.

That was ten years ago, I have since cut the fiberglass framework up to cover my woodpiles. I have not used the brew kit yet, I need to find a reasonable source for bottle caps, I do have lots of bottles to use and have a capper.

I even know someone who has lots of Hops taking over his yard, the previous owner planted them. I should bring some here and plant them, let them take over the woods.

But, I no longer drink beer very often, so why go through all the work to make it when I would just be giving it to others? I really do want to make root beer with it, but that turns out better in oak.

It's really important to have good steady temp control stove top stuff can work but is a real pain.

Ps and it's winter for god's sake. It's time for bourbon porters.

We used to make what we called raisin jack. Very simple, 5 gal jug, 1 can of malt, 5 lb sugar, 1 box of raisins, 2 pkg yeast.

Let ferment for a week, strain into gallon jugs and go skiing. Vile smelling and tasted worse but we were to young to buy beer at the store.

Usually combined with a bottle of cough syrup for a nice buzz.

But beer making is fun!

I used to decades ago but the kits are now crazy priced in the uk , it is cheaper to buy in the supermarket , but 1 trick i remember is use twice the amount of sugar and double the time it says and you will end up with rocket fuel and find a busy bar for all the empty bottles that are kept at the back

one of my mates does home brewed stuff.

Seems to be good for only two things, listening to him talk about it nonstop and getting me drunk.

Yea, this 55 year old USA Nationalist is still working on graduating SJW college?


Guess the UK hands out those diplomas like candy?

I'm pretty sure some of those micro brews are doing just that.

I don't want to be that guy...but Santa is not real.

Unless he's that crusty white-bearded dude dressed in red and white who stank of booze and wanted me to sit on his lap after he said it was only a broomstick in his pocket.
