Anyone do it? Any good suggestions for a starter kit? It looks like it's about the same cost you would pay for decent beer from the store is this accurate?

Thanks

I just have one question... the only way i have to keep the temp stable is to ferment it in the house I have it in one of those soft coolers zipped up almost all the way. Could this be risking a huge mess?I'm going out of town for a week and I don't want that shit to explode all over my house lol.

Well, the fermetation (primary) is pretty violent, and can blow pretty good....

I once left for a few days and it blew just hard enough to blow all the water out of my air water -lock, and ruined a batch...i dont think you could make too much of a mess tho besides a little spilled brew

If you are past the violent stage, you SHOULD be ok....maybe just leave your heater at like 61 ?

When are you leaving??

Also you could build a bigger fermentaion lock thats more fail proof:

I'll be leaving Friday afternoon. I think having it zipped in the soft cooler should prevent any major explosions. Hopefully if anything happens it will be contained in the cooler.

you should be good by then, especially if you build/use a larger water lock like the one above

Poured my first glass of dry hopped California Common/ Steam beer.

It is a hopped up version of Anchor Steam. I kept my house at 65 degrees for 3 weeks for this beer to ferment properly. Now I can finally reap the rewards (and turn up the thermostat).

I highly recommend dry hopping if you love that flowery aroma.

Sounds great. I need to order a brew kit. Haven't brewed in a few months. Last one I did was an amber ale. I wasn't as fond of it. I think I'll order another brown ale. That one seemed to go over pretty well.

I can't remember the name of the place I first ordered from, but I've been using Midwest Supplies the last few brews.

I made this Honey Brown Ale once from The Home Brewery. It was VERY good.

Me too. Been about 3 years since I've brewed.
