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?

I'm due too. I wanna try a lower alcohol/calorie beer (@4%abv, like a domestic "lite") with a nice hoppy kick and balanced malt taste. I have some research to do, but will run a small amount of biscuit, and maybe some amber grains to enhance flavor without hitting it too hard with malt sugars. I'm thinking of hopping it like a good western IPA. lots of citrus notes.

Never tried that. The smell makes it through the air lock?

When the yeast is eating it produces co2 the air lock will release that co2 a few times an hour...


The air lock is basically an upside down cap that is under water that lets air escape but won't let air in.


I used to make beer 15 or so years ago... I may get back into it.

When I brew my beer, the gas bubbles out, but it never stinks at all.

During the beginning parts of the fermentation, depending on the yeast, you can throw off a lot of sulphur. A lot of cider yeast does this. Won't effect the end product and nothing to worry about. Stinks like rotten eggs, though.

I never thought mine did either, I guess different combos of the organic stuff the yeast is eating gives off different smells .. I know I could never drink something that stinks..

Homebrewing should be a helluva lot easier that it was for me in the early 90's .... Look at all the places you can get recipes and stuff... Also there are alot nicer kits available now...

I just can't seem to get that flowery/citrusy hoppy flavor in my IPA style beers.

I'm putting around 3 oz during the boil for flavor, then another 2-3 oz dry hop for aroma.

Aroma seems to be there, but the taste is lacking.

More hops in the boil? Any recommendations? I bought some Nelson Sauvin hops I am excited to use.
