Home brewing...Has anyone here attempted to make your own beer? My wife got me a small kit that allows me to make beer 2.5 gallon at a time. Being I really don't drink much it seemed like the way to go (smaller fermenter) I've since started doing a ton of research into beer making. The kit I got sells liquid malt extracts that work great but I've never been one that can just follow a recipe so I have looked to branch out. There's tons of places that sell malted grains and about anything else you can possibly want. I'm also looking at maybe growing my own hops after I learn a little more about the different types and how they work in beer. My first brew come out of the fermenter tonight and is in bottles to carbonate then condition. It will be a while before I know if it's any good or not. The stuff that come out of the fermenter appears to be pretty good though. So...Who else has tried it?
