I’ve never brewed a thing in my life, only helped a Buddy brew several batches, extract brewed.
All good stuff!
When I decided I wanted to get into brewing, I looked at the pros and cons of of all the different brewing and packaging / serving / dispensing style.
I set my mind that I wanted to do all grain right off the bat, mainly for all the advantages mentioned above, plus I like gathering or making the equipment that I will need.
That said, my pockets ain’t bottomless :shock:
So, I began shopping Craigslist mainly, for people who might be getting out of the art, or people cleaning out warehouses, storage rentals, etc…
I made myself aware of what I think are the most important things, being cleanliness, sanitation, temp control, and attention to detail.
It all looks like fun, with my only downfall being mathematically challenged, but hey, work that shit out well in advance, and go from there!
I’ll either brew a lot of beer that I love, or a lot of beer that tastes like ass, but I have been known to learn, a LOT, from my mistakes!
Get as much “leash” as ya’ can, especially if she likes beer( my Wife likes Dos Equis,Hefeweizen’s, Trappist brews), and shop wisely for some cooking, mashing, and kegging equipment.
It’s out there, as evidenced by my post that starts with"Here’s what happens…"
And support our host here for the stuff ya’ don’t find otherwise.
