4. this is really very incredibly nifty. this is who hubby is. neat to have pres that can

enjoy beer and not have the negative attached, just appreciation. my husband will love this video. i am figuring when he retires, he will get into all this with his time, as a hobby.

thanks.

9. can you ask about how much the equipment would cost to get started?

they refer to "fermentors" and I'd like to try my hand at this.

11. i was listening to a npr program on this and was told that it can be done very cheaply,

less than a hundred, for small spaces. very interesting. i will ask hubby later if he found a site to recommend.

15. Lots to read here:

BTW, a "fermenter" is just a big bottle to hold stuff you're fermenting.

18. Depending on where you're located...

there's Northern Brewer (northernbrewer.com), Midwest Supplies (midwestsupplies.com), and Brock's Homebrew (brockshomebrew.com).

I used to order all my stuff from Midwest (came out to be a little cheaper than Northern), but Brock's opened up, and they're in town, so I go there instead. Initially, I think I spent about $60 for all the equipment (plastic fermenter, bottling bucket, capper, thermometer, grain bag, and pot). I've since bought more stuff, but still have less than $150 invested.
I saved money on bottles, as I don't drink any twist-off beers, so I rinsed and dried my empties for a couple weeks until I had enough. Soaked them to remove the labels. Later, a buddy gave me a couple cases of 22oz bottles.

Most of the online stores sell an equipment kit.

5. Thanks for posting this!

That is a great video to watch. I'm sending this to a friend who has just started making beer using his own hops that he grows.
I'd LOVE to taste one of those brews!

14. Canadian-made yeast??!?!?111 (shakes fist)

OK, I admit. Notty's a brilliant yeast, use it in the ciders all the time.

17. I just picked up...

I just picked up all the ingredients for the Honey Ale at my local homebrew shop,
Brock's Homebrew Supply in Melbourne, FL (www.brockshomebrew.com). Grand total
was about $45. I bought local honey for it. Got my fermenter and the rest of the
gear sanitizing right now. This should be tasty!

20. Good luck!

Homebrewing is an incredibly rewarding hobby. Nothing better than sipping a beer you brewed after a long day...
Sense of acomplishment. The shop by my house also has cheese making supplies (blessed are the cheesemakers).
I've been looking at making cheese for the last couple months. Excited to see they've got a supply at my local shop!

I've been making my own beer for a few years. I also make my own bread. I've been trying to get some chickens,
but my fiance objects to that. Aside from that, I made the guitar I use in my band (http://madmartigan321.com) <::cough:: shameless plug ::cough::>, made alot of the effects pedals I use, amps, speaker cabinets, hair cuts, etc... I'm really big on the DIY thing. Sometimes it costs a bit more, but there's so much payoff in doing things like this yourself.

Also, beer gets you drunk. So there's that...
