I finally broke down yesterday and "did something". I did manage to last until about 5 pm, doing nothing.
I drove down to a homebrew supply shop and bought my first beer-making kit. I've read the directions several times, as well as done some research on the net so I feel fairly confident that I can do it. This first batch is going to be made in plastic fermenting buckets, though in the future I do plan on buying glass.
So in a couple of months, I'll have 2 cases of homemade Pilsner.
Does anyone here brew their own beer, or have you had homemade beer before? Maybe you can give me some tips that aren't in the instructions.
