    How the hell did i miss this thread? I've been brewing for about 6 years and probably have around 100 brews under my belt. Lotsa wheats, a few pale ales, couple brown ales, and a hatch chile brown that is a little rough if you don't like spice. Currently I have a pale ale in secondary which is a Mighty Arrow clone. Next up is a sour ale which is a pretty challenging brew.

    Anyone have any questions or need a hand let me know i'm more than happy to help out!

    I've done 2 batches now and the second was just bottled days ago. I like creating something, like an forgotten trade long lost. The first turned out great; according to me and my buddies. A honey wheat of sorts.

    If you have the time; a few hours brewing, hour to bottle. I would give it a go.

    I found a local guy through my network that is apparently quite the brewer. I will be meeting up with him and posting some findings in case others are in the same boat.

    A quick search returns that it may still be bitter in the first 3-5 weeks, but should be well 'blossomed' after 2 months. For a hoppy IPA, that is well worth it.

    I found this info on HomeBrewTalk - dont instantly consider it correct, theres lot of info on there to research.

    Just ordered everything yesterday to start my own journey! A few guys at work dabble a bit and helped with books and a glance of what I'd need.

    Like a few others I'll post in a month or so after the first batch (Wheat) is done and I've tried some.

    The wheat beers I did were simple (for my first time) but they got great reviews by friends and co-workers. The raspberry wheats are finally maturing to the perfect taste. It took a little longer than regular wheats because it can be very sweet initially. Just have to have patience.

    If you can measure, clean containers and boil water, you can make a basic beer. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it. The biggest part of brewing in my opinion is patience. If you can't let something sit for weeks, sometimes months at a time, then homebrewing is not for you.

    A buddy of mine is organizing a Home Brewing Demonstration day this Sunday. If anyone is in southern Ontario it's a great way to learn how easy it is to brew your own high quality suds!

    thank you, I will check them out. Overall, it seems like it is both an art and a science..... what type of learning curve is there? From a cursory glance, it seems it would be pretty extensive
