I've just started homebrewing. Made up my first batch last night, and it's merrily fermenting away in my hall closet.

I can't wait for it to be ready, I hope it turns out good.

Does anyone else here brew? If anyone's interested, I'll let you know how it turns out.

My husband wanted to try it at one point and I told him he could but to try it out in the work shed not in the house until he really learned how to do it. I just didn't want to have something break or leak and the house smell like a brewery. If I was closer to ya I'd try it out.

Crab, I didn't get one of those rinky-dink $10 KMart kits that make a liter of swill. I got all the real-deal equipment, which makes 5 gallons (two and a half cases) per batch.

It's going to take almost two months to be ready, so I hope it doesn't turn out like crap.

I tried home made root beer once. It took weeks to clean up the floor and air the house from the exploded bottles. Kinda made me leeeeery of trying any other brewing.

I seem to remember that Eyrie is into home-brewing.

Zombie....I have tried some home brew stuff that was excellent. On the other hand....there's always something that you can dissinfect your sink with and leave it smelling like rising bread.

All in all, I guess it has to be a good hobby, noting the stuff I tried cost more per gallon than you would pay for at the store. Someone's footing the bill for love, not price.

Made Swish once with a friend. You get a barrel that they kept the alcohol in and in our case it was rye. Then you put water in it and some other stuff and then you turn it regularly on schedule. We then took this thing to work and used our labs filtration equipment and got this thing crystal clear. The alcohol content was off the board and it was wicked and I mean wicked. I don't drink rye and only tried a bit but everybody who drank it wow ... a little did them and did them wrong.

A friend and I made some stout at one point. It tasted like stout would taste if it was an alcopop.

I recommend documenting everything so you can figure out what you did right.

Or wrong.

Yep, I've been writing everything down.

Got home at 7:30 last night, checked the fermenter, and WOOT! Bubbles coming from the airlock every 4 seconds!

I'll probably start secondary this weekend, then bottle in a couple weeks. Then I'll start another batch, while I wait for the bottles to condition.
