Thankfully, my husband is an adventurous guy and took on the challenge in Dec 2013 to start brewing beer at home. It’s an adventure that I really enjoy. His new beer crafting hobby has forever changed my taste buds for the dark suds.
For Christmas 2013, he got a @$100 home brewing kit from MidWestSupplies.com and a 20-min boil brew. The kit was a Nut Brown Ale that didn’t last too long after it carbonated in its bottles. To the kit, we’ve bought bottles from a local home-brew shop as well as a few beer kits.
From there he made a few different kits that included a Pumpkin Brew, Holiday Brew, White House Ale, and a Spice Beer. I’ve enjoyed them all…. except the brew that wasn’t finished brewing before you bottled it. It was a ‘bit’ too foamy!
