Anyone into home brewing on here?

I'm getting back into brewing beers from grain again. Can't wait, they taste as good if not better than commercially brewed beer and it's costs sod all.

Just off to buy some copper pipe to make a wort cooler..
Been seriously thinking about brewing my own , but that explosion that killed them polish lad's has unsettled me some what:RpS_crying:
I bought that tesco kit a few weeeks back :)

not tried the beer yet... mine will be ready in a weeks time :)
I did lots of kit beers years ago. Dunno if they've changed but the more you spent then, the better it tasted. I remember the dehydrated powder ones came out good.

You can brew quality grain beer for less than 40p a pint

No it's not difficult to make at all, as long as you're aware of keeping things clean and sterile, which shouldn't be too hard for us lot.

You need to keep stuff fermenting at an ambient temp. which is harder to maintain during winter, so some people use heat mats or thermostats for aquariums.
I was considering giving it a go then realised that I already have a drink problem with booze on tap it wont help the situation.
waiting on 10 bottles of marrow rum to mature won't be long, last year it was parsnip whiskey great gear:)
lol we just doing a youngs lager at the moment the cider was shite

I knocked a glass of it over on my desk and it etched the paint off....lol so I have repainted it :)
