    I've noticed a few curious threads recently that suggested some of you might be homebrewers.

    I am. Been brewing for about a year and I volunteer time at a local brewery as well.

    I've made about 15 batches and I wish I could brew every day.

    I just made a Golden Ale that is named "Gravedigger". It will be on tap all season. I sampled some during the scrimmage and it was awesome.

    Hey,

    I used to make beer at home. Several were my own recipes. I never made my own malt, I just used to buy the extract from local 'brew it yourself' and wine/beer making stores. I found the beer was always very drinkable. :)

    Regards,

    Robert C. Hedley

    My husband is very into his homebrew. He tries his own recipes and also buys the mixes from the local brew store. I hate the smell and mess but he tends to only make it seasonally. You see he is a Vikings fan and he makes lots of home brew starting about the fifth week of the regular season when the Vikings start to tank.

    Thanksgiving weekend is when I make a batch for the football playoffs.

    A batch can be done for New Year's Eve (5 weeks) but I like most around 7-8 weeks.

    With set up and clean up it's a day's work.

    You have to like beer and experimenting with many flavors seeking to make the ultimate beer; by yourself.

    My Mom made her own wine. I'm telling you, it was some GOOD stuff! My favorite was her "strawberry ruhbarb" blend. At one time, we had over 70 GALLONS of wine in the basement!
