Here’s a great article I found in Brew Your Own magazine that is an introduction to homebrewing.
I like to tell people that brewing beer is as easy as making soup. I call it an addictive hobby. If you’re a beer lover, there is nothing like the feeling of drinking and sharing your own tasty brews! It is also fun to fill the entire house with the aroma of hops and malt and listen to the kids complain that it stinks! lol
