Hello , I have been checking out this site for awhile and like what I read ; just started brewing using ingredient kit from BB , Red Ale . Followed to the letter and two stage ferment , bottled and sent to the cellar back in May at 65 degree`s ( a bit low yes ) but a nice long conditioning has gotten good reviews from all tasting it .
Got into this with all equipment from my son , he used to make wine , with all the carboys of various sizes etc .
Anyway a good retirement hobby and have Nugget Hops planted and starting to throw blossoms , we also keep bee`s so I`ll be trying those and honey in a brew shortly . Summer Ale is bottled and in the cellar as of yesterday , late yes but my timing was off and only 8 bottles of Red left ... Yikes !
Sorry to go on but this is a fun endeavor on so many levels .
