I decided I would like to learn to brew my own beer and have been reading up on what to do. I went to the local shop and picked up a 5 gallon glass carboy equipment kit. It comes with a secondary, cleaning supplies and the bottling equipment. I also found a nice outdoor propane burner and a 9 gallon stainless steel pot. Once I get a wort chiller I should be all set.

They had an extract kit for a barrel aged stout, so I think I'll give it a whirl!

With any luck I can get the first batch going and have it ready for St. Patrick's Day.

I've also seen a number of people grow their own hops, so I ordered a bunch of rhizomes to try and grow along my fence. I'm pretty excited about this new hobby and the chance to smoke a few cigars while boiling some water!
