    Excellent. What have you got planned for your first brew? You starting with a kit or going the full-monty with an all-grainer?

    I think a kit until I get the process right and some experience and after a couple of years I want to be able to do it completely organic because I will be living in a forest in Lithuania and want to be completely organic for everything

    Wise choice. When assembling your equipment, don't skimp on decent sanitiser and a reliable hydrometer and trial jar. I believe the stuff sold in Wilco is ok.
    No need to go to Lithuania to be organic, it can be done in Manchester, too, I understand.

    Now you're talking! You mis-spelt "orgasmic" in your earlier post by the way.

    Welcome to the forum!
    Nice to see another Mancunion 0n the forum, and you can indeed get all the basic kit you need from Wilco. If you are close to the Chorlton area there is a good home brew club - meets once a month
    Cheers

    Yep! talking and drinking samples of home brew - meets every 2nd Wednesday at 'The Font' pub in Chorlton 8pm start.
    I think the Manchester one meets at 'Beermoth' in Manchester once a month.
    Cheers

    Regarding kit: try to plan ahead, and don't think "I'll never need to brew more than 1 gallon".
    Welcome!
