never tried brew yet but I want to learn, try and practice
Welcome to the forum Dave.
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.
Maybe it can AA but I can't buy 5 aches of land, a house, barn and sauna in the forest, nobody within a mile in the uk Can't wait to go
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
I didn't know there were groups that meet up and talk about home brewing, thanks
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.
Welcome to the forum Dave, good luck
Hi mate so much info on here with a friendly atmosphere, good luck!
Regarding kit: try to plan ahead, and don't think "I'll never need to brew more than 1 gallon".
Hi Bud, welcome to the forum and happy brewing
