Adventures in brewing - Part 1

I've decided to take up a new hobby... Tomorrow I well try my hand at brewing my own beer, and truth be told, I'm very excited. I'm like, school-girl giddy the night before Christmas. (Speaking of which, that "night before Christmas and all through the house" stuff... There couldn't have been kids living in that place, cause as I recall, there was plenty of stirring the night before. I don't think I actually got any sleep the night before Christmas until I was about seventeen! I call BS on that whole story. ...yes, I find that part the most unbelievable thing about the whole story, the reindeer and the fat guy picking his nose to fly up the chimney, I have no problem with)


I've never done this before, although I've watched my brother do it about ten years ago. ugh. actually it must have been closer to 15 years ago, cause I was not even close to old enough to sample. God, I'm getting old...

I've been watching lots of youtube videos on it though, and I'm fairly confident that we should be able to get it done easily enough.

I'll be documenting the whole process to share when I'm done. Hopefully we don't smurf this up too badly! :)
