@khurtwilliams honestly blown away. It’s really good. Shared with some friends and they said the same.

@jjeaton is this your first time brewing or do you have experience? I want to try home brewing.

@khurtwilliams first time! We bought the Northern Brewer kit off Amazon for Christmas. Getting ready to try another recipe and brew again, it yielded 4.2gal or 45 bottles

@jjeaton good to know. I'll look for the Northern Brewer kit. Was it easy?

@khurtwilliams here’s the kit we got. It really was pretty easy. The stressful part is making sure you sanitize everything thoroughly. The instructions are sparse so I read those and watched their YouTube videos. We bought starsan too and used an extra 5 gal bucket for cleansing

@jjeaton thank you for the link. Can this be done in a condo size galley kitchen?

@khurtwilliams probably! Might be a little cramped, but it really didn’t take up too much room. We left it to ferment in our pantry. It’s just the size of the bucket for that period. Is that your kitchen? It’s nice 😀

@jjeaton that's out kitchen. It was the overdue "empty nest project" we completed before the pandemic sent our kids back home from university.
