    Very helpful! I am researching, pre-gaming as it were before I even attempt this stuff… I found the break-down of equipment especially useful; and it was informative seeing your personal experience in this process. Lots of good tips!

    While I like using pint bottles with swing caps, they are a pain to wash.

    Living in a warmer part of the country, how do you recommend one keeping the fermentation process at a constant 70 degrees? My house runs warm. Are those beer carboy cooler jackets just a gimmick or worth the money?

    i found that the best way to save money is to get equipment off of family members. if they have the stuff, that is.

    I've been home brewing for about a year and a half now, bottling the whole time….now you've convinced me to lean towards kegging…I'll miss my different colored bottle caps and corn sugar

    Otis, can I use artificial enzymes on unmalted barley? In one video I saw a person using alpha-amylase and gluco-amylase in corn to convert the starch to sugar. I am just wondering whether I can do the same with barley so that I can skip the germination and drying process. Please let me know 🙂
