Okay, this is serious. Every weekend (almost) we go out for lunch and have beer. We love to go to the local microbreweries and taste all their different beers. When we go to the store to buy beer we look for the new, different ones. Those from the Pacific Northwest are really good.

Anyway, I have seriously considered trying to brew beer at home. I found a site that sells Homebrew Beer Kits and they are pretty reasonable. They also sell the ingredients for making all kinds of different beers, Amber Ale, Bock, Brown Ale, and others.

I'm really thinking about doing this. I've always wanted to try it and I think it would be fun to make my own beer. Has anyone ever done this?? If so, how'd it go??
