DIS Dads Craft Beer/Homebrewing Enthusiast Thread

Gents -

I figured we could use a thread to talk about craft beer and homebrewing with all the recent chatter over on DDC X. Here's a place to talk about your favorites brews, brewers and local gems. Plus we can share recipes, tips and answer general (or specific) questions about homebrewing.

Cheers,
Indy

In case this actually takes off, this space reserved to be a recipe link page.

Great thread idea. I have been making my own homemade ice cream, maybe it's time to get back into the family business.

Family business?? Beer or Bourbon?

Cheers,

So for those that drive to Disney, where's the local bottle shop? I'm specifically looking for anything from Cigar City Brewing. Any thoughts??

Cheers,
Indy

I don't make a lot of beer. But I have made a few batches. We have a place here called THE BREW KETTLE, and they kinda manage it for you, but are completely open to allowing you to create your own recipes.

If nothing else, the link above is a good read.

I have 40+ batches under my belt, which was skewed a lot towards the beginning. I don't think I've brewed anything or over 6 months. I have to get some thing going soon. I do mostly partial mash due to equipment constraints, but do group brews reasonably often that are always all grain.

Beer kits or equipment kits?

Here's your basic equipment kits

As for beer kits - just pick a style that you like and go with it. Brown Ales or Red Ales are always good to start with.

Cheers,
Indy

I'm watching this thread with interest. I've almost gotten into home brewing a couple of times. The hold up usually ends up being some combination of equipment costs, concern about space for brewing equipment, and concerns about bottling.
