Equipment cost, to start at an extract level, is roughly $200, including a "starter kit", first beer supplies, and a 20 qt brew kettle. Space wise, you need a corner in a cool, dark, spot in your basement, about 6' x 6' for your fermenter and cases of homebrew. Bottling isn't as daunting as it looks, just a PITA and time consuming. The biggest thing is to be diligent in your cleaning and sanitation. Pick up "How to Brew" by John Palmer, The complete Joy of Homebrewing by Charles Papazian, and Homebrewing for Dummies.

The real cost comes when you step up to all grain. You can make some really good beers using extract, so no reason to hurry to all grain.

Cheers,
Indy

I would love to brew my own bourbon. Having it age in the barrels - smells, tastes - but I have no idea how to even start that. Plus, I don't have a basement. Maybe I can age it in the living room.

Bourbon is a distilled product. Beer would be far simpler and legal.

Knightly Spirits, looks like the one I used to on Hiawasee has closed/moved. There is one just a few miles north it seems, do a google search and there is one just north of the kingdom, also a few off of 4.

Last time I was there, there was a Cigar City Release the next day, picked up Campeador, but they have there regular stuff too.

Um, yeah, that's called "moonshine" and it's illegal.

Sweet action - I'll google maps it. Thanks so much.

I've done a barley wine that got close to 11%. Was pretty solid.

It is typically limited by the type of yeast, and the health of said yeast and of course how much consumables (sugar) you supply. 10% is not too hard to achieve, but most home-brews I would guess most home-brews fall into 5-7 range, beer is not listed as proof.

I haven't brewed in a while. We had a supply store here in Mobile, not sure if it is still open. I went one time and wasn't impressed with their selections.

I prefer midwest supplies out of St Louis. They have always done me right.
