So I have been thinking I would like to try my hand at doing a homebrew. In my new house I have a nice big 3 car garage (even with a upstairs–yes be jealous, very jealous). I think I have plenty of room to do this beer brewing in.
I tend to like beers in the amber range. My favorite local (Seattle area) beers are Manny’s Pale Ale, MacnJack’s African Amber or Redhook ESB. So I would like to brew something in that range but have no idea of how easy or difficult that will be.
1-how difficult will this honestly be? Are we talking cases of cases of mediocre beer before I find a reasonable tasting beer? I hate to think about drinking all that crappy beer when I could have a good one that I actually like!
2-how much money will my initial investment be–roughly? What kind of equipment will I need?
3-any advice you have would be awesome
