The new hobby...

Welcome to the blog. My name is Jeff and I am going to make beer. If you have ever wanted a cool hobby, this is definitely one to try. I have been reading up on some great home brewing books including Charles Papazian's Complete Joy Of Homebrewing, and Karl F. Lutzen's  Brew Ware and figured....I can do that. I like beer. I drink it often, and have become quite the taster at the ripe old age of 28. After all, although it may sound like a daunting task, all you really need to make beer is a few key components, most of which are available in convenient pre-packaged kits these days. I will be outlining some of these steps that I take, my personal equipment, ingredients, and encourage you to read a long and enjoy my mishaps, my successes, and also welcome advice! After all, this is a Homebodies Guide to Home Brewing!  Lets get started.


  1. You and my husband would have alot in common, he has beer brewing in our dining room right now, boy does that stuff stink in the beginning process!! lol...
