Brian and I ordered the Brewing Basics Equipment Kit and Plain American Ale Kit from Midwest Supplies, and a 5 gallon pot and The Complete Joy of Homebrewing from Amazon. All we need now are bottles and a day set aside to clean and brew!
We're completely new at this whole "beer making" thing, but from what I've read so far it'll be easy and fun! The only portion that will suck is cleaning all of the equipment, but it's a necessary evil in order to make good beer.
This is just the start. When this turns out well, we'll be on our way to making all sorts of delicious types of beer. Wish us good luck!
