A place to discuss all things that have to do with brewing your own beer or other alcohol.

I found out last night that my wife got me a Cooper's home brew kit for Valentine's Day. It comes with what is needed to brew a lager, and she also got me a dark ale kit. I'm pretty excited.

Anyway, BruceBrewski started a thread celebrating his first brew, but I thought a general one was in order. Share types, tips, recipes or whatever else.

Since I haven't started homebrewing yet, I can't offer many tips -- but I will say that www.homebrewtalk.com and www.beeradvocate.com are both great resources.

They are. HomeBrewTalk.com is my favorite -- it just has a wealth of information on all things homebrewing (they've even got a nice section on winemaking and cider brewing).

BeerAdvocate.com is used by most people for the beer reviews, but they do have several sub-forums (of which their homebrewing forum is one).
