I've made both beer and mead in the past, two 'spurts' into the hobby if you will...and I'm getting ready to renew my interest in the hobby this weekend. I've only done malt extract brewing, with some specialty grains. Anyone else into this hobby? I got out of it before due to too many batches of mead (which has to age a while) and a few failed beer batches (all my own, impatient fault). Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
