So my buddy makes beer and after watching him a couple times, I ordered a bunch of equipment for beer.. Being that it's being shipped in from California with free ground shipping, I started just browsing the brewing sites and reading. Reading got me interested in making wine... which looked easier because there's not boiling... This got me ordering a wine starter kit thinking I was going to make 6 gallon of wine with a kit... (Beer equipment was for 5 gallons)... Then reading up on wine making, I got interested in making 1 gallon test batches.. so I ended up ordering more crap.. So now I'm here reading to learn while I wait for my beer and wine making equipment... Wish me luck!
