I’m a noob. I’ve been thinking about homebrewing for a few weeks, and when we got a phone call from my boyfriend’s brother in Iraq, he said that he wanted to give it a shot too. Since he’s coming home on leave in feb, I figured it’d be fun to have a couple different types to choose from, then he could pick what to brew.
So we went out and bought a full home-brew kit with everything, a 6 gallon glass jug, a 5 gallon one, a 5 g bucket with the spigot, all the other paraphernalia that goes with it, and the kit came with our choice of a mix. Since my boyfriend isn’t too fond of ambers, but loves hef, we got the wheat beer mix. Anyway, we sanitized everything carefully then boiled our water, added the 2 syrups, (one was the actual mix, the other was wheat syrup or something to replace the sugar).
