I have been brewing beer at home for more than 10 years. Would like to help other people get started. I can recommend equipment, methods, ingredients, and estimate what it would cost to get set up. I have travelled a lot in Europe, and have tried many kinds of beer.

Experience in the area

More than ten years of home brewing.

What do you like about this subject?

Drinking good beer.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

So far, I have only bottled the beer I make. In the future, I plan to try putting it in kegs.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

It's easy to get started with only about $100 worth of equipment.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

If you drink too much of your beer when other people are around, that can lead to controversy.
