Yes, I'm addicted. Once I started going All-Grain, my beers are fresher and better tasting then pretty much anything I can buy from the store.. and a hell of a lot cheaper!
Imperial Stouts are big beers, but Porters and Stouts are a great way to get into the hobby, as they will hide a lot of newbie mistakes. I just brewed a FANTASTIC Robust Porter.
Be warned, it's a very slippery slope. I started in August doing stovetop extract brewing, and have quickly purchased/made the following equipment:
Copper Immersion Chiller
Barley Crusher Grain Mill
I'm now doing All-Grain and my beers are fantastic. I can brew a 5 gallon batch for around $15 using bulk grains/hops, reused yeast. I live in Canada, so I don't have access to the wonderful Craft Beers from the USA.. oh well, I can just brew clone recipes and drink something really close to the commercial version.
I just bought 4 Corny Kegs.. can't wait to get kegging.
Somehow I have to get through the 6 cases of beer still waiting to be consumed
I'm about to embark on my first sour beer.. super excited.
A Hoppy American Amber I just brewed.
Anyway, it's a great hobby and can be as simple or as complicated as you want it to be. If you love beer, it's a no-brainer!
