    I bought a pickup truck load of brewing equipment today. Like 200 swing top bottles, carboys, brew buckets, 6 gallon stainless pots, Fermentors, bungs, airlocks, siphons, tubing, cleaning brushes, ect... For $50.00 its a lot of home brew equipment. I pick it up tomorrow.

    Nice! Definitely keep us posted on this adventure! DH has supplies for home brewing. He hasn't used it since we met (10 years). I'm tempted to try it.

    Nice, my DH has a bunch of brewing stuff but also hasn't used it since we have been together. We don't drink much, but would be fun to try it out.

    Wow, score! My ex wanted to home-brew and bought a few bits and I remember it being quite pricy once you started adding things up. You got a great deal there! :) What are you going to make?

    My ex used to make some pretty tasty beer. I have some stuff out in the garage - I might have to pull it out and see what's still there. (like I need to add anything else to my list...) But, it sounds like something I might enjoy trying. :hu

    It can be like a garden -- you want to, then a lot of work. I just don't drink enough to make it worth my time. Nope, buy a 6 pack:p .

    But a great buy!!!
