When I first started getting into craft beer is when I first started homebrewing. I had these grand delusions of making amazing beer that would stand beside Dogfish Head and Stone and New Glarus. What I quickly realized is that I'm not nearly as good of a brewer as Dan Carey or Sam Calagione.
But, it is a fun way to kill a Saturday morning. The amount of beer I brew, unfortunately, is directly related to the number of Saturday mornings I have to kill. Not only is it a good hobby, but, it's also the best way to learn how to taste beer, what each component brings to the flavor profile, what each step of the brewing process brings to the flavor profile; and, it gives you a full appreciation for the hard work that goes into keeping all of the equipment clean.
So, as I was ramping up to get back into home brewing and planning my first recipe in a few years (likely an Oktoberfest), I was wondering how many of you out there homebrew? How long have you been doing it? What's your favorite recipe that you've made?
