St.Peters IPA mod

  It has been awhile since I wrote here and unfortunately the same applies to my homebrewing – modified St.Peters IPA was brewed approximately the same time as my last post.

Ready for my first homebrew

Fermentation of my very first (almost) self made ale started yesterday On this article I will just show what equipment I acquired and used (and will use in next steps) to start my first homebrew.
