Anyone into this already? Any tips/suggestions or anyone in the philly area interested?

I'm starting out as a new hobby, a little cheaper then mods on the v6. Going to clone Dogfish 60min to start, then work on my own ipa, think I'll call it Mustang IPA.

Seems like a good idea. I have a couple buddies that do it. But.... It seems like work... And I'm lazy... And Naty Ice is SOOOO cheap. Let us know how it turns out though.

A lot of prep time, a little work on two days.. Six plus weeks of waiting (drinking another batch) then beer! I'll let you know. This kit seems mostly simplified, only a couple hours of work. Mr Beer is the kit.... I'll try and take a few pictures

I love Home Brew I have not done it in years. The one caution I will give you is for the bottles. Never use twist off cap bottles and always use the darkest bottle you can get your hands on. he clear bottles work but after awhile they will start fermenting again and that is what causes the skunk taste in some beers. Maybe after I redo my 68 I will doing this again.

Twist cap bottles don't cap properly with a standard capping bell and caps. You want bottles like the craft beers or coronas (lid style not color) that you use a bottle opener to remove the cap from. As far as bottle color, you want the dark brown ones to prevent uv light from interacting with the compounds from the hops and skunking up your beer. Clear and green bottles don't stop uv light as well as brown

I have mostly dark brown dogfish bottles and Sam Adams so it sounds like it'll be ok! Thanks!

Never had a Dogfish beer but the Sam Adams bottles are great for doing this. I have about 12 cases of bottles that I drank at one time or another and a few more cases of bottles I just went out and bought. Make sure they are clean then after filling store in a dark cool (not freezing) place and let me know when they are done so I might come over for one.

I was planning on leaving them in an old case in bottom of my closet or next to he heater, both are cool but temp controlled. Sure if you're anywhere near Cherry Hill, NJ!
