Something I used to do a lot more in the past, but with all the micro-breweries around here, I basically stopped doing it about 12 years ago. Well, the kids and I were talking about brewing some root beer, we finally did it and man was it good. So we cleaned up the bottles, carboys, stoppers and tubes, and decided to make a nice lager, got a kit (I cheated because of the rust) and went to work a little over a month ago. I just popped the top off of one and it is awesome, forgot how good a home brew was. Going to make a nice stout next!
