    I have started homebrewing beer so I can make what I like. It's pretty amazing exactly what you can brew with such little investment. Have an Octoberfest fermenting, and a rye IPA getting started. The hardest part is waiting. 2 weeks in fermenter, 2 weeks in secondary, and 2 weeks conditioning in bottles. But, it makes for some decent beers, catered to my tastes. What do you all do in your spare time?

    Small electronic projects: guitar amp, mp3 player, solar battery station, arduino projects, .... but it's on hold for now, cause toddler takes all my free time :-)
    Homebrewing beer is high on wish list ... can you share some good links ?

    I understand you there. We have a beautiful 4 month old girl that waits until we are engaged in something, and then decides to be mad at the world. As far as info, http://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum.php has some great stuff. This is the kit I started with, and is almost eveything you need to get a brew going. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/brewing-starter-kit-1.html I added a decent thermometer, and an extra fermenter bucket with airlocks, just because I knew I would like it. You also need a pretty decent sized pot to boil the wort (juvenile beer) Some of my customers are into it, so I had an idea of what I was getting into. I think the hardest part is waiting. It is all just a simple process, and as long as you are detail oriented, you can make some pretty killer beer. Oh yeah, if you do decide to do it, pick up a product called Star-San. And sanitize everything, and then again. Here is a pretty good place for info as well http://www.reddit.com/r/Homebrewing/comments/g5dle/homebrewing_resources/ And the book "How to brew" is free online, but I bought a copy to support it. http://www.howtobrew.com/intro.html Hope this helps some.
