Wil Wheaton Starts homebrewing

Best quote from the blog:

"Is there one type of beer that's more difficult than another?"

"Not really," he said. "Most of the beers you're going to make are pretty simple and forgiving. The hardest thing to make, honestly, is something like Budweiser."

Before I could say, "I said beer," he continued: "That's a very pale lager that doesn't leave much margin for error."

So they make that shit taste that way on purpose? And it's difficult? Wow, I learned something today.

Another quote:

"I asked Twitter for advice on forums, and here are the most frequently-recommended sites:

  • Alton Brown on Homebrewing. (For the record, I <3 Alton Brown. He's my favorite.)"


And that kids, is why you NEVER trust advice from Twitter :P

(anyone here should watch AB's homebrewing vid - I think his cooking stuff is great but the homebrew effort pretty much defines "phoning it in").
