We started out as so many have, home brewing, nearly 12 years ago. Back then it was just a cool thing to do so we could make some beer and see how well a kit turned out. In the end of 2013 we picked up the hobby a bit more seriously. We got into a system doing 5 gallon extract brews. Then we moved up to a 10 gallon all grain system. We made our own wort chiller, got a propane burner, got into kegging, and began working on a permanent brewing system.
