Well, I have already used all of your knowledge with nary an introduction! So here goes. I live in Hout Bay (google it ;-) ) and during lock down for 'rona I started watching the apartment brewer and several others on youtube. I was enthralled! And so, without a thought about the complexity of this thing I had my wife sew up a cotton bag and bought some malt, hops and yeast from the local home brew supply store. It was an all grain "kit" and came with instructions. The beer was not bad at all. So I bought more malt and yeast and made up my own recipe. The result was exceedingly tasty and did not last long. So here I am, hooked on home brewing like just another crack addict! And as every new brewer finds out - patience is a thing! Thanks all for your welcome and helpful advice. I hope I can help others as i have been helped to brew the nectar of the gods.
