    Looking good. Gotta love the time with your kids.
    The brew looks delicious! Mind sharing the recipe? I have been brewing kits for sometime but am planning to start doing some full scratch runs!

    Oh man, I haven't had home made jerky in a few years! That looks so good. Since leaving Colorado, I've only had the convenience store crap. And you are teaching the kiddo. Kudos!

    .25 lbs Pale Chocolate
    .25 lbs Black malt


    Sugars:
    6 lbs Amber LME
    1 lb Amber DME


    Hops:
    1 oz Goldings (bittering, full 60 min boil)
    1 oz Liberty (flavoring, 40 min)

    Yeast:
    Safale 05
    If you need me...I'll be in the woods.

    How did you learn the right amounts ? I would love to brew my own beer, only have started my Mr. Beer kit but that's nothing I wanna delve into a full craft beer. If you don't mind divulging that information !

    First off, buy the complete joy of homebrewing (the homebrewer's bible) by charlie papazian

    never heard of a mr. beer kit but I'm guessing it wasn't very good. see if you can find a local homebrew shop, if not there are several online stores.

    Best way to learn is just to make your own recipes. I've been brewing for years and only used someone else's recipes on the first two or three. I went all grain after only a few batches and decided to just make my own recipes. Never had a bad one. All grain is also great to progress your learning process. Hardest part is getting started, just do it.

    Best way to make your own recipe is look at some of your favorite beers. Start out with a base malt (usually 2 row) which is the main body of your beer, then the rest are color and flavor malts. Some breweries will list the ingredients of each beer on their website. Usually they don't give amounts but it's a good way to figure out similarities and decide what you like. Then just throw something together and do it. If you use similar ingredients it will most likely be good and brewing a recipe you made gives you a lot of confidence. And one thing I've learned over the years is everybody's palate is different, so even if you hate it, somebody else might say it's the best beer they've ever had

    There are also several opptions for fairly inexpensive brewing software which really helps with figuring out how much alcohol, color, bitterness units a given recipe is going to give you.

    I use iBrewmaster on the ipad and it really helps with organization and recipe design.
