The owner of my local homebrew shop (local legend) likens home brew to macaroni and cheese:
- Kraft Dinner - simple homebrew kit
- Organic fancy boxed mac & cheese - buying wort, like Brew House kits
- Sauce made from scratch using cheddar - Extract only brews
- Sauce made from scratch using whatever cheese you damn well please - Extract + specialty grain brews
- Turning the crank on the pasta maker, full creative control over the sauce - all grain brew
If you're into it Dyz, I'm sure there are plenty of homebrew shops in your town. The quality of them will vary (and rare are the shops that sell grain and fresh hops) but it's all available online too. Especially when you're starting out though, you want to find a shop where people know their brew so you can benefit from their experience while you sprint up that learning curve.
Gotta love it.
While little yeasties make my beer delicious, I've been stuck on Torpedo IPA. That is just an absolutely top-shelf beer.
