Steeps
Hello to everyone on the forum.

My name is Terry Steeper, nickname Steeps and I've been brewing now for about 12 months. My partner and I usually brew wine & beer from kits, but have recently started 2 batches of home made apple wine from pressed juice and other ingredients - we're hoping they taste good!

I'm looking to do similar with my beer, ie step up from the kits and I hope I can draw on all your collective knowledge if (when) I come up against problems or need to know how to proceed.

Anyway, thanks for letting me join
Best regards
Steeps

Hello steeps and welcome to the forum!
What sort of beer do you brew?
We’ve a few wine brewers on here but mostly beer lovers.
Any advice needed, shout! And someone more knowledgable than me will usually help...

Welcome along Steeps! I'm also fairly new to homebrew and I'm just about to have a go at my first all grain brew, but the guys here are great- they answer all your questions- even the stupid ones!

Big welcome Terry, good to have you on board. We are mostly beer brewers here, mostly grain brewers, but we have all progressed through the stages and some of us still do kits and some of us make wine and cider too. 

Beer wise, you can step up to extract brewing, and steep some grains. You can do a small grain mash and add that to a kit instead of sugar. And that will lead on to all grain brewing if you wish - very rewarding and very good beer. Ask away, and check out the how-to forum.

The razorback was my first brew since taking the hobby up proper, it’s a good un.

Hi Terry, welcome aboard. Most of us started with kits and then moved on to all grain. Do look at the how to guide as quite a few of us started with small batch stove top brews.

The method described is very easy and doesn’t require a load of new equipment.

Ask anything you’re not sure about. We’ve all been there.

Cheers

I don’t have hobbies. I’m developing a robust post-apocalyptic skill set.

I read that as ‘pickling your brains’

Was gong to remark we do enough of that to ourselves
