WelcomeKen Schmidt's Brews
I made my first batch in 1966. It was just a Pale Ale. However, homebrewing was not legal until 12 years later. Because of that, there weren’t any specialty supply stores like we have now. Blue Ribbon Malt Extract with hop flavor was the only ingredient you could get at a grocery store. Overall, the ingredients were horrible, and it turned out to be such a terrible beer. I didn’t try again for several years, and it definitely got better. more
