Just to clarify...By no means was I telling anyone to go to hell, when I mentioned the big box stores.

As was stated earlier, any beer resembling PBR is a lot harder to brew than you think. A profile that small screams out any mistakes you might have made. Those dudes have PBR making nailed down to an absolute science...Don't be fooled.
However...First thing to do is read John Palmer's book How to Brew & Charlie Papazian's book The Complete Joy of Homebrewing...Read them both a few times.
Then, buy this: http://www.midwestsupplies.com/master-brewers-kit-with-kegging-setup.html
Then, go to Walmart/Target/Kmart/Home Depot/Lowes/Big Box Hell & buy yourself a big picnic cooler...Over 60 quarts, because you'll want to do huge batches, at some point. Look up how to modify it for brewing...There are several instructional videos & websites that utilize a toilet hose, ball valve & a few fittings.
Also, pick up a 20+ quart stainless steel pot & some long spoons.
Then, go online & order this: http://www.waresdirect.com/products/Restaurant-Supply/Update-International/60-Qt168824
After that, get yourself a propane burner like this: http://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/brewing-equipment/burners/low-profile-banjo-burner-burner-and-stand.html
Once that's ordered...Get this: http://www.barleycrusher.com/barleycrusher.php
Get 20 to 50 feet of 3/8" copper tube & make a chiller.
Buy 5 more cornelius kegs...You'll need them.
Look for a clone recipe of a beer you like & brew it like 5 times.
Oops...I think I just exceeded your $1,000

Ingredients / Re: Citra hops smell like cat urine to me
« on: August 13, 2010, 07:22:43 AM »
I have been using a lot of citra, over the last few months.
Initially, they can impart a cat-pee smell.
But, all have improved drastically with age.

Now...
The actual cat-pee I recently smelled on Rabe's shoes...
That can't be improved with age.

All Grain Brewing / Re: Chewy Grain

If your grain is actually damp & not just stale, you should be able to dry it a bit, in the hot sun.
It probably won't take very long...Like a matter of minutes.
