it's the thrill of the chase, the exactitude of the process, the place it takes us. If that's not there for you, there are many wonderful breweries where we live who will be more than happy to keep you in great beer for the rest of your live-long days.


WELL SAID!!!!

+1! That is going up on my beer fridge!

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

Yeah, but when I tried it the link worked anyway!  Thanks for fixing my hasty typing, though.

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