    Me, I like beer. I mean when I say like, it's old school playground, LIKE LIKE.

    So I am gonna build a microbrewery :beer: in my garage and add that to my chemistry skills at the grill.

    But, what kind of beer should I make. I like Japanese beers (Kirin, Asahi) and I like MGB (sue me I know what the world thinks of American Beer)

    And, what grill/bbq feast is worthy of a homebrews inaugeration?

    Help........

    Do you have enough time to brew now? A week is enough?

    Actually I don't. :( Went to the homebrew stores/sites locally and started reading. :read:
    Looks like I will have to do my usual brilliant BBQ and schedule another one to commemorate the batch in a couple of months. Twas more expensive than I guessed and I gotta make all the purchases in two different runs.

    Amazing how real life gets in the way of a great idea huh?

    Me and a bud are looking to brew also.

    Q: Can I keep a Mini Keg cold enough in an old fridge???

    Q: Can I keep the Co2 in the freezer portion of the fridge?

    If so, then we have the perfect set up. We have an old fridge in his garage
    and it's big enough for the keg on one side and some chilled glasses and
    Co2 in the freezer (freezer is not on top of the fridge, has duel doors).
    Then we're going to tap it through the door of the fridge.

    Q: Is there a better way to do this with the materials I have?

    I got no clue Big J. I think it sounds plausible but we need to discover the freezing/liquifaction point of the CO2.

    If it works your percentage of :boobies: just went up.

    BTW, has anyone ever used or tasted beer from the Mr Beer system or any other all in one kits? It's cheaper than the from scratch homebrew store I am looking at. But if I am gonna wait a couple weeks, I want beer that rocks, y'know?
