Well, despite all of the negativity some have for a Mr. Beer, I'm pleased to
say my first batch was as good or better than store bought lol. I think
after 1 or 2 more batches in it, then I'll move to more advanced equipment
though. Just so I can make more per batch. Race season is coming, and I need
something to fill the cooler when I go spectator lol.

Just like you, Mr. Beer was a success.  Let it set for 7 days, bottled it
for 7 days.  Not bad tasting.  Good christmas present....

I've heard more than one brewer give kudos to Mr. Beer for getting them
started.

Well, it depends, lol. I'm on a college budget, so it could either be
Guinness, Corona, Bud or Bud Lite, MGD or Miller Lite, or when I'm really
broke I splurge on Nati Light, lol. So, I guess I'd say it was better than
the typical domestics then. Either way, it was better than coughing up
$10-15 for a 12 or 24 pack and did taste better, lol.

I doubt it was better than the Guinness, but I can imagine it'd be better
than the rest you mentioned.

May I make a bold suggestion?  Save you nickels for a spell and try a few
interesting micros.  It'll be worth the wait, I promise.  ;)

I've brewed many batches from Mr. Beer - had some good outcomes
(usually stouts), some fair brews (ales and reds) and some that were
pretty rough - American lights.

I think you'll find that the storebought beers will seem to
taste good, except for the superpremiums. It's a hazard of the hobby,
but I can live with it - though my friends think I'm getting to be a
bit of a snob because I bring my own beer now. (I usually bring enough
for friends..)

I think your plan is right on - get a feel on how the overall process
works, then move up to better equipment - it is quite a bit more
complicated, but the results are great!

Good luck and happy brewing!
