Hi everyone,

My boyfriend is interested in learning how to brew beer.  I thought I
would get
him a kit for Christmas.  Does anyone have any
recommendations as to which kit
to buy?  Or, should I buy things
individually?  I have no idea what I need at
all, I just thought this
would be a nice gift for him.  Any help would be so
much appreciated.
Please help! Thank you.

Check out these 2 sites www.williamsbrewing.com and www.grapeandgranary.com
Both are very helpful for the new brewer.

I've been incredibly happy with the "Basic starter kit" I got from Northern
Brewer.....though I have since added a 5 gallon glass fermenter to my setup
to a allow for secondary fermentations.  Anything in this range from almost
any supplier would be a pretty awesome gift if your boyfriend has expressed
any interest in home brewing.

Cutting it a little close hey. Anyhow, your best bet is to try to find a
homebrew supplier near you.  You should be able to find one in the phone
book or do a web search for "homebrew <your town>".  If you can get to a
bookstore you could get him a book on homebrewing and then get the
equipment later. A good choice for the book would be "How To Brew" by
John Palmer.  I believe the current edition is the 3rd.
Hope that helps.
Cheers,
