This year, my resolution is to try new things. I really want to make sure that I’m getting everything I can out of life and that I continue to find new challenges to take on, even if I’m not doing anything crazy.
Since I’m settled in my current apartment and job, this is the first year in a while where my resolution didn’t directly have to do with my home or work lives. Instead, I want to make sure that I don’t become bored by my situation and work to make myself more interesting.
Because of these goals, I thought I might try brewing my own beer at home. I have always loved to try new craft beers while out for drinks with friends or on a brewery tour, but it never occurred to me that I could do this myself as well.
In honor of my resolution, I ordered myself a Mr. Beer Deluxe Brewing Kit, and plan to have my first batch completed in time for the Super Bowl. It took me a while to decide which home brewery kit to try, but this one makes two gallons of beer – which is definitely enough to share with my friends – and has everything I need.
In addition to having all of the ingredients and materials that I need, this beer brewing kit has a refill so I can make two batches of beer without needing to buy new ingredients. Plus, it comes with an instructional DVD about the brewing process, which should be very helpful, since I’m a novice. I can’t wait to kick my year off right and get started!
