Anyone here make their own beer/ciders?

I just picked up a new bewing kit, upgraded from a shitty little Mr. Beer keg fermenter to a real carboy/wartboiler setup.

Anyone have any good recipes they would like to share?

I brew at the local brewpub....they have a thriving operation in the back room where you can make your own beers (based on their recipes). I made a Belgian Trippel in Nov and still have 2 bottles left. You get 72-22oz bottles of beer when youre thru, about 13.5 gallons of beer....
I may have a problem....

i can do 12.5 gal at a time now....

thinking of making a doppelbock first time round

if you're thinking of getting into it, and not ready for large scale stuff look at the 2.5 gallon Mr. Beer fermenter kegs, they make everything really easy, and you can always run more than one batch at a time

i'd do that but there isnt a place around here like that

i spent a total of about 200 bucks ... 6.5 gallon carboys, a wart boiler, 2 fermenters, tubing to make a wart chiller, and all the gizmo tools

we'll see how well it works
