    If you are getting a new kit, spring for the one with the glass fermenters. They pay off in the long run. The beginner kits that they have are what I use.. they only difference is you do not have to extract the malts from the grain, that is skipped over by using malt extract. I would also go with an ale kit, as you can ferment at higher temps, unless you have a fridge to keep the fermentation temp down.

    how about rent out AP rooms like a couple weeks ahead of time and brew the beer there?

    lope

    thats GOTTA be cheeper in the long run...really...

    A decent beer takes around 6 weeks to be ready.. a good beer (like the Russian Imperial Stout that yankee liked so well) can take several months. Not to mention all the cooking required to preare it..

    Pezz: True, the beer would be safe with you, but are you driving?

    I really would like to bring more to the con next year, but getting it there is a major problem. I took 12 bottles of beer and 1 bottle of mead this year, and it was a pain in the ass to lag around the airports. Shipping it would cost a mint. Any suggestions?
    I could tote a few 6 packs for you. Of course your beer was great but I am more of a liquor kinda chick so you wouldnt have to worry about me drinking the stash.

    You have it all wrong... defcon beer should be very sweet and fizzy, It should taste exactly like soda pop. There should not even be a hint of alcohol in the taste. Although the alcohol content should be around 10 to 20 percent.

    No one will know it is beer until it is too late and they are fuked.
