Set Up: Hopbox one gallon home-brewing kit

I got my Hopbox one gallon home-brewing kit. I was happy to support them via Kickstarter.

Here's the Hopbox is set up in the basement. Seems like a good place for it.

I'm excited to get started.

Getting this kit reminds me of the little chemistry set I had as a kid.

Beer making is chemistry. ;-)
