So I bought a beer kit from My first brew is a blackberry stout. I used 2 cans of stout malt extract, a can of blackberries and a cup of molasses. It will ferment for up to 3 weeks, then I’ll bottle and let it sit for many weeks so it can carbonate and the flavors can meld. I’ll end up with 2 gallons of what I hope will be an extra tasty stout with about a 7% alcohol content.

If you’re in the US and like real beer, I recommend looking into a kit like this. It’s inexpensive, fun and easy. Plus you don’t have to drink MGD all night.
