  1. Haha, when I cooked up my first batch my girlfriend was worried about the fermenter smelling up the kitchen. I just told her if she can deal with my smells, she can deal with my beer's smells, haha. theres really no smell though, unless you practically shove your face into it, lol.

  2. cool, thanks for the input guys. Of course i just wanna make sure I did everything right on this first brew to begin with. could you give some info on the process of steeping grains? I'll probably do the hops boil first, but any extra info is appreciated.

  3. Hi everybody. I'm on my first batch right now, the WCPA. My question is, if I want to progress as a home brewer, what would the next step be? I was thinking about maybe batch priming next time instead of bottle priming like it shows in the kits instructions. No mad scientist stuff, just a new technique to try so I can move forward. Also, what benefit does cold crashing have on the beer? does it improve it in any way, or is doing this just a matter of preferance?

  4. hey cleveland, Im in Northern ohio too and was worried about the same thing. I have my lbk in a cupboard in my kitchen. I had the krausen layer, then good bubbling later on. I was worried that It had gotten too cold Because the activity stopped, but I have a nice thick layer of trub on the bottom of the keg. also some bubbles, but no real activity as of now. I also have a sweatshirt wrapped around the keg to regulate temps. Everything Ive read on here says that as long as you had the krausen at the start and trub on the bottom, your making beer!

  5. Thanks guys for all the welcome messages. JSF, im a big devils fan, so I dig your avatar. and marble, im in north central ohio, near sandusky. Anyway, 2 weeks in the keg it is. I'm looking forward to learning the process and steppin up my brew game. Everyone on here seems to be very helpful. thanks alot all...

  6. Hey everybody. New guy here from Ohio. Got my kit on Xmas like a lot of others and couldn't wait to fire it up. My brother got it for me, so a few days after christmas me and him cooked up the ingredients and got it in the keg. Now I'm hooked. One question though. I notice alot of you on here say to leave the wort in the fermenter for 2 weeks. Well the instructions for the WCPA that I have says I only need to keep it in there for about 7 days. Is the 2 week time mainly to avoid bottle bombs? or are you just being thorough?
