New to forum and brewing

Recommended Posts

I am new to the forum and to brewing. I just completed my first batch yesterday and got to taste it for the first time. If I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. I brewed the West Coast pale ale that come with the kit. I was excited to crack open that first bottle and get to drinking it, but I was also cautious. Thinking to myself, what if I screwed it up and it taste nasty. Anyway here we go. I invited my brother-in-law, nephew,my two boys and wife to join in the "taste testing". Itwas a complete SUCCESS!!!!!!!! What a smooth tasting ale, no after taste, a little bite but man it was great!!!! I may never buy another case of beer from agrocery store again!!!! I put the remaining bottles in the fridge last night and it will be ready to drink when the Daytona 500 starts today... I love it!!!! I currrently have a batch of wheat beer fermenting and I have already purchased the ingredients to make a blueberry lightning, raspberr, cherry ale and a honey wheat. This is the best hobby a man could want!!!! I cant wait for the next batch to be ready!!!!!

:borg: Welcome to the BeerBorg Information Center parrotheads. You will be assimilated. Resistance is Quite Futile: WE have Beer.

Give the Simple Guide Line sticky a read. You'll find some usefull information there. Also, the Malt to Adjunct ratio is a good one to know as well. Both of those will give you plenty of "ponder" material. Pop back in anytime with questions or comments. B)
