First pour pictures and a note to new brewers!!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I started brewing the day after Christmas and I was so excited. Before I even started brewing I was on the forums constantly! Reading them in bed with my girlfriend, at work (like I am now) It is the best way to get information on what to do .

A special note to new brewers:

I am still one myself, I am no way as experienced at the vets on this site. I have a total of one batch complete and two more brewing as we speak. This is my first batch of the Czech Pilsner. I did the 3-4 method as it seemed to be the common theme on the site. It seems to be the MOST IMPORTANT thing (in my opinion after sanitation) in brewing. That wait is rough but it is so worth it.  My LBK yielded 11 PET bottles that came with the kit. I tried one a week early just to get a flavor profile and to see how much better my final product could be. Oh man was that early beer hard to take down, you could taste the "green" , That extra week really turned my beer into a beer that I was actually proud of.

All in all I am pleased with how it came out. I would have loved a little more ABV (but when chasing flavor ABV will come) and some more head retention, but as a first beer, I can't complain. Enjoy the pics, cheers everyone.

Austin:

Congrats on your success.  However, I need to point out a few problems with what you've posted:

1) "Reading posts on the forum in bed with my girlfriend".  REALLY?  Are you freakin' kidding me?  I have no problem posting helpful tips and answers on how to brew beer, but do we really have to tell you what you should be doing in bed with your girl friend?  Wow...

2) You'll find that while your beer tastes better with more time, it also will taste better if you serve it in a tasteful glass.  Ron Burgundy is not a tasteful guy, nor is that glass...

Way to go on the patience and teaching others!

I agree with rick on both points. While Ron burgundy isn't a tasteful guy, he is definitely a classy one. And would go much better with some scotch. Scotch, scotch, scotch , I love scotch. Lol

Some people refer to beer photos as "Beer Porn" so I guess it's appropriate to read the forum in bed with your girlfriend.

 I love my beer but I don't waste my time reading about it if I'm in the bed with the wife. You have many things to learn my man.

#1- Waiting on beer is excellent.

#2- A woman in bed waiting for you to stop reading about beer is not.

Otherwise, good work!

In Austin's defense.  He never said what they were doing before he was reading the forum.  I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt.

what would really be bad is if his wife is reading the forums in bed, especially if she had no interest in brewing, while he lay there with his Burgundy in his hand.
