Default First Brew Day! (56K go have a beer)

Finally brewed my first batch today. It's an export stout kit from Muntons. Before the boil I steeped some Crystal 60L, I also added two pounds of Briess Light DME. Everything went very well. I thank everyone here for their advice and knowledge. Now time for some pics.

Very cool. Welcome to the addiction.
FWIW,you may want to get a thermometer with a smaller range, say 50-220F. It will make for more accurate readings.
Hope you enjoyed your brewday.
Cheers!!!

You're way too organized and have too much equipment for a first batch. Not cool.


I mean, cmon, a chiller? An SQ14, and a properly sized pot? For real?
