I brewed a brown ale kit from my local HBS on January 8th.....tried a bottle for the first time yesterday and I gotta say I'm impressed. It was VERY good!!!
I know I can improve on it, as it seemed to not have much flavor at first taste and then a very good aftertaste. Don't know what that means. Maybe aging will improve that?
Seemed really high in alchohol content too (had a little buzz after one of 'em!!!!) . I don't know what it is because I only got a FG reading...my hydrometer broke the first day I had it. Darn things are fragile!!!
Now I have two more batches in secondary, and if they turn out anything like this one did I might stick with this hobby!
