Best of luck! Definitely something we'll try again (maybe with some tweaks)

This is my first brew by myself so I have a stupid question about this part "Add 2.5 gallons distilled water to brew pot. Heat to approximately 150-180F. Soak oats for 30 minutes."

Do the oats go in a bag or do i just toss them in and leave them?

You can put them in a hop bag, grain bag, (or paint strainer bag--what I have started using) or you can just throw them in. If you do just throw them in you have to have a way to strain them out. Most of my brews I have just thrown the hops, grains, etc in and strained them out. This will lead to a less "clear" beer--but if you don't care about aesthetics (which I don't) then go for it.

Ok I did the brew yesterday and I think it went well. The airlock is going crazy tonight! One thing though, it smells terrible. I can't place it, but it smells like something I might not want to drink. Did yours smell awful?

I hope it still turns out okay! Our batch smelled pretty good throughout the whole process - it's pretty handy having a microbiologist to sterilize everything.

Well my batch is going strong. My OG was a little higher. It's gone from 1.063 to 1.024 in 5 days. Also I don't think it actually smells bad, I have a cold and everything smells/tastes bad at the moment haha.

I do have a question though, why did you use this specific yeast?

No big reason, it's what the brew shop had. I've heard different strains of yeast give different characters to the beer, but haven't gotten to that level of detail yet.

It's been in the keg for 2 days, probably going to sneak a taste in a bit

I snuck a taste too... If you don't like it, just remember this beer gets a lot better after 2-3 weeks. (at least in bottles, I haven't tried keg brewing)
