I've bottled 2 batches so far. The first was a pilsner that is pretty good for my first go, just needs to be a little more clear in the cup but it tastes like a Coors original so I'm ok with that. My 2nd batch was a black raspberry wheat beer. Mainly for the wife for the fruit beer. I bottled 24 of wheat and 24 black raspberry. So far it's been bottled for almost 2 weeks and I tried one of each and they were good for only being a week old.

I will throw out this one bit of advice – use craigslist and the for sale forum here to gear up. I’ve saved a lot of money by doing so. If you can pluck one of the all-inclusive setups used, they are usually cheaper. I ended up building my own kegerator. Man it was a lot of work but if you don’t care what it looks like, there’s some super deals out there for used ones as well of those. Mine had to look nice for the living room, so I built it myself.
I browse craigslist daily and scored about 350 bottles for free! There's a guy in my home town that makes keggles, immersion chillers, and just about anything I could want.

I use my wife's linen closet to ferment. Sits about 64-66 degrees and has been perfect so far.
