Hey all, I've been lurking for a bit here but wanted to say "Thanks" for all the great info I've read through so far! I just recently started my first brew (Friday), and I'm excited to see how it all turns out. I kept reading, and dammit, wouldn't ya know, I had bought another ale pail and started a cider on Sunday... oops.
I think I've got the itch pretty bad! I'll look forward to sharing my experiences with y'all in the coming weeks.
