After years of brewing, I'm still learning the same lesson over and over. Yeast is pretty unpredictable stuff, and strange things happen, but it always ends up as beer. As long as you don't make a big sanitation / cleanliness mistake, it will probably be good beer too.

And if it gets infected, call it a sour beer and tell everybody you did it on purpose. If they don't like it, it is because their pallet isn't as developed as yours.

Some people like to dry hop in their primary, but I believe the majority will transfer to a secondary for that. I always dry hop in a secondary.

An IPA is a great first beer, since they're best fairly young, and most new brewers are anxious to taste the fruits of their labor.

Welcome to the obsession. You're definitely in good company here.
Welcome to the forum Nick, as you are already experiencing, HBT is the single most informative place to be for anything pertaining to brewing. I have been brewing for about 4 years now, starting with the deluxe kit that you purchased and advancing to an automated microbrewery in my basement, so yes it is addictive. For me, the DIY projects associated with brewing are equally as addicting as the beer making process. I couldn't have advance without the help of HBT members. There are truly some brilliant people that are very willing to help. Good luck!

Hey Valtyr, I grew up in Osseo and went to Hillsdale High School. I graduated in '91. Small world.

Oh, wow. I haven't heard Osseo mentioned in over a decade. Hahaha. I graduated in 2005. If his stories are true, we very well might have had the same chemistry teacher. Very small world.

I dated a girl from Tecumseh in high school and have a lot of family in Adrian and Blissfield. Sorry to hijack your thread OP.

Oh, wow. I was born in Adrian, and lived there for a little while when I was really young.
