Default First 2 AG brews

I just kegged my first two AG brews and I think they both turned out pretty good. I did an IPA which may be a bit light on the hops (didn't feel that way when I was pitching them in the boil! but still tasty even before carbing.

The second was Biermunchers Centennial Blonde. This one I remembered the Irish Moss and it went right form primary to the keg. The trub has settled hard on the bottom of the bucket and I was able to siphon very nearly the last drop without picking up the gunk. Tasted very good even flat and warm and young.

So, I'm excited now that I've had a taste of my first two beers and ready to do it again and learn even more!

Congrats!!!

Were you doing full boils with extract before or partial? Asking regarding your hop additions remark.
