Default Thanks to Yooper and Deathbrewer

I did my first AG yesterday--a small batch stovetop jobbie--and it came out perfectly. I mean I hit my OG right on the button. The only hitch in all of it was that even though I had my sparge water near 198 (as per Beersmith), adding the grains to it brought the temperature down to 160 and I had to turn the gas on under my sparge pot for a bit. Otherwise, everything went as promised, including the easy cleanup--much easier than cleaning up after an extract batch. I highly, highly recommend this to people who want to explore all-grain.

So, thanks to Deathbrewer for his tutorial, and to Yooperbrew for encouraging me to do it and giving me some last-minute coaching in chat. Long live HBT.com.

Congrats on the success. Wasn't all that hard, was it?

OH NO! You didn't really listen to anything either of those two had to say did you?!?! They don't know a thing about brewing. They are just post-whores!

Congrats on the AG.... And yes, long live HBT!

The only problem I've had with going AG is becoming an equipment whore. I want too damn much!

Congrats on the first AG!
