Wollen, When I first did NB kits, their basic directions confused me a little, after doing the 2nd one, I realized its best to follow the timing guidlines list with the ingredients on the box lid of the kit. Much easier that way.

BTW - GO K S U Wilidcats!!!!!

@BeerCigars - hey hey hey... Go Cats!

Thanks for the advice. Yeah, after about my third brew, I realized that the kit had a bit more detail on it than the instructions did. And... even better... here in this forum I've found a lot of great advice on this type of thing as well. The stout turned out really well. I nailed the OG at 1.053 so hopefully it'll turn out well.

Zoiks! Came home today and the Dark Cherry Stout (which, btw had started bubbling 30 min. after I had pitched the yeast) had blown roughly a half gallon of the wort through the blow off tube into my overflow bucket (which was about half full of sanitizer). Anyway, the damn thing was nearly full and the bubbles are so "explosive" coming through the tube that it had splattered wort around the overflow bucket onto my table. Thank God for blow-off tubes. I had no idea that this particular stout would have such an active initial fermentation.

@BeerCigars - will do. BTW, do you get to Churchill's a lot? I really enjoy their selection.

Not really. I dont like their customer service and prices.
Centro in Lawrence has an even better selection. Most of the time I order online or trade with guys on another Forum.
