I just tried my first homebrew and it's fantastic . Its a porter from my LHBS called Vulcan Butt Porter. Its been in bottles for 2 weeks now and following the B3 instructions is ready to drink. I have read a lot on this forum and also the howtobrew website and any other info Google would give me. I'm in now rush to drink it all up since according to the 123 method mentioned in throughout the forum pages it's still a little green (only 4 weeks old). Anyway, its got a great flavor, no off flavors, good carbonation and if you hold it up to the light so you can see thru it, appears to have good clarity. Thanks to all here for your great info. I can't wait to get my next batch (a light ale that currently in the fermenter) into bottles and try it.
