Will do. I was surprised it hit 1.013 in 2 weeks.

First taste is pretty good. It's been carbing since Saturday at 10psi. I think by the weekend it'll be better. Still a little sweet without the full carb. Nice caramel flavor with slight hop taste coming through. I don't get much orange taste but the aroma is there a little.

I just brewed this on Saturday and am excited to see how it turns out as well. I'm going to primary for 4 weeks and then bottle. I'm really glad I read the reviews on NB about using a blowoff tube as my first few days of fermentation have been crazy. Did either of you need one?

I did for sure!

4 weeks will be perfect. But I did reach FG in 2.5

Other notes ... The orange is there

Yup, pretty good brew! I made a batch up fo my Christmas party on Dec. 1. Both craft beer drinker and big box drinkers all liked this. I had 4 different kegs of beer plus several meads, so I had about 1/2 of the keg of Brickwarmer left after the party. It's tasting even better 3 weeks later.

Default Blowoff

I just ordered this kit and plan on brewing it on New Years Day. I will be using a 6 1/2 gallon fermentation bucket and was wondering if you guys would recommend a blow off hose. All the reviews I have read, recommend one. However, I have never used one and not quite sure what to do. Do I just attach a hose to my 3 piece airlock? Then put the hose into a bucket of sanitizer? Would I then need to change out the sanitizer after a week or so or could I just put on the traditional airlock once activity has slowed? Any help would be much appreciated.


Cole
