Good morning all,
Greetings from the most jacked up city in America!
Sunday I started my first Austin Home brew kit and I decided on doing the Shiner Clone. I have read these forums many times and I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for the advice found EVERYWHERE within these "walls".
Your advice and suggestions are incredible especially to a newbie like me.
Right now I have my ferment-er sitting in my guest bathroom tub (without water of course) and it is holding at around 24C. (Bout 72 to 74F).
The sulfur smell (fart smell) was a tad bit strong (not overwhelming by any means) but I have read that is perfectly normal and will dissipate after fermentation and with bottle conditioning.
I plan on leaving this in the Primary for 2 weeks. I am completely new to this since I have only done Cooper's kits with fairly good results but I am ready to graduate in order to put on my big boy pants.
I will keep you updated on my progress. I am using the White Labs WLP833 for my yeast. Right now the beer is looking ok but it has only been 2 days.
Thanks all and happy Tuesday to you!
Take care and suggestions and advice are more than welcomed!
