Default batch #1 brewed today!

i brewed my first batch today. it was the "barking dog scottish ale" extract recipe that was taken from a recent zymurgy magazine.

milling specialty grains.....




batch #1 primary fermentation




my buddy, barefootbrewer, watched me on my first batch. went off without a hitch. i'm crossing my fingers it turns out good.

this is pre-hot break....




i actually didn't get a hot break until i added the hops. i had a good bit of headspace in the pot, so it boiled up and fell into itself. never had to kill the heat.

once i switch that into secondary, i'm going to see if i can fit a large and small carboy in the refrigerator. if so, i'm going to try to brew the 60 minute ipa recipe in the "extreme brewing" book by sam.
