Default Drinking my 5gal first brew for the first time tonight!

2 weeks in primary/secondary, 1 week in keg, not too bad considering. A little lite on the carbonation but fairly close to the fat tire it was supposed to be cloned after.

Thanks for all the help, some of the tips I've read here will help on the next brews for sure. Never realized how fermentation and steeping temps were so important. But I'm learning, and I can drink my first brew and my wife is also. I think she's a little nuts causes she's been my guinea pig tester all along, even the samples. Haha. Next brew soon will be for her though.

Haha, not sure if it's good, but not bad. But it's drinkable. Gotta get some more tasters soon.

Enjoy! It will go way to fast, so as others said, get going on the next one. I hope you left out the vodka and milk.
