Is this what a proud Dad feels like?

This website has by far been the greatest wealth of information into the beer brewing hobby. This beer has only been carbing for a week and a half, but I couldn't wait any longer. Put in the fridge for 3 days and that was the result. Tasted like a solid stout and had decent carbonation. There was a nice compacted yeast slurry in the bottom so I got most of the beer out of the bottle without leaving much behind.

Biggest things I learned from my first beer was airlock activity means nothing!! I fermented this for 4 weeks and only had activity on the second day for 12 hours. Sure enough it fermented. I wish I had a wort chiller and auto siphon for bottling but oh well. I also wish I had gotten all of the lme out of the container. Either way, I'm now addicted and have read through the forum for countless hours and have a starter decanting in the fridge for a hefeweizen to be brewed on Sunday!

Not sure what the proper glassware for a stout is... How's this work?

This is my first six home brews upgrading along the way from all extract to a partial mash.

Drinking my first brew. Autumn Amber Ale. I'm very happy with the results. Pretty clear and very tasty. Extract brew. Fermented in my temperature controlled freezer. Cold crashed before racking.
