I just started my first brew yesterday and was wondering if anyone could shed some light onto what kind of beer I will get in the end?
3.52 Lbs can of John Bull Amber (LME hopped)
1.4 Lbs can of Alexander's Pale (LME)
1 Lb Munton's Light (DME)
1 Oz Cascade Hop Pellets
11 g Windsor Brewing Yeast
I boiled one gallon of water, added all the malt and the hop pellets and let it boil for 1 hour. I made my yeast starter and took the wort off the heat, I waited 5 minutes and gave the wort a quick ice bath. Then i combined the wort with 4 gallons of somewhat cold water and added the yeast as well. I put my airlock on. I checked it this morning and I sure was happy to see the airlock bubbling. I forgot to take a hydrometer reading when i made the wort, is that bad and should I open it up to take a reading or wait until it is done fermenting?
Any help or advice that anyone could lend on this would be greatly apreciated.
