It gets easier every time man. And then you start to boil things. Then you start to grow hops. Then you start to hunt for barley...

Congats on the first brew. Once you do a few, you'll get the organization thing down.

when siphoning time comes you'll be happy you have bucket (if it is spigoted, that is...)

The bubbling has dramatically slowed this morning... I hope everything is ok...

hey Jester. I'm in the same boat. I started my first brew on the 19th. Looks like the same day as you. I'm doing LME (liquid malt extract). Bock style ale. Still bubbling nicely for me. From what I've read, it is normal for the CO2 release to stop within a few days.

Good luck!

I went and bought an "Auto Siphon" which has a racking cane built in. Man, what a difference. No more playing with that darn hose!
