Default First day of my first beer

Well, I just finished up cleaning after making my first batch. I made up the Caribou Slobber extract kit from NB. It was pretty simple (I like simple) and now I know I have the bug! Can't wait to try it out in a few weeks.

That was one of my first too. Great after a month in the bottle.

My first 5 gal batch too. The only thing I did different was add a lb of light brown sugar at flame out. Give the beer the proper aging time and you won't be disappointed. I keep coming back to this brew...it's definitely one of my favs. You're gonna like it!

It's awesome! There's so much activity going on with it. It actually blew the bung off last night, luckily i heard it and put a blowoff tube in right away. I have it fermenting in about 68-69 degrees. Can't wait.

Just took a hydrometer reading. It's sitting at about 1.019 after 8 days.
