Default Here are some pics of my first brew

Hi all, thanks for all the advise you all offered. Everyone was extremely helpful here.

With that said, I wanted to share a few pics of my first Brew, a clone of Fuller's ESB ale. I brewed it up two Sundays ago, kept it in the primary for 8 days and moved it to my secondary where I kept it for another 8 days and then dryhopped it (last night).

After the first 8 days it hit FG (I didn't bother taking an OG, but I will for my next brew batch, so I can see how close I am to the kit's recipe).

I couldn't believe how clear it was when I took a sample with my thief. It was pretty tasty too, but a little watery. I've been told with age and carbing, it will fill in with flavor.

Anyway, here are the pics. I'm already thinking of what to do next...

Beautiful color to that ESB, a deep amber with gold highlights. Way to go!
