Default Just bottled first brew tonight!

No real point to this thread-just bottled my first brew tonight-Irish Red Ale from Midwest that came with my kit. After a few minor mistakes, I think the beer came out fairly decent. My FG was 1.012 which is just about dead on according to the guidelines. It's a little hoppy now which i don't mind but i'm hoping with the bottling and aging that it'll get a little sweeter. All in all, despite the amount of work that i put into homebrewing- i enjoy it and can defintely see this turning into a long term thing

Tomorrow i'm gonna brew up some Amarillo IPA which i'm pretty psyched for. I love those hops and can't wait to see how this one comes out!

yeah there's a few things out there (probably in skymall lol) that supposedly age wine rapidly. Like you pour it into a glass and then put this contraption into it and in a few minutes it's aged 5 years!

Marrying and 5 years of age should never be in the same sentence. Except in Salt Lake City

congrats! Just brewed my first batch today as well - an extra pale ale with a gravity of 1.042 and the kit I used said it was 1.045 so I guess I am off to a good start.

Finally bottled my dunkelweizen after 2 months in secondary. We'll see how she turns out!!!
FYI, I used about 3/4 cup priming sugar with 2 cups of water and boiled for 15 mins before racking contents of secondary to bottling bucket. Does this sound about right?

Crazy, I just bottle my first brew. Also the Irish Red Ale that came with the Midwest kit.
