Default Just pulled my first pint!

Well I just pulled my first pint, a AHS Bavarian Hefe, thats been in the keg for 6 days so far. I originally put the regulator at 20psi for 2 days, then turned it down to 12psi when I kegged the stout. This Hefe is also my first brewed beer, and I went with the Mini-mash kit from AHS. It turned out FANTASTIC! It still needs to carb up a bit more, but should be perfect in about another week, I just wanted to check out the progress, and I am happy. PROST!

Thanks, I fell into most of it actually. The first equipment I bought was 2 corny kegs for next to nothing, then found a 5 gallon carboy in my parents basement. My friend gave me another 5 gallon carboy, and I found the 3 7 gallon carboy on craigslist for $15 a peice.

I bought a 2 keg kit from kegconnection to round out the "brewery" and am trying to start a bit of a pipeline. If they all go as well as this round, I'll be in good shape!

Edit: Actually the first piece of equipment I bought was John Palmer's "How to Brew". I highly recommend this to anyone!

Congrats on your first few Brews Coming out. Doesn't your Home Brewed Beer taste better then anything you have ever had?


As nfar as Carbing your beer in the Keg, here's what I do. I call it the Mike McDowell (spell check) method. I got it from The Brewing Network's "The Session" Brew Cast. I set my Regulator at 30 PSI for 48 Hours, then I crank her down to 15 PSI for 24 hours. More times then not, I have Carbed Beer ready for drinking. I fine tune my Carbonation from their with the style in mind. Nice part about this method is that you have Carbed beer in 3 days.
