So far I want to say that I'm brand new to Home brewing. I've read a couple of books and have lurked on many websites before I started. I'm currently two brews into my brewing career... and I couldn't be more excited and thrilled with what I've been able to accomplish with very little knowledge.
My first batch was a complete extract with no hops or anything. Easy to do and it turned out AWESOME. It was a brown ale. It fermented in about 3 days. I let it sit for about a week, bottled it and a few days later started enjoying my first homebrew!!!!
Second batch in I went with a Belgian triple ale recipe, part grain, part extract, and within 24 hrs of pitching the yeast my brew went crazy!!!! it was fermenting so fast it blew the airlock off the top of my fermenting bucket!!! It reached its FG in 4 days! I let it sit and settle for a few, and then bottled it and its taste awesome!
Just wanted to let you guys know I've been lurking around here for a while reading posts etc.... Thanks for all the indirect help. I can see this is going to be a life long passion for me. I like drinking a good beer, and nothing taste better than something I created myself...
