Default from one noob to all other noobs



As a noob I AM now a firm believer of RDWHAHB!!!! The mistakes that I made on brew day( not sure if i followed the directions right) and bottling day (I had tiny bubbles in my bottling wand)were many, and I thought that i ruined my belgian ale for sure. However today I decided to give my first brew another try. After being bottled at 70 deg for an eternity (32 DAYS)!!!! I cracked one open and took a drink. It was a thing of beauty carbonation and flavor!! So to all the noobs reading today listen to the pros, and RDWHAHB.

Cheers to everyone here!

Grats Slomo.... I'm glad to hear your beer is near and dear, elicits no fear, and doesn't taste queer!

My Belgian is just now 23 days in the bottle and sadly half of it is gone due to impatient taste testing That's one of the downsides to bottling in Bombers! I'm now thoroughly convinced that my first ever homebrew is the BEST and have promised myself not to open another bottle (now that the Hefeweizen is ready )for another month!!!

Cheers and HBT Rocks!!!!!!

Fair enough, she hasn't done her homework.

Google, urbanductionary.com, or even the search feature here on this site. Any of those resources will answer your question. You'll get it, along with other common acryonyms like SWMBO.

Kanpai!
