Default Popped first HB bottle today!

Popped my first HB today, a Tommyknocker Maple Nut Brown Ale clone (extract with specialty grains). Excellent, if I do say so myself. Need to stop by my local craft beer outlet to pick up some original and compare. Might also attend a local HB club meeting to share and get some opinions.

Second brew put away this AM - an Irish Red Ale (another extract with specialty grains). For this one I am going to go without a secondary and just primary in the bucket. This time I took some pics of my setup located here.

Congrats man! BTW, nice setup you have there. It looks like you are ready to get down with some All Grain soon with that nice keggle.

As for the setup, I need a sign to say Beer/Deer Processing Station. Now that deer season is here in Virgina (bow), I hope to use my garage and kitchen setup for butchering.

Kick ass! It's a great feeling, isn't it?

Brew beer, smoke venison. Lather, rinse, repeat.
