I bottled my first batch 7 days ago, and well, I couldn't wait. Opened one up and WOW!!! The carbination was perfect, the color spectacular, and the taste was beyond description. Some much for commercial beers, I'm hooked. Now it's time for the second batch.





Primary: none
Secondary: none
Bottled: Northern Nut Brown

Negatory...you're already behind schedule! Better get two batches going.

I'm putting my first batch in the secondary tomorrow. I hope that I have the success you did!

last batch review(Schwheat (wheat))

Appear: 3.5/5.
Mouthfeel: 3.5/5
Carb/Head: 3/5
Taste: 2.5/5
Overall: 3/5

An overall decent beer but it has too much of a banana character, I think it's because of fermenting at too high of a temp. Tasted better as it aged, but far from perfect.

Excellent! Welcome to the addiction.

It really is amazing how relatively easy it is to brew excellent-tasting beer.

Texas,
Good for you...it's damn tough to wait 3 weeks for bottles to carbonate, ain't it?
