Tasted it? Or drank some of it? Come on, be honest.

Congrats on your success. It's a great pastime.

OK, I drank a bunch of it. And it's as good or better than what I would have bought at the store.

Welcome to brewing! I've made some pretty complicated beers, but I'll tell you one thing... Cooper's Aus. Bitter and the Aus Draught are both fabulous, trouble free. I've got the lager in secondary right now, as a matter of fact, and I'm looking forward to it.

I didn't ever really believe it when people would tell me that. I thought it would be interesting to make homemade beer. I figured it would turn out to be kind of thick, cloudy stuff, sort of reminiscent of what you used to get at brewpubs when they first came out. Man, was I ever surprised to find out how good my very first batch tasted. I still like commercial beers, but to me the homebrew just tastes fresher and better.


P.S. You gotta force yourself to save some. If you like your beer now, you will REALLY like it about six weeks from now.
