It is time.....
My brewcloset (downstairs half-bath) is finally staying in the mid-upper 60's. I picked up the last of my ingredients this weekend. Tuesday night SWMBO will be at work all evening. My assistant brewer (daughter) and I will be on our own so...

... my first homebrew will be born.

Ummmm... not tellin' yet.

I'm not doing what I should be doing and skipping the tried and true recipes and kits. I'm starting out with a PM of my own construction. I don't really wanna post my recipe because I don't want anyone to talk me into any changes. I want the first one to be all mine, sink or swim. If it's sink... or even down the sink in the end, then I'll learn from my mistakes.

But in general terms... it'll be a brown ale.

I'm pulling for you! Let us know how it turns out.

ChshreCat 10-11-2008 02:40 AM

I'm sure I'll be talking about it. I have "Is my beer ruined" programmed as a macro on my keyboard just in case. ;)

Well be sure and let us know how it turns out. And then maybe share the recipe :mug:

ChshreCat 10-11-2008 03:33 AM

Definitely. I'll either post it as "Look at this great beer I put together" or as "Look what I screwed up". Either way, I'll post it after tasting.

Have fun, and welcome to the obsession.

It may be helpful to have your plan written out and ingredients measured before starting, but I suspect you're already doing that. If you name the first batch after the kiddo or the SWMBO it may reduce the SWMBO's anger at finding sticky malt extract on the walls of the kitchen when she gets back...

OKAY, waitaminute...waitafreakin minute...

You've been here since August...

You have over 400 posts...

You've kinda been on the radar for awhile...

And you've not brewed yet???????????????????????????????

I commend you on soaking up the knowlege around here for awhile before diving in...

But if you use that macro......

I'm gonna shoot you :D

But you haven't figured out your inaugural brew yet?

It's gotta be something special...it can't be just any old brew.

ChshreCat 10-11-2008 08:45 PM

hehehe Well, as a kid I used to help my dad brew, so I'm not a TOTAL rookie. And I'd have brewed by now, but I have no AC, so I've been waiting for the temps to drop enough to make it easier.

My first one isn't going to be anything too difficult. But it'll be my own construction so it WILL be special. To me at least. :)
