Batches Brew Official Photo Thread!!!
Rather than pollute this forum with a hundred threads every time I take a few pictures, I decided I'd consolidate them into one thread and that thread is here.

Thanks for indulging my urge to share.

Tonight, after three long weeks, I finally busted open a 22 of my finest brown ale. This is my first home brew.


With all the first brew style mistakes, it actually came out quite good. It's a little strong because I accidentally shorted the what should have been a 5 gallon batch by a gallon. I have no idea the ABV but it should be up there.

Cheers to the board for all the help and to show my appreciation I just upgraded my account. Happy drinking. :mug:

As a fellow Angelino, I dig the label! :D

Ditto. What did you use to create the label?

Thanks. I appreciate it.

I used Photoshop and Illustrator since I'm a first year graphic design student at S.M.C. I printed it to semigloss photo paper. It's inkjet so I sprayed it with an acrylic coating to stop the smearing and pasted it on with spray mount.

The quake happened a day into fermentation so I gave it the name. The seismic waves are from the actual quake, taken from the USGS website.

That's one of the most professional looking labels I've ever seen.

Very, very well done batches.
