First AG Brew Day - Bee Cave Haus Pale Ale
So, yesterday I did my fist all grain brew...and to my surprise everything went fairly well. I have to again thank all the experienced members who have contributed to this site; I've learned a great deal and knew what to expect through this whole process. Anyways on to the pictures!

I like the DYI water filter system!

Looks like things went perfect. I love the HPA, busted my AG cherry on it as well.

Yeah, that water filter works great...and no buying water from the store :). I felt everything went well, but I'd like to boost my efficiency somehow. If I want to do bigger beers, I'll need to figure that out or buy a bigger cooler!
