Default First Home Brew

Cracked my very first homebrew today. It was brewed 2 weeks ago, bottled one week ago. Turned out pretty well for the first try, it was a "blonde pale ale" from homebrewers outpost that came in a kit my wife bought me for Valentines day.



Brewed my second batch today, an American IPA from Williams Brewing.

It was pretty good, had a little bit of a bittery aftertaste but I assume that will mellow after a few more weeks in the bottle.

Looks great. It will taste even better in several weeks as it ages.

Congrats.

Oh...were you talking about the beer?

Nice job on your first. Nice going on getting your second underway.

Now...what's your third batch going to be?

I've got a different IPA kit from Williams that I might do next weekend if I buy or borrow another fermenting bucket. I've been on a serious IPA kick lately so hopefully these 2 kits will be good.
