I've got my very first 5 gal batch, Northern Brewer saison de noel in my glass secondary and Carribou Slobber in my primary bucket.

I've also got a small batch of hard lemonade in my old Mr. Beer with a modified recipe found here. Something special for SWMBO hopefully.

Looks like we're on the same page! These are my first 5 gal batches. My 1st was a Mr. Beer and after that I got hooked!

On the left is a maple syrup dark ale, will be adding extra grade B syrup in the next few days and cold crashing once fermentation begins to retain more aroma from the syrup. On the right is a two day old cream stout that I'm attempting a bourbon barrel stout clone from BBC.

Brewed another batch tonight. Did a Honey Hefeweizen that will get 2.5 pounds of blueberries in a few weeks.

It's a Midwest supplies recipe. It's an extract kit with specialty grains. It comes with a small bottle of grade A syrup that you add to the boil. When I racked to secondary an tasted a sample the fermentation had taken most of the maple taste and aroma out. So last night I took another small bottle of grade B and added it to the keg before I racked it. Then cold crashed it so I wouldn't fire up another fermentation and save some of the aroma. First sample this morning was great, I'll keep you posted once its sat for a week or so and then carbonated.

Im surprised they included Grade A with that kit... not that anything is wrong with any grade of pure maple syrup.. but Grade A is a lighter flavor profile than the grade B....

Keep me posted for sure.

as I get better at brewing ( still only have like 10 brews under my belt in yr 1 of home brewing) I plan on leaning towards a lot of the maple beers since I have the source for the maple. Plus I just love the maple flavor.

This is my second batch ever so I'm stepping out on a limb a little bit here, but another sample this morning after all the syrup had a chance to dissolve into the beer and it was really good.
