Default My first batch

I just racked out to secondary and here's a couple pictures of my Autumn Amber Ale. I used the Autumn Amber Ale kit from Midwest Supplies. SG at the time of racking was dead nuts 1.012. Three more weeks or so and I'll be tasting. It smells delicious! Just hope my thorough washing of the gear was thorough enough!

Should note that the bucket was primary and the carboy is secondary.

That's what I've heard! Mid January can't come soon enough!

Looks healthy! That is one of my favorites from Midwest, which yeast did you go with?

Since it was my first and I didn't know any better, I just went with the generic dry yeast. I was fairly disappointed when I went to my LHBS and saw all of the options that I had.

Ha, can't blame ya for that. I have done this kit five times, twice with dry and three times with the Wyeast. The difference in taste is very noticeable, always will order it with the liquid yeast from now on. Don't get me wrong, it is great with the dry yeast, but more so with the Wyeast. Welcome to the addiction, hope SWMBO is understanding!

She has been nothing but an angel but I haven't exactly been "transparent" with the cost...She would still be supportive but probably less so.
