I finally took the plunge and decided to do my first extract/grain brew. I've done 4 coopers kits so far, they turned out ok, but I wanted a bigger challenge and thought now was a good time.
It took a little longer than expected - 10pm to 2am, but I had a lot of fun and I am happy with how the first stages turned out.
I made a honey pale ale
Plus, I had to do another batch of apfelwein, my first batch isn't done yet, but I had to do another:
nice... ive never made apfelwein whats it taste like? hard cider? It seems that EVERYONE makes it... any threads as to how to make it?
I've never tasted it before, but I can just tell it's gonna be good so I made another batch before the first one finishes. The stories about it are priceless too.
