    Purchased the basic starter kit. Decided to do an extract brown ale to start. Waiting a week or two til I will be in town to rack to secondary. Still need to purchase a secondary fermenter and hops. Can't wait to get started!

    Just my thoughts. Watch it in the carboy for a while. If nothing funky grows on or in it, Keg
    it! Worst case scenario, it got infected. Maybe some off flavors or something. It seems
    fermentation is so...
