  • Lord of the Rings. Yes, I'm a nerd.
  • First brew was an all extract kit. It was an American Wheat Ale. I was surprised at how well it turned out, as was my family. Needless to say, I'm enjoying a surge of popularity within my family at the moment!

    Second was a partial mash, also from a kit. This time I went with a Nut Brown Ale. Also got good reviews from the family and some friends. Reminded me of Abita Turbodog.

    I've since brewed a couple from recipes instead of kits. I may try to tackle all grain once finances allow.
  • I would like to move up to all grain brewing before too long. I'm a fan of barleywines like Brooklyn Brewery's Monster Ale, so I think I'll try that soon.

    I've been homebrewing for a little over a year now, so I definitely remember how it feels
    getting in there and doing that first brew.Advice 1: Read, read, read. Read every bit of

    Thanks, everyone for your help and advice! I'm ashamed to say I didn't take an OG reading.
    Funny how certain things slip my mind on brewday.I'm sure my forgetfulness has nothing to do
    with my strict p...

    I have this Ikea Probe Thermometer I use to monitor the temperature of my mash. Up until now,
    it has been very accurate. However, this past weekend, I was brewing a partial mash Belgian Wit
    and was ma...

    Congratulations!I haven't made the leap to all grain, myself, but it's great to hear you pulled
    it off! The great thing about homebrewing is that it's its own reward.

    Thanks for the heads up, snailsongs. Once there's no more airlock activity, I'll probably rack
    it again to make sure it's as clean as possible.

    I brewed the "Who's in the Garden" recipe out of Charlie Papazian's The Complete Joy of
    Homebrewing 21 days ago. After 7 days in the Primary, I racked it into the Secondary. Racking
    seems to have "kic...

    Thanks, guys. I've brewed this particular one to give away as Xmas presents, so I'm
    particularly anxious for it to turn out well!On the plus side, it's pretty tasty, even if it's
    flat at the moment!

    I bottled my first non-kit brew (Frank The Tank's Red Dragon Ale) on Saturday.I opened a bottle
    Wednesday night to see if the carbonation had taken. I've done this before with other brews and
    they wer...
