  • Going to brew with extract kits for awhile, then eventually move to partial-mash and then all-grain, weaning myself off kits at some point during the process. I'd love to brew an IPA next, but that seems a bit out of my league. An American Pale Ale seems doable though, so that's probably next. After that, I'd love to make a good Stout. Currently, I'm brewing a rather generic light ale that came with my starter kit. :P

    Are you actually waiting until they finish and then pouring them into a glass? A large volume
    in a glass carboy will always look darker than the beer appears in a drinking glass.
