Brew an old ale!I recently bottled my version of the 11-11-11 old ale that is floating around

I am in the middle of building one of these cooler tuns with the 10 gallon cooler from home

that I wasn'...

So, I am just over a week in to fermenting my first brew. I did the Blind Pig clone from
Morebeer. I did a full boil and hit my OG just fine and think I am on track to have a good
