    And now the moment you've all been waiting for....The beer is done. However, I messed up adding
    the priming starches to the batch and forgot to give the beer a little stir to get the starches
    disperse...

    Bottling was a breeze! Wound up with 2 full cases of beer in the bottles, a little less than
    expected but certainly a plentiful amount. Two more weeks...:mug:

    Yes the kit used some steeping grains...1 lb of dry crystal malt I believe. Steeped the grains

    Update on the brew:It has been two weeks since wort has been sitting in fermenter, so I thought

    small amount snu...

    Well I did not boil water prior to brewing in the stockpot, so hopefully any off tastes will be

    in the car...

    Thanks! :tank:Update: Looked at the brew this morning and no signs of fermentation yet. Carboy
    has zero bubbles, it looks completely flat. Hopefully yeast will pick up by this evening. I
    used White La...
