Congratulations on making it through your first brew. You'll know what to look for with the boil overs the next time.

Most likely unless you did something crazy, you'll be seeing bubbles in the next day.

Good luck and start planning brew #2!

Congrats on numero uno!

Spend as much time as you can on this forum between now and
your next brew day. Trust me!

I'm only a few batches in, but with each one the process only
become easier and more fun.
