Well my first batch in about 10 years at least. Red Ale from a Williams Brew Kit. Added a pound of light brown sugar, I guess just to make it my own. OG 1.052, final at 1.018. Maybe my only mistake was almost running out of bottles. I will see what Red Dawn Ale taste like in a few weeeks!

I did look over the bottling tips before I started and it helped alot. I bottled a few batches about 10 years ago, but moved right after that and did not start back. Went well this time. I put pics in my profile, but not sure how to put them in a post yet. Will keep you posted.

Drank one today and it was very sweet. I did add a pound of light brown sugar to the boil. I think it will get better as it ages.
