Default It's Awesome!!!!

Just drew a pint from my second batch, an IPA, it is freaking awesome!!!!!

I hadn't brewed in several years, and then only two kit beers, but I sure did this time!
I brewed two batches initially, a day apart. The first was a nut brown and it was decent, although a little sweet. I was waaaay to impatient and tapped the keg about two weeks after racking it to secondary. The IPA done the following day I followed the 1-2-3 (and then some for good measure) method and it was a good decision. The beer is slightly cloudy, not that I mind, and tastes great. I was concerned about force carbing it as I had only bottled before, but the keg was a good decision and investment.
I am psyched. I finished a technical assist visit from "Big Navy" yesterday and all my programs were evaluated as satisfactory, so today is celebration time. Thanks to all who have helped, I appreciate your patience and guidance. I followed the suggestions and was rewarded.

Now if I can only spot my name on the CPO selection list in the next day or two

Thanx again for all of your help folks. You have guided me to some really awesome beer.


BTW: My red is almost ready to go from secondary to keg, and my cherry hefe is still bubbling away, after six days in primary. Aint this a great hobby

Great hobby is right. You probably weren't too early on the Brown. I spent a couple of years at Ballast Point, although I was really out at sea 90% of the time. Making Chief is the Big One.
