So I brewed my first 5 gallon batch and kegged it a week ago. Hefeweizen extract kit.

I followed the rules religiously as found in Palmer's 'How to brew'. As for force carbonating, I got some help on the forum.

The whole batch is just incredible. Amazing if I say so myself.

I did a full wort boil and cooled with an immersion chiller.

I was just drinking a glass and thought I would share my experience with the board. Thanks for the help guys! I am hooked to say the least.

Since I had my first glass, I have invested in a carboy for secondary fermentation and a capper.

Homebrewing is by far the most fufilling and inebriating hobby I have ever had..
