hi again all. well about 10 days ago i brewed my first beer, an american wheat, and i cant say i didnt rush everything, i bottled it after 6 days, and i just opened my first bottle 2 days after bottling, and yknow what?

ITS AWSOME!! even being as green as it is I have to say its better than most of the swill ive been buying for far far too long. nice citrus note, reminds me of hoegarden without the coriander, great even with the little fiz its got from 2 days in the bottle.

tommarow i start my first partial mash and im now totally psyched.

fyi heres my recipe i made for tomarrows brew

Amber cream ale

1.5 lbs homminy grits
3.25 lbs amber LME
3 lbs pilsner malt
1 oz palisade hops (7.4% alpha 8.4% beta)

hopefully ill be using the washed yeast from my first beer, if i did it right, im an ambitious sonuvagun aint i?

any comments on the recipe greatly appreciated

Yeah, you're right about being impatient. Bottling in 6 days has to be some sort of record.

hey it stopped most of the bubling after 2 and the next 4 days the sg didnt dropped less than 1, i may get bottle bombs, but hey that makes for a funny story, plus ive got my 2 cases stored in garbage bags just in case.

hate to say it but this may be gone before it even gets a full 2 weeks in the bottle sept for the 6pack im putting in long term storage.

So long as your bottles from your first batch don't start assploding, you'll at least have those to drink while you give your next batch the time it deserves. heheh

You picked the right style. Wheats can be consumed early and the 'green' just blends in.
