So, me and my roommate have been getting to some brewing the past few hours. First, I put together a 3 gallon batch of edwort's apfelwein.
Second, my roommates 5 gallon batch of Cascade Amber Ale. It went ok. There was a slight boil over, but nothing to worry about. The biggest problem with this batch was when putting the top on the brew bucket...the O-ring popped out into the wort (when putting the airlock on). Soooo, you guessed it. He had to reach in and get it (there was no other O-ring, so it was a must have. Other than that it looks good. LHBS said it should resemble Siera Nevada.
Lastly, and at this point I'm fairly druck... I maid my Cahaba River Wheat. Boiled it over a bit, just because I erm...stopped paying attention for a bit. Other than that, went off without a hitch.
All in all, a good brew night. Being fairly new to brewing beer, I'm pretty excited. Think my roommates brew will be ok since he put his arm in the wort? (he ran it under hot water before putting it in.)
