I brewed my first batch this weekend, it's a Rainbow Red Ale Clone. 10 Gallons Total, 4.5 in a 5gal Sanke, and 5.5gal in an 8gal Sanke to ferment. I rehydrated my Safale S-04 yeast and pitched, then added the appropriate amount of FermcapS to prevent a Beersplosion. I came home from work the next day and while it may not be the worst you've seen, I'm certainly glad I'm fermenting in the basement next to the sump pump!
I think I'm really going to like this hobby!
