I just cracked into my first beer, and it's really good. A brewhouse octoberfest kit. It was a lot of work (mostly caused by the fact that I'm a newb, and almost all my gear is second hand aka dirty!), and it was from a brewhouse kit (hard to screw up), but it's my first, and I'm proud. The last 3 weeks have been brutal, but it was worth it.
I just bottled a batch of graff last night, and I snuck a little sample before I primed it. If it turns out as good as I think it's going to, it's going to be another hard 3 week wait.
I've got an all grain on deck, probably to be brewed over the xmas break. This is an addicting hobby!
Xmas is going to be awesome this year - santa brought beer!
