It's a Brewers Best IPA kit. My OG & FG are off from the instructions, but I've read enough on this forum to just relax.

I don't have any questions, I just wanted to share my excitement. I've ordered a Stout kit for round 2 and this is going to be a tough 3 weeks waiting for my IPA to carbonate.

Oh no no no. You've done it all wrong! You need to send all of that to me for proper disposal!!

Congrats on your first batch!! Be patient with it. Your last bottle will be the best!

Here's a picture of my fermenter when I first filled it up three weeks ago:

Recently I've spent hours combing through conflicting information, trying to get answers to seemingly simple questions like 'Should i use a secondary?', but what I've learned is that there isn't really right and wrong ways, just different ways.

It is an obsession. Soon you will have two or three glass carboys, a gigantic cooler for mashing, a twisted, coiled copper tube for cooling your wort, an enormous brewpot, and a 230,000 btu propane burner...

Then, there is that Blichmann equipment...

And we all await word of the first "hiss" of the very first bottle being opened, poured into a glass, and THOROUGHLY enjoyed by the brewer. Keep us posted!

i'm with you. i bottled my first batch a week ago today. (put one bottle in the fridge last night, so i can sample tonight...but i'm going to make myself be patient for another two weeks with the rest)

i've spent hours combing through this forum, reading up on stuff...most of which is still greek to me but i'm already obsessed. my second batch is in primary right now, and i can't wait to figure out what i'm doing for round three.
