That's my blowoff tube. Pretty active fermentation on this one and it's my first time using a carboy.

Blowoff tube indeed! I used my first better bottle on my last brew and definitely needed a blowoff.

And the last time I brewed this one I had a 6 inch krausen (luckily it was in a 7.5 gallon bucket.)

Well, I had the recipe and was all set to go on this. I picked up my home brew equipment and then headed to the home brew store. When I got there the guy told me I couldn't do this because it is whole grain and I needed more advanced equipment like and outdoor burner and larger kettle. So he sold me some extract stuff. I guess I will try my first ever batch of beer with the extract.

I feel like he made it a little more complicated than it had to be. You know, when people try to get all technical just to show off. I thought for sure I could make a concentrated mash with this but I guess not. Hopefully the extract hef tastes good.

There's absolutely nothing wrong with extract. You can make some great beer that way.

What were you planning on doing? Brew in a Bag?

@djshakes - you can definitely make great extract beer and you can also do an all grain version on your stovetop if you pick up an 8 gallon (or larger) kettle. Look up "Deathbrewer's Stovetop All Grain" and you'll find a good method. I used this until I recently built a mash tun and purchased a propane burner.

This is pretty tasty. It used 1056 and 2.5 oz of orange zest. I wish I would've "dry hopped" with more zest for a pronounced aroma. The orange flavor is subtle, which is good. My wife said it reminded her of Blue Moon. This is only day two in the keg so it should be even better in a few days.
