well today being my birthday , I decided to put a couple beers from my first batch (ever) in the fridge last night .. So I could do an early sample today ..

I must say it is pretty good !! There is room for improvement (or maybe the aging will bring out some other flavors ?) The beer seems as though it could use a little more lemon zest and maybe some more hop flavor .. And yes it needs to carb up a bit more .. Its(like I said) the first I have ever brewed ..



Sorry for the not so impressive picture .

Happy Birthday! There's two kinds of homebrewers: those who drank the first batch too soon and liars.

Happy Birthday and congrats!

I think you'll feel that everything you ever brew has room for improvement. Personally, even if I am completely satisfied with a recipe I find myself wondering how it would taste with a different yeast strain or hops or base malt. That is why this is the greatest hobby ever.

Man, my first batch was sooo good. I don't think the smile left my face for a couple hours even after the glass was empty. Way to go!

+1. Everyone says you got to be patient. Screw that on your first batch. Yes it would have tasted better, but who can withstand that kind of excitement?! There will be plenty of batches to be patient with. Congrats and happy brewing.

How many days since bottled? I have sampled three of my first in just under two weeks. Reminds me of a take on an old Gary Larson cartoon; "Patience my ass, I am going to drink something!"

Enjoy and Happy Happy!

haha, My first brew is at 4 weeks in primary and I am bottling this Saturday... I am literally about to crack with anticipation. I've already got 2 more batches in primary to distract myself from worrying about trying the first one. It's beginning to get ridiculous. hydrometer samples are not quite cutting it
