Well, I just tasted my first homebrew. Sure it's a Mr. Beer brew. Sure it's only bottle conditioned a week. But I love it. I am pleased. No head? Who cares. Delicious.

This is my week 1 (bottle conditioned) "surveillance beer" (per Justibone).

Thanks to everyone who's helped me out. I can tell that in 1 years time, I'll have way more equipment than this Mr. Beer, but it's hard to imagine anything tasting sweeter than this.

This is 1 can of the Mr. Beer Bewitched Red Ale LME, replaced the booster with 1lb light DME. Fermented almost 2 months (life got in the way), and bottled 1 week, not even 24 hours in the fridge, and I couldn't help myself. I can't way to try this at week 2 and week 3.

Congrats on a brew well done! I did the same thing, trying one after a week in the bottle. It was a brewers best IPA. I was surprised it had decent carbonation. It's been two weeks now and tastes even better and has pretty good head retention.

Awesome! I didn't go with a kit but just a basic recipe. Mine is at 10 days in primary. Probably going to bottle after 14-17 days then condition for a week to 10 days. Its so hard to wait. I checked the gravity again today to make sure it was done fermenting and it tastes great (even if its warm and flat). Nothing better than a beer you made yourself. Enjoy.

My wife bought me a mr beer for x mas when we were dating. I didn't have any luck with it. Of course I used bakers yeast and table sugar or something totally goofy. Anyhoo ff 12 years and brewing consumes much of my open thought. Welcome to you all. Go 5 or 10 gal as soon as you can. It all only gets better this is a great site. Enjoy!! Some if you will hit the point where you only drink beer you made. Cheers

Congratulations!

My first beer should be ready to drink in less than 2 weeks (bottle conditioning now). It must feel good, I can't wait to taste mine!
