Well I'll have to admit my first two attempts at homebrewing came out pretty good. I was impressed. Of course, I made sure I did everything the right way without cutting any corners, keeping particular attention to sanitation. I did a clone of Real Ale's Fireman's 4 Blonde Ale:
and a clone of Full Sail Pale Ale:
Bottled all of them. Used a temp controller for fermentation in a fridge set at 63 +- 3 degrees. Fireman's is almost gone and now we are working our way through the Full Sail.
Both produced good heads, seemed to be a tad bit over carbonated, and both had a similar aftertaste that I can't quite describe. Not sure if that was from doing an extract or what, but I am going all grain from now on, and kegging, so that should change things up. Anyways, thanks to this forum, it's been a great resource!
