Ditto for me, will go more wheat DME this time, may steep some grains to keep it from being all-extract, first brew didn't quite have the flavor I was after.

Also considering doing a batch tomorrow - got an Irish pub draught ale kit from Northern Brewer along with some extra 1 lb bags of specialty grains, just to have some stuff to tinker with. If anyone has tried this NB kit please let me know if I should leave it alone or ok to tinker.

Primary - California Common -finally!
Secondary - nothing, back after year plus hiatus
Keg carbing & conditioning - nada
Drinking - store bought: Loose Cannon IPA, Wachusett IPA.
On deck: Trying to decide (beer); wine kit likely (red wine)

I'm brewing my third batch ever, and my first mini-mash. I'm using Ed Wort's Haus Ale recipe, with a minor substitution for to make it a partial mash instead of all grain.

I'm excited!

AHS FatTire, just like the OP. I'm also enjoying a wheat that's been in the bottle for a couple weeks, it's getting very good!

Before Is tarted brewing I always disliked flat and warm beer.. now I'm like pavlov's dog, I start to salivate when I get a whiff of wort boiling or a swig of flat/warm beer... I know what's coming! lol :P

My FatTire isn't doing so well at the moment though, I'm watching it like a hawk infact. It's blowing out and it ain't pretty. :-(

The Pete's Wicked clone is done and I had no AG problems!!!!

I actually ended up with too much wort, I dumped about 1/2 a gallon. Is that what most people do with leftover wort? I don't have a growler or anything like that for a mini-batch.
