OK, I'm really going to get addicted to this Brewmeister epidemic... I'm loving this already.

First Brew: Pumpkin Ale ( I know, I should have read everything on this board which stated in the most simplest form, DON'T DO IT, but I did it, and it turned out drinkable, but not stella... no pun intended..

Second Brew: I've shown... Brown Ale

Third Brew: Hefe Weizen .. as a young 19 year old, I was sent to Germany after the first Gulf War, and I have to tell you, drinking this tonight, immediately took me back to 1992 in Germany's great watering holes.. nice banana notes, crisp finish, slight clove on the finish, I love it.... How do all of you stay sober during the day? All I want to do is brew now???

Planning: Cream Ale, Winter Ale, Porter, Kolsch, American IPA, Stout
Primary: Amber Ale
Secondary #1: Empty
Secondary #2: Brown Ale
Conditioning: Bavarian Hefe
Kegged: None

Nothing better than a perfectly brewed Hefe on a hot summer day. Try fermenting the beer at 62F next time. It seems like it would be too cool for a Hefe, but it makes a very balanced, crisp beer.

Kegged: Belgian Dark Strong (8.9%abv)

Fermenting: Arrogant Bastard Clone, BCS Dry stout

Planned: Rye IPA, ESB, Oatmeal Pale Ale, Rye Amber
