Finally had my first home brew! Made an apple crisp ale and cracked my first one open. Heard the nice carb sound which made me freak out as i was thinking it would be flat. Poured it into a glass and it had a nice head. Tasted awesome. I now have a new addiction! Thought I would share. Been lurking in this forum and I appreciate all the insight

Congrats! Good looking beer. Welcome to a whole new way of life (or a different perspective on beer at least)!

That feeling of making your very first delicious beer is so awesomely empowering, isn't it?

That is a pretty beer!

Congrats. Glad it turned out good for you. I love brewing my own and drinking it (even if no one else likes it). My beer actually sucks, but I drink it anyway. I just enjoy the whole process. It truly is an addiction.

Yes, very pretty!

Welcome to the addiction. I was thinking about brewing beer constantly for weeks after I opened my first one.

i remember popping the first cap on my first bottle, hearing that sound and seeing that little bit of c02 gas float elegantly around the neck. Damn, i must say i got giddy.

I was making mediocre beer with Mr Beer for so long that now it's just my natural reaction to think that I'm going to be let down by trying the first bottle of beer from a new batch. However, since I moved on to all grain brewing, I have always been pleasantly surprised by the first sip.

Congrats. And they'll just get better from there. At least, usually. Either way, now you're hooked and you know it
