Default My first homebrew

I was worried this pale ale was a bit much since it had over 70 IBUs, but it came out DAMN good.

My fiance got me a full deluxe brew kit for Christmas that included kegging. So I figured I would just build a keezer. I should have calculated the overall cost before I decide to go 4 tap, but now its worth it.

The drip tray is from a place by my house called tomsbrewshop. It was 89.99 but I think i saw it for 79.99 from midwest if you don't live in Denver. Its perfect to hang on a collar and have enough room.
