I'd like to thank many of you. I bottled last week i was worried all week that the bottles wouldnt Carb up. Man did it taste great also. I followed REVVY's link on bottling and it was a success. Now to let the bottles sit a few more weeks.
Feeling pretty proud right now.

Wow that looks really good. I made an irish stout for my first recipe and didn't get nearly the head that you did. Congrats. Was this an all-grain or extract recipe?

Nice looking head for only a week in the bottle. I've never opened a bottle after that short of time for fear that it wouldn't have carbed enough and I would end up wasting a bottle.
