Started slow with a brewers best IPA kit. Used us05 yeast then dry hopped with 1oz centennial for a week. This is first one after a week in bottle day in fridge. Lots of foam not tastes great.

Thanks. Don't know how to edit from my iPhone. I even screws up and posted twice. I already have #2 a blue moon clone in bottles then a Belgian ale in fermentor and just got an order from NB today for my next two. Obsession is correct.

Nice.

I 5 batches in the bottle, an Inkeeper English Ale in primary and ingredients for a Scottish 70, Cream Ale and a Belgian Dubble siting on my work bench. I also have 110 lbs of base malt sitting in my kitchen.........This is all since January 15th of this year.

It's funny how you don't realize how much you miss something till you start doing it again.

I took about 8 years off myself. I jumped in both feet first also. I bought a kegerator and 10 corny kegs. I just got going in February and have done 5 batches. Must. Do. More.

Glassware was from a local Rock Bottom

Totally agree on the need to keep going. Just found out a nephew has an empty corny keg and some co2 so next batch is going in the keg

Also just re-read Revvy's thread on carbonation and realized I need to leave the rest of them for at least 2 more weeks.
