Well my first ever batch is under way. Just waiting for the water to boil. Now I know I need to get the new gas stove vs this glass top haha. Not sure why the guy before me did this but he put the thermometer on the pot instead of the bucket good thing I have the external one. Oh well will have to get another one probably from a pet store!

Good luck. Just stick to the directions and it is pretty hard to screw up. You will learn more with each batch trust me.

Oh yeah. Been to a t so far started about and hour ago sanitizing and what not. Already made a non crucial but would have been a time saver mistake. Did not put the lid on the pot to hold in the heat so could not figure why taking so long. Just realized and threw it on. Oh well water was at 150 right after initial post according to my thermometer.

Well all done and even cleaned up. The OG was 1.481.50but from what I am reading I am figuring that should be 1.048-1.050. The 1.4 area said start so I hope i am correct in my assumptions. Oh well guess we shall see in a few weeks.

Oh man hope I did not mess something up. When looking at the yeast package after the fact I noticed it has to re hydrate the yeast for 15 minutes...I did not do this. Am I screwed?
