Re: the ingredients. Good eye! Yes, the photo only shows about half of the total grain I used. There is another pound of base grain in a zip-top bag, but after pouring the first bag into that bowl I got a cloud full of malt dust in my eyes, so I decided to forgo pouring the second bag into the bowl.

Love it! It sounds like your fermentation temperature should be under control.

Next up start planing your brew room. Will it be electric or gas? 5 gallons, 10 gallons or even bigger?

Not horrifed, but rather impressed! Most noobs think like they are building a nuclear reactor, but it's only beer...looks like you are doing great...keep up the nice work!

I am thinking about my next batch indeed! But I want to be patient and make sure this batch turns out okay before getting too backed up with fermenters, bottles, etc.

Update: 17 days later, the beer has cleared up quite nicely! Hard to tell from the photo though. Should be bottling later tonight...

Wonderful. Sounds like it's time to add a few pieces of equipment to scale things up a bit. Wouldn't it be lovely to have 3 or 5 times as much beer with the same amount of time invested?

I'll quickly step in here and say that some brewers like small batches for various reasons, so no pressure to step up if you're happy with your current yield!
But yeah, 'beer for time' bigger batches are more economical.
