all i've got to say is holy crap!!!! this has got to be the best beer i've ever brewed!!!!!!!!! i know, i know i opened it like 3 and a half weeks early but i couldn't help it!!!!! i has great nose. the head isn't that great but i can live with that. it tastes like SN pale ales but more hops! i'm in heaven here! i'm just hoping i can keep myself from it until its ripe!!! i'm drinking it at room temp and i'm telling you its great!!! i don't think i'll even put this one in the fridge! thats how darn good it is!!! its the northern brewer kit, three hearted ale. i think i'll dive into a pint and lose myself!!

2.5 gal cantalope mead

I love it when a plan comes together. Welcome back to brewing. I'm glad it tastes great.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

I totally understand your enthusiasm. I just racked my America $&#* Yeah Brown Ale to Secondary, and I took a hydrometer reading and a sample. It was just about the most amazing thing I've ever tasted, and it was just a recipe thrown together from some left over malts and what little we can get from our LHBS. By the time it's ready to drink, I think I will have to give myself a little hoorah for making something so sublime. As long as I don't screw something up in the bottling process. Since I tend to drink while I do anything Homebrew related, I'm sure it's bound to happen someday.

BTW, congrats man. Nothing beats the sense of accomplishment you get when you crack a homebrew.
Up next: Big Brew Off competition between me and Kaptain Karma as one team, and my two roommates as another--We'll be brewing Pale Ales with specifications on malts, hops, and total yeild to see who's version is better (and to end up with ten total gallons of great beer).
Also up soon: Belgian Dubbel
Primary: Grampa's Woodshed Apple Smoked Porter
Secondary: Zombiefoot California Common, Chocolate Strong Porter
Drinking: Seamus O'Drunkagan Irish Red, Humble Pie Imperial Stout, Capricorn IPA

Well, I can think of one thing, but the older I get the more I agree with you!

My greatest sense on accomplishment (in beers) happened last spring at a Brew Crew meeting. Someone's SO, who hates craft beer, snarfed down a pint of my English Mild!

I think I'll go do some QA on the Roque Mocha Porter clone.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
