About 5 weeks ago I decided to pick up a brew kit. I had a couple of weeks off and I was bored, so I thought, why not? I picked up an Amber Ale extract kit for my first brew and I let it sit in the fermentor about 4 weeks. I bottled last weekend, and I couldn't wait any longer to try one, so I threw one in the fridge earlier today. Much to my surprise, it actually tasted quite good! It definitely has some aging to do, but as of right now, I consider it a success! I don't really have a question at this time, except, what to try next? I just thought I would share my success!

Congrats! It just gets better from here. What to try next? Whatever the hell you want, that's what. The possibilities are endless!

Congrats---you may never buy commercial beer again, except when you get low on bottles.
