Default Tested my first homebrew today

"Tested" my first home brew beer today, after just 1 week to carbonate and condition in the bottle. It's not supposed to be fully ready for another couple of weeks yet, but I am very much pleasantly surprised. Good carbonation, head retention, and mellow flavor. Really happy about this. I made beer!

Thanks to everyone on here who has commented and provided advice in the couple of threads I've started. I feel like I've just begun a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Nice looking beer! Great job. What kind of beer is it?

Not bad.

Makes me want to crack one open right now. I think you're off to a great start.

Make sure you save a couple to drink at 6-8 weeks in bottles. To me that seems like the sweet spot, the difference between the one you drank now and then will amaze you.
