Looks like I'm going to brew me a gallon of beer. After over a year of tinkering with JAOM and Apfelwein and thinking about how maybe someday I might brew some beer, my lovely wife forced my hand.

Sure, its a gallon Brooklyn Brew Shop kit. But its a start right?

Wish me luck.

Wait--you've never brewed beer before Creamy? That's shocking--I don't know why but I assumed you were an old-time brewer like some of the others on here...I pictured you sitting with Revvy on cheap lawn chairs in flip-flops, watching a kettle bubble happily.

OK, so maybe I've got mental images of the people on this site...

At any rate, welcome to the fun!

To be thought of in the same light as Revvy is a huge compliment. Maybe someday I can claim to be like him as a brewer, and I hope I am thought to be like him in quality of sense of humor currently .

Geez, bubbles are different! Breadyeast kind of makes a little raft of bubbles at the top and every so often a big one rises to the top. This ale yeast looks like a full on riot! I could hear the blow-off tube from the bedroom!

Yeah, I'm excited.

Beer was bottled and primed (poorly Im sure) and is sitting in my cabinet for the next two weeks. Fingers crossed.
