Since Yooper kept telling people to post pics, thought I would come and share my first brew. A little over carbed, a little too much clove, but overall, not bad. Thanks for your help, everyone

Taste's good. It's a wit that i fermented fairly low, temp-wise, so it's mostly clove. Tastes like eber to me, fiancee says it's really good. Just a bit too fizzy (primed for 5 gallons, only ended up getting 4 racked).

Only problem is that I kept promising people bottles of my first brew, so of the 37 bottles I got out of the first batch, only 7 of them are for me. Whoops.

Never promise people you will give them beer. I have always said "If you wan't one, come over." That way you can regulate what you give out and attempt to keep some for yourself.

It's a beginner mistake. You live and you learn.

Congrats on your first brew.

yeah, figured that out the hard way. Guess I'll just have to keep brewing. Poor me.

at least this way I can call it a christmas present and save a ton of money.
