Right on! Love the midwest kits. I first made the honey porter kit and loved it to the last drop, and tasted better the longer it sat. Since then ive made their cream stout, and the octane (oaked) ipa which i HIGHLY recommend. That octane was a damn tasty beer. Gonna modify it and try making an imperial. Congrats on a successful first batch! Cheers!

Nicely done. Always great to taste what can be done with a few plants and bugs.

Not sure what the proper glassware for a stout is... How's this work?

Glad to see you had a great beer. Mine was an APA with an IBU of around 45-50 if my math is correct and an ABV of 6.5. Next you should buy a keg.

I just popped my first homebrew a week ago, a pumpkin ale. It is great feeling (especially when I found it was actually quite drinkable). I spent so much time in Jan. and Feb. reading all the great info found on this site I just went straight to all grain with a recipe from this site.

Consider yourself hooked in now. First been drank, time to plan out the next 5 or 6 your want to brew :-)

That looks great!

I was just in Warren last week. If I would have known you had such great beer, I would have tried to stop by!

Congrats man! I second whoever said SAISON... quickly has become my favorite style of beer. I am somewhat new as well (~4 months of brewing and about 6 batches) I was wondering why you think you need a wort chiller for bottling? As far as I know you may need to boil a small amount of water to dissolve your priming sugar, but the beer overall should remain at room temp with no cooling necessary. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Cheers, man try the Midwest Saison.
