I am so freakin proud right now...I just cracked open the first bottle after proper conditioning time and OH MY GOD...this beer is freaking amazing!!
I used an all Chinook hop recipe from NB - I was skeptical on the choice of hops, all Chinook? But holy crap is this good. Best beer I have made yet.
My 4th brew (5th in carboy) so I am feeling pretty good about myself right now.
Next up is my first partial mash...

I brewed this one as well about 2 months ago. It is a very good beer. I only have about 15 left ... wish I would have made a double batch of it.

One day you will look back on this moment and realize that this was the day that your hobby started getting really expensive... and really enjoyable.

All-grain brewing is oh so much more involved, but also there is so much more satisfaction in knowing that you produced great beer from raw ingredients.

my first "holee crap, not just drinkable, it's GOOD!" moment happened almost 20 years ago, but I still remember it

Yeah a buddy and myself just popped our first bottles last week and were very surprised as we had made a few mistakes along the way. We have already brewed up another 4 batches with another brew day next week. Needless to say our wives are not that impressed....

Congrats on a great beer That's about how I feel about this hobby too. The first one was drinkable, the next was good, and the rest I have greatly enjoyed.

Congrats, this is exactly how an addiction to homebrewing begins.

I figured I was hooked when I started dreaming about making beer.
