I just wanted to thank everyone for all of the great advice in this forum. Yesterday, I brewed my first batch of American Cream Ale and everything went perfect.
All I can say to new brewers out there is preparation, preparation, preparation. I was rally nervous and probably overdid it, but it made everything go great. Everyhting was very clean and sanitized. . .I had great hotbreak and boil, the water bath worked great, and now my fermenter is bubbling away!!
Thanks again! I will let you all know how it turns out when I bottle and condition!
BTW.. this is way too addictive. I am already thinking of my next batch. . .
