Hey, first post...

I opened the first bottle of my second batch last night: an IPA closely modelled after Papazian's Palalia IPA (but a little higher gravity and dry-hopped w/ cascade).

My first batch (a brown ale) was good but not outstanding. This batch is excellent.

I'm thrilled--I'm definitely hooked.

Welcome. Have you had the realization that you'll never need to buy beer again yet? It's a doozie.

Welcome and congratulations. Doesn't feel amazing to make something so wounderful.
Cheers! J.R.
