I literally just pulled this first cup from my keg. This is the first kit I have done it was a Dark Chery Stoudt. Thanks to all the advice I got from the boards it came out amazingly. Deep rich coffee notes with a hint of cherry. And somehow i managed to hit the carbonation level right on. Forced carbed with 30psi and 100 shakes then let it sit for an hour an put it on 6psi to give me a carb level of about 2.03 in the Sanyo. Final grave came out to 1.018 its about .02 off but ill get over it, it was my first brew after all. Next week I will be carbing a Raspberry wheat ale. Again thanks for all the help and check out my pics below. This is literally the first drink from the keg!!

UPDATE: HERE ARE THE PICS I PROMISED!! The first 1 is the Dark Cherry Stoudt and the last 3 are the Irish Red Raspberry Ale that is currently carbing in the keg. And if you guys want me to shoot your brews PM me and we can see what we can work out haha.

Looks nice! Congrats. You are now officially hooked.
But that looks like a glass to me, not a cup!

You can get a better head by allowing the first pourings to hit the bottom of the glass in the center.

Other than that it looks good.
