Default Tasted my first brew last night...

AND WOW! It was great!

I had a good friend over for the 1st tasting. He himself had previously brewed using Mr. Beer and had terrible results (bleeding rectum, anyone?). Needless to say, he was excited to try it, but was somewhat skeptical of what my results might be (heck, so was I).

So I grab a couple from the fridge and cross my fingers. I didn't even know if they were carbed or not since everything I bottled in was glass. But I heard a PSST! from both bottles and knew everything had worked.

So we pour and taste...and his reaction was even better than mine. "Holy crap! That's great! I'd PAY for this. I would seriously pick up a 6-pack of this at the grocery every week if I could."

So wow, I'm now hooked for life and my pipeline is beginning to fill.

The best part? After our 2nd bottles He took $10 out of his wallet and put it under his now-empty pint glass. He said it was for future brews because he definitely wants more.

I freaking love this hobby!

Man I need to hang out with your friends, mine don't pay me sh*t.

Congrats on your first brew, glad it was a success. Cheers to many many more.

Yes, send him over here. All my friends who drink beer like that BMC stuff. Oh, except one, but he does his own Homebrewing... Reminds me to remind him about the 6'er he said he'd give me for a copy of that one poster....

I NEED someone to tell me my beer is good.

It was an extract Witbier. It's still slightly watery and the coriander is a hair too strong, but I'm quite sure a little more age will fix that. It was 3 weeks/3 weeks and 2 days in the fridge, so really I couldn't make myself wait any longer before the first samples.

It's a crying shame, ain't it? I've got a friend who went with us to the Flying Saucer bar last night. Over 200 different beers available and he'll only drink Coor's Light.

I made him sample the Victory Prima Pils that was on special and he didn't like it. Very very sad.
