My first AG went on yesterday. I enjoyed it more than using that sticky, extract mess. I was happy to use all the new toys I made too. Hope your brew turns out well!

That's usually mine too-- I'm still designing my brewstand-- but hopefully when that is done, i'll be able to get it closer to 4.

This is my one week anniversary for my first AG brew. I did it solo and it took six hours. I started at 4:00 and finished at 10:00. Now I am in a mad scramble trying to get my Kegerator set up. Hope it turns out well and you don't miss your baseball game.

Stop scrambling you have a good 5 weeks before you are drinking that first batch. RDWHABMC at least for the next month or so.

Starting the boil now and cleaing all the grain out of my mash tun (thats a pain). I already like AG better. The smell is so much fresher and cleaner...the smell is probaly my favorite part. And just sitting outside and readin "the joy of homebrewing" is a great feeling. I can't wait til fall when its 65 degrees and im doing this

I enjoy the aroma also. Driving home from the LHBS with the grain is the best auto air freshener ever. During the mash I have to keep leaning over and taking a good wiff
