It's only been a week in the bottle, but my first batch has turned out even better than I expected. I popped open a bottle after chilling for about 2 hours and I have to say, it's one of the best beers I have ever had. That may just just be because it's my beer, but still, it's an awesome feeling. I can't wait to see how well it does after a few more weeks in the bottle. Just thought I would share, had to tell somebody, hehe.

Sweet. That's encouraging to be able to drink such green beer and say that. Kudos, it will only get even better in time most likely.

Not only that, but it's going to be even better in a couple weeks when it's properly bottle conditioned! Feels good doesn't it; to know that you were able to make in your kitchen something that's a thousand times better than most anything you can buy at the store (and less expensive too?)

I agree. I think we are always a little biased towards our own beers.

Tried my second batch, called Silly Susan's Coffee Stout, after only a week in the bottle and it IS THE BEST COFFEE STOUT I HAVE EVER TRIED.


In several weeks I am going to have my friends try it because I will admit the slight possibility of bias.

Yeah, I was very surprised. It even maintained a decent for a little bit. Thanks for the kudos.

If you include the cost for all the equipment it wasn't cheaper, but I consider the experience of brewing and joining the obsession much more valuable than any cost I may incur.

And we deserve to be. We put a lot into brewing, so whether a beer turns out good or bad, it's ours and we should be proud of it.

Wait until your friends try it, that's a better feeling than drinking it yourself...almost haha.

Congrats on the first brew! Put a sixer aside and forget about it for at least 3 months, then try it.
