Default The results are in for my first AG

On brew day for my very first AG batch, I thought everything went horribly. Less than 50% efficiency, so I though all was last. But I finished the brew and today got to taste Mein Hefe and I've got to say, it's really good. It's only 3.1% ABV, so I can drink it all day and not feel a thing Just a little encouragement for those who think their brew went to ****, it'll all turn out good in the end.

good work (seriously). Review your recipe and proceedure, ask help here where needed, and your process and beer will improve.

Congrats!! Sometimes it takes a few batches to get in a groove and get the numbers dialed in. But a 3.1% session beer is fine just the same.

Thanks guys. I am going to wait until I have the equipment to do 6-7 gallon boils before I do another all-grain batch, but damn it was fun. Can't wait to do it again.
