Way to go! Glad to read that someone else is having success with their brewing.

So what is it and what's the next one on the brew list?

Be careful! Dont drink it too fast and make sure you have something else in the pipeline (preferrably also bottled) and something else in the primary! You will be very surprised how quickly your beer will go (especially if its as good as you say it is). I am drinking the last of my first batch and its a bittersweet feeling. Tastes f-ing awesome, but its also my last one...

WHOO HOO - congrats. yea - the pipeline will break you. Even though I have maybe 12 cases of assorted brew in the basement I feel the need fore more.

As soon as a primary is empty I have 12 more batches I want to brew. IT'S A CURSE!!!!

Put a bottle or two aside for 4 or 5 months down the road. two reason, first you will see how good a beer gets with age and second, 4 months from now you will see how good you can make beer NOW. Rarely do people make WORSE beer with experience LOL
