Hey guys, it's been 8 days since I bottled the wheat and I just tried one. I'm really pleased with this one! It was my first entirely solo brew and I'm surprised how well it came out. It's not what I wanted it to be, the only hint of honey is in the nose. It tastes like a solid wheat beer and the juice from a quarter of a clementine does just the trick. It pretty well carbonated but I'm going to leave it in my closet (aka conditioning chamber) until next weekend when I suspect it'll be as good as it'll get.

The boys and I will be hitting the cases hard when this brew is on deck

man there's lots of haligonians here eh? I just started a Festa kit from the Noble Grape last night with one of my roommates. Got the cream ale in the primary now, and once we rack it to the carboy we'll start the brown ale in the primary. Can't wait to see how they turn out! I'm definitely glad to hear that people have followed the instructions to the letter and it turned out great; I'm all for experimenting to improve things, but for my first few batches I think I'll stick to the instructions, rather than try and experiment myself, just to get a feel for it.

Hi all, Dave here from PEI. Just starting out here too. I've got a BrewHouse Lager that I just bottled and a FestaBrew Cream ale in the secondary.
Next up for me is the FestaBrew wheat ale. I'll start it next week. So many different beers to make, I want to try them all.

mikebowman, how did your cream ale turn out?

I can't speak for mike, but I made the Festa Brew Cream Ale a few months ago and was pretty happy with it!

Overall, I've made the Brown Ale, Cream Ale, Blonde Lager, and I have a Continental Pilsner ready to go now.
