    First batch status

    Well, my first brew has been in the fermenter for a week as of yesterday. I realized i accidentily used the botteling bucket (one with the spigot) as my fermenter. :drunk: Well i drew off a sample and tested it with the hydrometer. I measured 1.016 (66 deg temp) and the extract kit notes 1.008...
