I am doing my first batch. It is a Kit Pale Ale. Been in the fermenter 3 days now. Took my first hydro reading. But then I was too excited about tasting that I forgot the reading before I wrote it down. Guess I'll take another tomorrow. I was still bubbling so I'm thinking now ready to bottle anyways. I thought it smelled WONDERFUL when I cracked the top till I took a bg whiff and about gagged from teh alcohol rush up my nose haha. I of course drank my sample. Well hald of it. THere was alot of sediment in it and it was quite alcoholy. (This is ok right cause of it still fermenting)? Should I not have cracked it open since it was still bubbling. From what I've been reading I think I am fine. Here is my sample. It tasted like a hint of citrus and it looks a bit orangey I thought. weird.
