its a kit so its in premeasured bags. doesnt really sat how much of what is in there. i know since its a kit i prolly have nothing to worry about on the whole thing... ive just got that noob nervousness. need to quit worrying and just brew the damn beer. but i think i have benefited greatly from waiting a week and reading up alot on this site and other literature.

Alright. Well, if you can guess on the amounts, go here to figure your OG BeerTools.com Recipe Calculator. You can register an use a downgraded version of the software.

Note: Most Dry Malt Extract (DME) come in 3lb packages
AND Most Liquid Malt Extract (LME) come in 3.3 lb cans

I just brewed that same kit let me guess you bought it at Foremans? it was 1.046 before I pitched the yeast its still fermenting so I can't tell you the final. It smells pretty dang good though now I just need more bottles. I am new to bought this is my fourth batch in 2 months LOL. I am getting addicted and my buddies like it as well.
