Well finished it dropped the starter about 2 hours ago.... OG was 1.046 72% effeciency that isnt bad considering it was my first AG but Meeklo had done plenty so I had an advantage.....

It was mostly grains that I had here from doing partial mash batches.....

Started planning the next one before the first started to push CO2 out of the air lock.....

Any more types of grain available? he he.

You're going to love the beers you produce with AG. Can't believe it took me so long to take the plunge.

Keep us updated!
