...And he steps away from the kettle to post!:rockin:

(I think I didn't stray 2 feet from my stove during my first brew...watching every shade of color change in the wort.)

Where's the pictures?

Congratulations on the birth of your first brew!

You need to pass out cigars.

I suppose I should also say...

Partial boil, extract brew....

double stage fermentation.....

Dark Ale kit from the local Wine and Hop Shop.

I am in the middle of my first boiling... about 40 minutes long....Smells wonderful.

how are you chilling it? i'd use a water/ice bath. setting it outside will take FOREVER.

good luck, btw! :mug:

i wish i was brewing too. i'm kegging and possibly racking some beers today, so at least i'm freeing up carboys :)

Right after I posted my last post, I went out and made an ice bath. Was taking too long.

Yeast is pitched, air lock is on and I am watching for fermentation.
