Hey, long time reader, first time poster.
Just a word of thanks to everyone here. I have been reading your posts for 6 months now getting ready for my first batch in 12 years. I brewed today! An easy Liberty Cream Ale kit but, man, was it nice to get back again. I never realized how much I missed the smell of boiling wort.
Because of your advice, it was a snap. Got a Bayou Classic, a couple of Better Bottles and a 3 keg system and a wort chiller. I boiled the full 5(1/2)g at once. Next time I'm going to siphon from the pot after a whirlpool though. I'm going to secondary in the keg then finish in a keg as well.
No, I didn't take any gravity readings this time. I just wanted to let time take it's path. It seems a bit more relaxing that way. From what I read here most of you don't on every batch. I just want to do it for fun.
And the SWMBO, let me get everything on the list, even brought me a burger today! Life is good!
Thanks for everything.

LOL! I'd like to thank the Academy...
Man things have really changed in 12 years. Of course the internet has launched this hobby into a new realm. Equipment and the use of has really taken a turn for the better. First time for me with the Better Bottles. I'm a bit wary of it as a primary but, I'm committed now. I guess that's why I chose the keg set-up. Man when I first started this, Cornies were something we had to beg for at the soda plants and then, getting parts was a whole other thing. I hate bottling so the kegs are a relief!
