I'm so glad to hear that you're happy with your beer! I know that if my first brews wouldn't have come out well, I might have given up. In retrospect, maybe they weren't really that good but at least drinkable. I think a large part of it was finding HBT about 1/2 way through my inital brewing attempts.

Two years ago, if someone would have told me that I'd be brewing all-grain beers that are as good as anything I could buy, I would have laughed out loud. Now, I say, "Well, yes, of course!". I did a beerswap as a relatively new brewer and was given good feedback that really helped me. I like to think that any of us can make great beer if they try.

Congrats on the great batch! :mug:

My first batches were REALY awful! Lack of education/shoddy equipment was at fault. After reading Papazian's two books and Palmer I decided to try again. Even after all that if I had not stumbled on to this board I would have made several key mistakes. I now know enough to make the styles of beers I like and have fallen into a deep obsession with brewing. Probably would not have happened without the expertice of HBT members. Thanks again! (or should I say "It's all your fault!")
