Hey Dan, looks like you just dove right into the deep end

I am just down the street(figuratively) so if you want to watch a brew session with me or just want some (humble) advice let me know. I do not make any claims but so far everyone likes my beers!

I've been brewing for about a year and a half. I do all-grain batches and bottle for now!
I have a few extract batches under my belt too!

Good luck and keep on brewing!

Well my first batch is in the Keg getting infused with CO2. I tasted the sample I pulled for Hydrometer testing and it tastes good so far. I got even more excited after smelling it in the keg (added apricot flavoring) It smelled real tasty.
making an apricot blonde.

My plan is to remake a Fat Tire Clone and a brown ale that I just recently brewed but need to make adjustments on. Depending on money and time I am going to shoot for two weeks out. Of course weather may have a play in it too, I have a covering but if it is really windy I will wait.

I am kind of excited, my wife got me an oxygenator for Christmas and I cannot wait to try it out! woo hoo

Got to raise a glass of my first batch last night. In my opinion, it turned out great. I am super excited about doing this one again.
