2nd batch wasn't too shabby... you've read the Chech Pilsner reviews here.
On to the next batch. Not a fan of October-fest-ish beers, and not particularly fond of winter brews, I'm trying an IPA. I'm a bit concerned about my initial specific gravity (1.034), and hope it doesn't end up being too thin. Like a good little homebrewer, I followed the directions, though I don't really like using dextrose (of which I used 300g versus the 500g of dry light malt). I really love the smell of my house after brewing. The primary fermenter is bubbling away right now. I'll probably take the brew off the yeast and finish it in a secondary fermenter sometime this weekend. Hope to bring some beers out to Fort Collins with me next month.
3 cheers for homebrew beers.
