First Brew. First Success.
Thumbs up for this brew. I made this as my first brew and I am not disappointed. On the contrary, I'm quite impressed with the results. I followed the directions to the letter and although I was nervous as to whether or not I pitched the yeast correctly after not seeing any activity in the airlock after the first 14 hours, I was happily surprised to see it bubbling away around the 24 hour mark. (I used the Wyeast liquid.) After about a week and a half in the primary there wasn't much visible yeast activity. I held off and bottled after the full two weeks. I ended up bottling a case without the flavoring extract (strawberry) and a case with. I admit that I was skeptical about the flavoring extract and was wondering for the last two weeks if I should have skipped adding it. Needless to say, I'm glad I didn't. Both versions came out excellent. Granted, this is a cream ale so it's taste profile is unobtrusive and very sessionable- especially for commercial beer drinkers. As my first brew, I was hoping for something at least "drinkable" but at the same time expecting it to be a loss. (I figured I screwed something up along the way.) Now, after having tried them extensively, I'm eager to share a few of these with some coworkers and friends. This kit is definitely worth a try for beginning brewers and those looking for a good summer beer to drink. I'll be trying the peach ale next. Cheers.
