I know there are some other home brewers on here; Bwana and TJ for starters.

I'm brewing my first batch ever today. It's a German wheat. Looking forward to tasting this bad boy in about a month! :-) :-) :-)

I been brewing since May of last year and haven't lost a batch to infection yet. My buddy has lost two batches since he started brewing and since we typically brew ten gallon batches it's a painful experience.

You doing any all grain or just extracts? It will probably be a year or so before I'm ready to try all grain.

Extracts with grains and I have one mini-mash under my belt. I'm putting together all of the equipment for all-grain right now and should be ready for my first batch in the Spring.

Your buddy loses his beer? Did he look behind the couch?

I wish someone would brew me a nice American Bock.

American beer sucks. This country has ruined beer. That's all the Brits really wanted - us to enjoy good beer. Why did we have to go and kill all the redcoats?

The :blvd: smiley made me think of it, but has anyone checked the price on Boulevard lately? It's up to around $8 a six pack down here, which is just freaking ridiculous.

Yikes! I buy beer (at least finished product) so little anymore that I had no idea. :-) My ales typically price out somewhere in the $15-20 per case and it will only get cheaper when I go all-grain.

Not yet. Last time I checked was before work, around 7 a.m. At that point it had been about 17 hours. Should I be concerned?

What did you use to clean your containers before adding the wort?

Clean? What do you mean?

Hehe. Just messing with you.
I used BTF? or something like that. It's an iodophor.

You have to do that in order to prevent and infection in the beer. I used iodine
