    [QUOTE=JStokes;2987412]Checking the specific gravity (German Bock and a Pilsner):[/QUOTE]

    Looking nice. I checked my gravity on some kind of bastard roasted ale thing I brewed recently. It's ready to go, but I'm going to wait for primary fermentation to finish on my other brew so I can secondary one and bottle the other on the same day.

    Doesn't brewing make the house smell f-ing beautiful? It makes my wife want to gag, but I wish they made air fresheners with that aroma.

    That's why we did it at my buddie's house!

    Wasn't as bad as I thought.

    I've done a lot of wine making in my time but haven't tried beer yet. I think I'll give that a go in the spring.

    I think we're actually going to try wine next time. We have 2 friends that enter their wine in competitions, and they told us they'd show us the ropes.

    The beer brewing was a fun evening, lots of beer drinking WHILE you brew!

    Just sampled the beer tonight.

    Mods, feel free to move to the wasteland that is Teh Hamper.

    Wow, I am really surprised at how good it is.

    The German Bock is very smooth and the Pilsner is very clear, golden and crisp.

    they both really taste like...well...for want of a better term...BEER. Like store bought or micro-brew beer. I was a little skeptical but it really turned out pretty great.

    Am a little buzzed on account of it!!

    I think having a previous beer brewer on hand really helped out a lot.

    Excellent, but be careful...it can become an obsession. :beerme:

    I just cracked (prematurely) an Amber Ale and recently bottled a Brown Porter. I brewed a Blonde Ale this past weekend, and will be doing another Brown Porter this weekend.

    Did you force carbonate the beer or did you do it by bottling them with priming sugar?
