Brewing day

So I brewed my first batch on 1-23-2011

The Mr. Beer kit I used was the basic west coast pale ale refill. I must say it is very important to make sure you have an understanding of the directions before you get started. The number of times I had to re-sanitize my stirring spoon because I thought I was done with it was way too many. Also it is good to have a longer handled spoon for stirring, and to have 2 gallons of water in the fridge before hand instead of just one. But I think overall the brewing was a success. The wort was pit in the fermentor and the yeast was pitched. Time to wait for nature to take it’s course. My next brew I am going to make sure I have all the tools needed to make it easier on myself. The lhbs should be able to supply me with everything and it is close by so no shipping costs!

Hello world!

Well I decided to start a blog about my experiences in home brewing. I ordered the Mr. Beer home brewing kit this seems to be a very easy kit to use. I also found a lhbs ( local home brewing store) I hope to really learn a lot by doing this. I hope to add lots of pictures as well.

The name of my “brewery” is DAM brewery. My initials are D.A.M so this means it is mine. I also think it gives lots of opportunities for nice slogans.
