Just brewed my first real Brown Ale, Pretty basic and I can't wait to taste it. First ever brew shit the bag. The second tasted like weak watered down cider. this actually tastes like beer Pre bottling so I hope to hell it tastes like beer when its aged and carbonated!!

Another newbie question....

I've seen the link for getting started - but honestly, what's the 'attention' factor involved? Is it a lot of work / time involved to maintain the entire process?

The thought of doing this is neat since we've been enjoying micro-brews. But I'm almost afraid I won't have enough time to commit to it.

Depends on what you're making. The actual brewing process is a couple of hours including sterilization, cleanup, etc. Brewing itself can take from a couple of days to months. But that's just letting it sit for the most part. Bottling is another couple of hours, and is kind of a pain - which is why I bought a keg system.

All told, it's more work and usually more expensive than buying beer. You do it because you want to make wine/beer exactly how you like it. To experiment and have fun, like any other hobby.

Like most stuff, you get better the more you do it, so the time gets shorter. But you still have to take over the kitchen for half a day (twice), which wife/hubby might not like. I ended up building a bar just for a place to brew. Time wise, it's a hobby. Meaning it sucks up free time like a black hole swallows light.

I brew the extract with partial mash recipies right now. An average brew day takes about 3-4 hours for brew and cleanup. The next 30 days are fermentation and aging.

If you like craft beer and are thinking about getting into brewing your own beer I suggest you find someone local who brews and see if they will let you help/watch their next brew. I will be amazed if they say no.

Thanks!!
Yeah, I kinda figured it was somewhat involved with time - which, with my work schedule, I wouldn't have enough time to devote to it. I think I'll stick with supporting the local micro brews!

Thanks again!

Ive got a peaches and vanilla cream ale in secondary. Wanted to branch out and experiment with some new stuff. Honey Wheat or Belgian White are next.

Honey Wheat makes a great base platform. A buddy of mine brewed a honey wheat and added a couple of pounds of mesquite smoked jalapenos (seeds and all) to the mash. That beer had some bite to it. He said next time he is going to step down on the jalapenos and maybe tweak the hops a little more.

Angry Latest brew and note to interested first time brewers...

I've got an amber and a brown on tap... Newer brewer, use brew in a bag method. Started brewing first off by all grain method... That's not any bragging, it's a message to interested individuals that anyone can do it, keep everything post boil really clean and it comes out great! Also, I'm not real patient and even I can get through the process feeling like the wait isn't ridiculous. My brew day is usually 5 hours (5+gallon batches) and I'm sampling carbonated product within about two weeks (if i force carbonate in a corny keg). Its a little young, but i dont know the difference! I've never had a bad batch, and some were amaaaaaazing! But I've only done about 8 batches. Anyway, go for it! And cheers to all you Tacoma enthusiasts!

Assuming you don't have fermentation temperature control capabilities, I'd go with a Blonde Ale or a Hefeweizen.

Yep, right in the middle of tackling that very problem. Building some racks in this old fridge.

Racking my Live Oak Hefeweizen to a keg tonight. I let it sit two full weeks in the primary fermentation this time instead of just ten days. We'll see how it is after another seven days of carbonation.
