Title: Thanks Everyone
Post by: gmac on April 01, 2011, 12:48:10 AM
I mentioned this in another post but it's sort of buried so I wanted to thank everyone who gave me advice on my first all-grain.  I tried it out last night with some friends and I have to say that I think it's pretty good.  Sure, there's lots of room for improvement but I'm sure that will come with experience. 

In particular I want to thank Denny for all his advice on batch sparging, Tschmidlin for his advice on starters and Euge for his real-time PM advice when things weren't going perfectly.  But also I wanted to thank all of you who weighed in with advice and encouragement. 

Thanks again.
ps.  This beer is a little sneaky.  Goes down very smooth but it certainly crept up on us last night.  Three guys went to work today with headaches.  Must be the water I used...

Glad it turned out well :)

Definitely the water, it probably had too much alcohol in it ;) ;D

  Sure, there's lots of room for improvement .....


  That's the great advantage of all grain. Take it to where you want it to go.

 And yeah, I've noticed my water gets a little sneaky at times.
