So i'm sitting here drinking one of my latest brews (Hefeweizen), and I can definitely see and taste an increase in quality since I started brewing. My last three brews have all exceeded my expectations, and it couldn't make me happier. I feel I am getting to the point where I am being smart about recipe formulation and understanding what goes well with what. I also think I'm really starting to dial in on my whole grain to glass process. With these latest three brews (Irish Red, Pale Ale, Hefe) I sometimes forget I am drinking homebrew. Maybe I'm tooting my own horn, but I am just trying to describe the improvement I've noticed in my beers. Tooting aside, I owe a good chunk of that improvement to this forum and the people who have taken the time to answer my sometimes probably dumb questions. So thank you AHA forum. Cheers.
