Call Me Brewmaster specialKevin
So on Saturday Tristan and I brewed my first batch of beer. I brewed an Extra Pale Ale also called an American Pale Ale. It is like a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. I was supposed to get a 6.5 gallon glass carboy with my brew kit, but I was sent a 5 gallon glass carboy. I had to cut down the batch size to four gallons instead of five gallons. This might cause an increase in the abv of the brew but since we forgot to take the initial gravity we can't be sure if there is an actual increase. If this brew turns out good I plan to brew it again just so we can see how strong of an increase we get by cutting the batch down to four gallons. Pictures from my first adventure in brewing can be seen here.
