I just brewed my first beer and it actually came out good!
Steeping the grains
After the malt extract was added and all 3 hop additions
Siphoning the wort into the carboy for fermentation
About 6 hours later everything is set up and fermenting
A couple hours later, it was already fermenting fast!
The next day I put in a blow off tube to keep the airlock from clogging and exploding
All done fermenting and ready for bottling
Siphoning the beer into the bottling bucket and mixing with priming sugar to carbonate
It's an 8.5% alcohol IPA
Here's the recipe:
6.6 lbs light liquid malt extract
8oz Cara Wheat
1oz Citra leaf hops (bittering)
1oz Citra leaf hops (flavor)
1oz Citra leaf hops (aroma)
and a little bit of Irish moss
It actually tastes goof!
TL;DR I made beer, it tastes good, it gets you drunk
