I think I know how I lost that little bit, but am not entirely sure. Still though. I can't wait to pop one in honor of my daughter's birth.

I'll be drinking on my third brew, a nut brown ale, while doing this. Nutty Monkey. It's damn good. 5.8%.
What are you guys doing? lymelizzard? BruceBrewski? anyone?

I am planning on taking my beer to the my work today and pouring them into glasses and taking pics to show colors. I'll post them later.
This weekend I am gonna make another 2 batches. I am making another Summer Ale, maybe the same recipe, maybe not. Then I am going to make a highland gaelic ale clone.
The exciting part is that I am going to try to get into kegging this weekend. I am searching for a kegerator or a good deal on a mini fridge to make it into one.
Which would be amazing, because I could bring it to Huddle tailgates and plug it into my truck. Craft Draft at the tailgate!

Its just a more fun process.
I think after my next two beers, I am going to make an DFH Aprihop clone.

What do you carbonate with, and how long does it take to finish?
I've used carbonation drops for my first few, but used priming sugar this last time, and I'm wondering how long I should give it.

i got an icecube cooler that i modified to fit a carboy but i still can't get it down as low as I want. Any suggestions?

Put the carboy in something larger and surround it with water. Drape a t shirt over the carboy and let it hang into the water. The shirt will draw in moisture and drop the temp of the beer around 5 degrees. I read that you want the t shirt all the way up to the airlock and that you can also use a towel but it would me more likely to mold.
