Yay beer!

Well, I finally took the plunge and brewed a batch of beer today. It just so happens that Austin Homebrew Supply has a recipe for Spatan Optimator, which is my favorite beer. The amount of malt in it is insane, pushing 3x the amount in the beer dopplertx brewed Sunday.

Things went pretty well I'd say. I was nice and careful about bringing the wort to a controlled boil, so no boil-over. Great! Then I added the hops and all hell broke loose; about 1/3 of the wort boiled over. *sigh*

Anyway, it's in the fermenter now, hopefully the yeast will stop resperating and start fermenting soon.
