Brew Day

After about 6 hours of preparation, brewing and clean-up, brew day is over. It was a lot of work and pretty intimidating, but tons of fun. hopefully in about 5 weeks i can bring a couple of bottle to the beer guys for a tasting. Unless it sucks, which it very well may. I brewed an imitation of Three-Floyds Alpha King, a Pale Ale trying to pose as an IPA with a good amount of hops. I was shooting for a 1.066 original gravity, but only managed 1.055, Not as efficient as I hoped, but still should be up to 5.5-6% abv if the yeast works well. Here's some pics of how it went...

    We shall see, there's more trub and gunk in there than i'd like, but it has a nice cake of foam on top now, fermentation seem to be going nicely. I'f i'm careful hopefully i can eliminate some of the haziness when i switch it to the secondary fermenter...
