I completed my first brew yesterday. Can't say how it has come out yet, but from a brewing point of view I can think of a couple things to improve.
ICE. Wasn't ready with enough Ice. I can see where an immersion chiller is a good tool.
Relax. It is easier that way. I was pretty ok, but it was my first brew.
Sanitize everything early, have everything, plus some extra stuff ready for use. I needed a few "tools" along the way. Bowls, etc. So get them ready upfront.
Find a better way to heat up the extract. It was still pretty thick. Need to get all of it out. (higher gravity that way)
Drink while I brew....well not at 9:30 am.
write everything down. I was ok this time, but need to be sure to record the OG, etc.
