Well we got back into it yesterday. First time in more then 3 years. Had
some complete newbs come too.

16lb American 2-row
4lb light brown sugar
4 oz Columbus
4 oz Kent Goldings

Other then a stuck sparge at one point things went pretty well. I think
we are going to attempt two different 10 gal batches at the same time
next time if we can pick up a couple more newbs that want to get involved.

Welcome back to the craft.  And congrats on bringing in the noobs.  What
of yeast are you using with that recipe?  Let us know how the
batches go.

Having been as long as it had I opted for the expensive liquid in the
starter packs, ie cold compress break and shake bags in the team
trainer's kit. I don't remember exactly which one, but I saved all the
packaging for the hops and yeast etc. so that I could document later.

I have it all sitting in my home office in the corner as it is still
getting down to freezing at night here and I wanted to keep it at a more
steady temp then the garage offers right now.

It took off well enough in the first 24 hours that the airlock is being
held tight against its own top when I got home from work last night, and
this morning the smell of ripe bananas is out into the rest of the
family room from behind the closed office door.

This waiting part is my least favorite part of brewing.
