Not going to lie.  I have been very nervous about tasting my first home brew.  If it turns out my batch tastes like the sweat off a monkey’s balls I’m going to beyond disappointed.

I waited exactly two weeks to the day and threw a six pack from under my stairs into my fridge to chill.  Finally the moment of truth has arrived.

I got out my favorite beer glass.  I have a couple of these old beer glasses from my wife’s late grandfather.  They hold nearly a 12oz beer but I just love the shape of them.

Once I started pouring my beer one of my fears went away.  I was concerned about the carbonation but once I started pouring the beer into the glass a nice foamy head formed.

Look at that.  It’s a thing of beauty.

But now the real test. …

And SUCCESS!  My first home brew is a smashing success.  WHEW! What a relief!

Now I can’t wait to start my next batch but first I’m going to finish this and perhaps one more.

Cheers!
