I followed up my first brew with something a bit easier (and stronger). I tried this cider that my coworker made. It is delicious and potent. It couldn't be easier to make; sugar, apple juice, and yeast at room temperature for a couple months. I have this stored in my storage room because this one puts off a pretty nasty smell while it ferments. I've got a sleeping bag to hopefully keep it warm enough.

The First Brew - Results

I kegged my first brew a while ago, but it took me a while to get these pictures up. I think this beer was a hit and a miss. It's drinkable, but I don't think the final gravity ever got low enough. It's a little on the sweet side.

Hooked up to the kegerator successfully. Since this picture was taken, I've changed my beer line to 10 feet.
