      RoughDraughtBeer A pale ale. It was a "from-the-box" type recipe kit, but that's a good place to start it think. We'll see how it turns out.

      HEISCHMAN I am thinking about brewing again this weekend. I need to get a 2nd Carboy though. I want to Rack the ESB to 2nd fermenter and I used my 6 gal carboy for 1st fermenting.

      RoughDraughtBeer We're just using buckets for fermentation, but, without thinking it through thoroughly, we put 5 gallons of beer in a 5 gallon fermenter. We got some beer bubble up into the air lock. I'm going to get a larger bucket soon.

      HEISCHMAN There is nothing wrong with using buckets, I did the batch I'm drinking right now in a bucket. I just like to watch the yeast do its thing.
