I started homebrewing my own beer in early 2006. So far I've made the
following batches. Nothing fancy, just extract kits so far. I started with a kit
of equipment and added to it an auto-siphon and bottle washer.

Traditional English Ale, John Bull
Alcohol content 4%
Brewed for 7 days in primary fermenter (plastic pail) and 17 days in
secondary fermenter (glass carboy) at about 20 degrees C. Bottled in
plastic bottles. Carbonation was low after 7days of conditioning but
better after 14 days. Similar in colour and taste to Guinness. For my
first batch ever I was pleased with the results.
