I would like to thank Clay Phipps (hplabs!garth!phipps) for his excellent
Anchor Steam-Style Amber recipe in the Cat's Meow. We brewed this as our
fourth batch just before Christmas and it was by far our best yet.

I without a doubt that the quality of our beers has improved with the
purchase of a glass carboy for use as a secondary. My next brewing
purchase will no doubt be a wort chiller. I'll probably wait until
next year to start full mash recipes. Watching Bill Seliger, who got
me into brewing in the first place, do a full mash twice a month is
enough for me right now.

Last week Bill told me about an unofficial tasting here in Evanston, IL,
and encouraged me to enter a beer. Believe it or not, the steam-style
beer came in second, only to Bill's light lager. But by far the best
part of the evening was getting to meet the judges. I also met the
owner of Goose Island brewery and a few other home brewers.

Just a new brewer's recent experience.
