New brewer with a lot of ideas. Very artistic and imaginative person. I have been a screenwriter, movie director, national level bikini/lingerie/modeling photographer, and now trying my hand at brewing.

Just recieved a 2 tier home brewing system for Christmas and have my first batch of Amber Ale brewing as we speak.

comment Fruit Beer Question (use of fig and style recommendation)
I have always been told to put fruit into vodka and cover it and leave it over night. Then add to secondary.

comment Do I truly need a wort chiller?
for the time being I do intend to stay with 2.5 gal batches and I do use kits. But it is true that I will eventually want to do all grain brewing. But when I do I am going to rethink my entire setup.

comment Two part question on my first brew batch
Thanks. To be honest, I never even thought about the vanilla as adding bitterness.

comment Two part question on my first brew batch
It was the "American Amber Ale by Brewers Best" Kit. I am saddly blocked at work or i would look up the exact recipe and amounts in the kit. I know you add the bittering hops with 15 min left to boil and the aroma hops at knockout. I have all of my measurements at home as far as gravity, etc. I will post later.
