This is the first of Steve's very first attempts at brewing, which we finally got to sample yesterday. It is a lovely stout, and quite drinkable, but we both want to give it another week to see if it improves. The current batch he has in the fermenter is a Califnornia Common, so named because of the strain of yeast he used. The closest commercial equivalent would be an Anchor Steam beer. And after the California Common is done and in the bottles, he's going to make me a Pilsner!!
