Homebrew - German Style Dark

First ever homebrew using a starter kit from "Eats", our local organic food shop. Followed the instructions as best we could and read a ton on the Internet. Didn't know if we were supposed to filter the wort as we moved it to the fermenter. Talked to Joseph on the phone and he suggested straining it through something like cheese cloth to get most of the bigger stuff out of it. Kept the primary in the downstairs toilet, had to keep the door open at night time to keep the temperature up.

Ingredients: German Style Dark, Extract kit from True Brew
Brew:        16 Jan 2011
Bottle:      27 Jan 2011 (11)
Ready:       10 Feb 2011 (14)
Summary:     Primary 11 days, Condition 14 days

First beer ever turned out great. Was very happy with the whole thing and totally bitten by the homebrew bug.
