My wife got the brew kit for a Christmas gift so lucky me, I get to start trying my hand at brewing. Did my first batch today, caribou slobber, and hope i did everything correctly. I have a few questions though.
I used regular softened tap water, is that ok?
When I put the 2gl into the carboy I took it directly from the tap, is that ok?
I just poured the dry yeast in and some of it stayed in the foam and I shook up the carboy to mix it around, next time can I use water to mix the yeast before I pitch it?
I already have a 2nd kit, EPA, that I will brew when I move the slobber to the secondary in a week or two. Want to make sure if there are things I can do to make sure it all is done correctly I do them
