First batch in new house finally done

I havent brewed since my son was born in april. I had a house for sale all summer and a new one under construction. We have been moved in for a month now and I finally got my gear set up and brewed a batch last night, and it was extremely satisfying. No time to plan a recipe just brewed with what I had. Have no idea what my water is like just pulled the trigger cause its been tooo loooong. :cheers:

All in all it went very well I was using all my same equipment, just arranged a little differently. Brewed in the evening instead of the morning and was done by 1030. Had a little trouble getting the grain mill to grab the grain at first, and some small leaks that required tightening fittings.

Heres what i brewed i put it into beersmith this morning.
