So What Was Batch #001?

Somebody asked me what was the first homebrew batch we ever did. Well here is the answer. We brewed a premeasured can of extract from the company John Bull. The clerk at the home brew supply store we went to suggested adding 3lbs of malt extract, so wee did. Boiled the lot for a half an hour and added the dry yeast packet. After a week fermenting and two in bottles conditioning we had beer! And surprisingly, it was pretty good (though it definitely got better with time)! It was more than enough to start us down the road we now travel. . .
