Here is the beer after 20 days. So far, the plan is going OK. It has been fermenting away prodigiously and it has a really strong aroma of beer. (It actually smells like beer!) I am concerned, however, that it appears so thick and hasn't cleared, even though the sediment is settling at the bottom. Not really concerned, however, because the worse that could happen on that account is that I would have to add more water. I didn't know what ratio of malt extract to water I should use when I first made it, so I just guessed. If I have to use more water, so much the better, because that just means more beer for the same cost.
