  1. Just letting you all know that I gave almost everyone off for the holidays. They deserved it after a very busy year. I have only a few people in the office here and @MRB Josh R is the main person doing support this week and then my accountant and myself. So we have sent many of the new customers here to the forums for help. Thank you for helping them out as seen by a few posts already. We will try to keep up with the phone calls and emails. On behalf of myself and all my awesome employees here at Mr. Beer I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
  2. Scott, We can't put all of the possible shipping options available on the site for a multitude of reasons that I wont get into, but I think we can help you out with this. We are pretty short handed this week, but when my warehouse manger is back next year, let me see if we can send one via US mail instead of UPS shipping. We may be able to get it much less. Send your address in as a ticket here: and then reference ticket 191504
  3. Just to let everyone know. We have made the entire shopping site using https so in case you are having problems connecting, it may be that your browser cache is still recognizing the old site. The community site is not part of the shopping site so it will not have the https. Let us know if you have any issues.
  4. I just got my beer put in the fridge after all the steps listed for my American light and I don't know if I did something wrong but my beer tastes like cider. is that normal, any help is welcomed as I have two more batches to brew and I don't wanna mess them up as well if indeed I did something wrong. or atleast a pathway into finding out if this is a normal outcome for that type of brew thank you so much for your time


  5. Thank you for the note guys.
  6. JoshR brewed this for the Tucson Brewfest and it ran out right away. It was a big hit.
  7. Since you can't taste vodka with that much fruit you may want to throw in the whole bottle.
  8. If you were watching it the whole time it would not bubble over. I think you should get an internet camera hooked to your phone so you can be in constant contact.
  9. We have tried to tell our retailers this for a long time. But the consumers are liking to do only a one gallon brew for some reason.
  10. What do you all think about a Classic American, 4 ounces of DME, 1/4 ounce of hops, and some special steeping grains?
  11. I am up for give you the best experience. Not opposed to the big can going in there.
  12. Josh and I were just talking about this yesterday as we have a small local farmer with about 4000 rhizomes that would provide us with cones soon if we want. We are trying to determine if we want to help distribute those. I love supporting these locals as they are doing it organically with Neem oil and Diatomaceous earth for pest control and natural fertilizer as well (if you catch my meaning). Right now they provide all of it to a local brewery. Let me know if any of you are interested in this sort of thing.
  13. Those are great shots. One thing to remember though. If that dent is on a seam. Let us replace it. I will have a talk with our CSR staff to make sure that they know this as well in our weekly meeting. I am not sure if they are aware of the seam issue.
  14. This is where some people just have different tastes. I have, in the past, went ahead and filled each bottle up 7/8 of the way and then went back and gave each one a little bit of that ending. Other times I have just put it all into that last bottle. Later when you are enjoying your hard work, you can usually see how much is sitting at the bottom and know if you pour slowly you can avoid it if you don't like it. I end up using it with our beer bread that we have (except I am going low carb right now as I have had one too many beer breads) but also throw that beer in the beer brats and hamburgers next to the grill. Never waste it
