    American larger kit came with 2 cans HME

    Thanks all. I figured the Yeast was a tosser and now I'll toss the HOPS pellets too. I asked 2 seperate questions because I had an answer for the date on the cans and here I was looking for instructions. Thanks again.

    Sweet...Thank you very much....brew time. 😃
  3. I got a n American Larger refill kit a year ago. It came with 2 cans of HME. One says American Larger and the other says Classic American light. It also included Hops pellets and a bag. No instructions....Do I use both cans? Attached is a picture with what was in the box and the packing list is: ******************************** Liberty Pellet Hops No-Rinse Cleanser Muslin Hop sack Classic American Light American Larger ******************************** In the past I've only received and used one can of HME so confused here. Thanks

    Trying to brew again

    Thank you. I'll give it a go after getting fresh yeast. I have another question but will post a new thread. Thanks again
  5. Haven't brewed for a while and found a kit my wife got me for christmas a while ago. It's an American Lager kit. Bottom of the 2 malt cans reads "best before May 2017". It's been stored in a cupboard and my home is pretty much 70 degrees all year. Any chance for this or is it too out of date and just toss it. Thanks

    Refill expiration date

    Thanks for the replies. Guess I'll try the sep dated one and toss the July. Being in Oregon I'll bet there are lots of brew supply places in Salem. Thanks again.
  7. I have two refil kits and I noticed that the expiration dates on the can bottoms read July 2014 and the other is Sept 2014. Both are in the fridge are they still good? Thanks

    Sanitizing Question

    I'm going to brew the Blonde Ale ths weekend and I have the can of Hopped extract and unhopped extract. The instructions say to sanitize the tools using the powered sanitizer. My question is is it nessary to sanitize the can opener and measuering cup? I'm mearuring out 4 cups of water then boiling it. then pouring the extract into the boiled water. Isn't that enough to sanitize? I've always doused the cup and can opener with the sanitizer liquid but feel thst it is an extra step I don't need to do. Thanks as always. By the way the Irish Stout I brewed and let sit for 2 months is excelent. The longer it sits the better it gets.
  10. Thanks to everyone on the replies. I have the 2 can delux refil and after reading this and the Malt to Adjunct thread I've decide to brew as is and get my extra jolt of alcohol from a shot or two from my bottle of Gentleman Jack. Thanks again
  11. I'm going to mix up a kit of Classic American Blonde Ale w/Pale Export. this weekend. Can I get a little extra boost on the alcohol if I add a bit of sugar or honey?I don't have anything else at this time although I could run down to the local supply if needed. Thanks SteveT

    Dead St. Patrick's Stout?

    The corn sugar I use is more like a fine powder. Got it at my Local brew store.

    Bummed out

    Well It's been Almost two months since the Heart Attack. Dr. Ok'd me to have a few and finished off the Cowboy Larger. Was excelent. Going to Florida Saturday and have a batch of Irish Stout I just bottled Sunday. I'll let that sit for 4 weeks. so doing well and thanks to all for the well wishes. By the way. Cardio rehab is a heck of a workout. SteveT

    Dead St. Patrick's Stout?

    I have a question about this beer too. I just bottled my batch Sunday. Added 1/2 teaspoon of corn sugar to each 16 oz bottle. It's been two days and the bottles don't seem to be getting hard. was 1/2 teaspoon sugar not enough? Thanks Steve
