    long time user, first time erruption

    Humm, I wonder why.
  2. Good luck. It can be frustrating.

    You live and you learn.

    Oh, yeah. That's true. No pain no gain...

    You live and you learn.

    That's pretty good. I always reserve a cup or so of the boiling water that I mix with the extract, and pour it into the can to get every last drop. Every once in a while I'll read a post here about how Mr. Beer overestimates the ABV, and I've always been very close, so I wonder how much extract people are wasting.

    Final Gravity Question

    Are you sure your hydrometer isn't broken?
  7. That's the one I have. Unless something has changed, I fit one LBK at the very bottom and 2 side by side on a shelf. I did eventually cut all of the plastic off of the door, but that was to fit a 6 gallon fermenter inside.

    What Size Mini-Fridge?

    Something like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002TKJTNI/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Holds 3 LBKs Any really, just get one without a "freezer" if you can.

    The Jim Johnson memorial Landbier

    I feel a Landbier should really be some sort of German Lager yeast, but I am going to make this a Saison given the time of year, and what I can get at my LBHS. I know JJ liked them. I prefer session beers so I reduced the grainbill a tad in proper proportions, I like about 9lbs in my recipes. I saw Polaris at AIH last time I was in, I am excited to try it. 2 lbs Vienna Malt (Weyermann) (3.0 SRM) 5 lbs Pilsner (2 Row) Bel (2.0 SRM) 8.00 oz Cara-Pils/Dextrine (2.0 SRM) 2 lbs Munich Malt (9.0 SRM) 0.25 oz Polaris [18.0%] - Boil 60 min 0.25 oz Polaris [18.0%] - Boil 22 min 0.50 oz Polaris [18.0%] - Boil 7 min 1 pkgs Belgian Saison (Wyeast Labs #3724) Batch Size: 5.50 gal Style: Saison (25B) Boil Size: 6.48 gal Style Guide: BJCP 2015 Color: 5.2 SRM Bitterness: 36.7 IBUs Boil Time: 60 min Est OG: 1.047 (11.8° P) Mash Profile: Single Infusion, Medium Body Est FG: 1.010 SG (2.4° P) Fermentation: Ale, Two Stage ABV: 5.0%

    Hey Everyone!

    Welcome back. Lots of new people have come, at least one has passed. Brew on.

    That should be fine with Citra. Brew on.

    The Jim Johnson memorial Landbier

    Looks great. I'm having a hard time finding that hop local. Or that hop and yeast mail-order.

    The Jim Johnson memorial Landbier

    Sure, sounds good. I probably won't brew this for another 3-4 weeks.

    The Jim Johnson memorial Landbier

    Thanks for the recipe. I'm going to brew this, too. In memory of JJ.

    The saga begins

    There won't be any foam with the bottling wand, you'll see. It will become your favorite brewing tool.
