    Have you had IPAs in the past that you liked? That style certainly isn't for everyone. I love it myself, but many don't.

    Aztec Mexican Cerveza

    I recently made this refill as is. Now, I ran from it for a long time because for whatever reason I didn't think I'd like it. I've gotta say that I'm pleasantly surprised with this one. It's really good to me, and I haven't even had it with salt & lime yet!

    ATTN. MR BEER STAFF Australian Sparkling Ale

    The Australian Sparkling Ale is just about my least favorite brew that I've made. That being said, I drank every single one of them though. Just goes to show how different our palates can be.

    Starting to think about HME and LME

    I'm 43 and just about every job I've had has involved night work. I enjoyed straight days for about 9 years as a local truck driver. I'm a railroader now.

    Starting to think about HME and LME

    See, I do the salt thing with my coffee. I don't use cream, and the salt masks the bitterness. I've done it beers before too, but not with my own. Definitely trying it, maybe in the morning when I get off. Don't judge me, lol.

    I have 3 packs that say 16916. How do I interpret that? I also have a couple silver packs that have nothing on them at all.

    Thunder Bay IPA Reloaded

    Hmm, I don't know, I got almost identical results 2nd time around. FG 1.020 the first time, and 1.019 now. No gonna sweat it though, just gonna carb it up and drink em like the last batch, lol.

    No Hop Sack

    What's the difference between dumping pellet hops straight into the fermenter versus putting them in a Muslin sack?

    How much were you using? I mostly use 16 oz bottles and I go one teaspoon per. It's not too bad, the bottles usually have some "give" to them.

    Yeah, why waste the time if you dont want any fizz? For me, that's the best part though, I think I'm addicted to carbonation. Lol

    A couple of newbie questions??

    I usually shoot for between 64 and 68. I use the ice bottle and cooler method for temperature control. Sometimes I forget to change out the bottles because I have this whole real job thing that I do. I've come home and found batches in the 70s before, but I guess a couple hours doesn't hurt so bad because they seem fine to me.

    Below 70 is the key!
