    American Burleywine

    Well I think I might have an American barley wine something in the making. Something sitting in a whiskey barrel going on a year and a half taste something like a barley wine if you want to call it. It was originally a rum oak amber ale that developed a sour taste due to an infection at the time in secondary fermenter with the rum and oak chips. I had just dumped my whiskey barrel and decided to throw that in there just to keep liquid in it to keep it sealed. I tried a sampler last month out of curiosity and was surprised the sour taste has deminshed and it’s more a flavor of wine

    Old Recipes located

    I’ve been looking at trying to find the 1980 recipe in mr beer archives called Peanut Butter Mustard and Greens. No I don’t have the extract from that year, but maybe a substitute??

    Paulaner Oktoberfest Marzen

    First of all it’s s high drinkable beer and low in abv%, do for starters I’d use saflager 189 yeast , maybe to keep it on the lighter side, a Pilsen dried malt extract or even extra golden lite. A very mildly hopped lager, I would use Spaz hops and if u decide to use any grains mix some malted barley in there to clean the beer up a bit. If your not worried about color too much throw in a can of mr beer octoberfest! Heck if you want more authentic flavor throw the can in there to!

    Something other than booster

    I use a minimum of 24 boosters in all my beer recipes, tastes like vodka in my coffee

    Miller Lite

    I dry out my miller lite and it becomes cocaine, but all in all I prefer vodka in my coffee

    Doppelmunder Import?

    I know this is late response compliments to your beer but recently I got another friend Finally started brewing with a Mr. Beer kit I gave him over a year ago along with a Dortmunder and an Octoberfest lager. About a few months ago he asked me to come over and help him get started on this kit and when I got over to his house he had these two beers in the fridge. It dawned on me that one of them was a Dortmunder I brewed with 6 german hops. We poured two glasses worth and I must say that was probably the best german lager I’ve ever tasted! Plus I drank it Very slow bcuz of the ABV% slap in the face! My friend told me if I had enuf patience I cud enjoy this! I really just can’t wait a year man.....

    cold yeast need advice

    My yeast infection was in my hair on my head u know the head that sits on my shoulders....... a bad case of dandruff and the scalp flakes would fall on my body and cause irritation and swelling. The skin doc told me it was a yeast infection.... so there’s no dark and ugly door here unless I’m staring in a mirror drunk and naked lol

    Fermenting bucket instead of using LBK

    ive slightly over filled my LBK past the recommended mark on the side so I could get a little more out of the volume and had over flowing issues from the vents and as well a very lively active fermentation in process
