  1. Hi @Njaim, and welcome! Please let us know if the beer still isn't tasting very good after you've given it more time, and we'll be happy to help find out what went wrong, and send out a replacement if necessary.
  2. Great question! You'll add sugar to the bottles no matter what goes in the beer or cider. If there's fermentable sugar left, it isn't ready to bottle, so you'll always need more for carbonation. I use the same priming sugar guidelines for sugar and beer.
  3. Sorry to hear that! If this was caused by a manufacturing defect, we'd be happy to send out a replacement. Like @RickBeer pointed out, though, there may have been a few other reasons why that happened that wouldn't necessarily require a replacement. If you like your bucket, that's cool with us! (we use them sometimes ourselves). But, you paid for a working LBK so we'd like to make sure you have one.
  4. Totally normal.
  5. Coopers has goings-on in a surprising number of places already, actually.
  6. A pic would be helpful, but I'd just keep in mind that normal fermentation can get pretty funky-lookin' .
  7. I'm not sure why that decision was made, but I suspect it's a regulatory requirement in one of the countries our products are sold in.
  8. .The funny thing is, that's the info for the extract itself, not the beer. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  9. 1 gallon/3.78541 liters/8 pints/128 oz
  10. I mean, that's kind of the whole point of the exercise. If you've never tried it, I'd suggest grabbing a bottle, it's pretty easy to find these days. It's just a sour fermented tea, sometimes more tart and sometimes less, sometimes carbonated and sometimes still, and very good spiced or with fruit.
  11. I haven't been able to find anything that suggests that kombucha has enough alcohol to have a mind-altering effect, so we didn't really think to address it. Same deal as the root beer kits, the fermentation that gets you carbonation produces a small amount of alcohol, but it's so small as to be considered pretty much insignificant.
  12. Most of them are great! I just meant that on the rare occasions where one will badmouth us, it's like other posters said- they don't carry our stuff, but they want to make a sale anyway. This is a poor tactic for getting that done, there are much better ways.
  13. If it's a homebrew store, they want you to buy something. If not, they're either being snobs (I only brew with these Himalayan malts, you've probably never heard of them) or don't know anything about our products.
  14. I'd use the Belgian Blanc as a starting point:https://www.mrbeer.com/belgian-blanc-recipe It's not exactly the same, but it's along the same lines. The Sam Adams has Grains of Paradise seeds as well, if you wanted to get fancy. For partial mash I'd add 2-row and white wheat. Apparently they use Citra hops, as well, so you might want to add those instead of Hallertau. Note: I haven't had this particular beer, but I've had many like it, so this is research-based, not experience based. You'd have to dial it in a little over a few batches.
  15. Sorry about the wait, we had to take kind of a roundabout solution on yours. Should be any day now.
