    I did this recipe, and I was kind of worried I'd overdone it but the finished product came out pretty good. If you like Citra hops, you'll like this one. Obviously.

    Stick on Thermometer

    @TBONE 69 I'd just add that it's better to be a bit on the cool side than too warm, so even showing both I'd be okay with that on my fermenter.

    Stick on Thermometer

    You want to keep it blue, the one in the middle. Too warm shows red and I think too cold shows green, if I recall correctly.

    Stick on Thermometer

    Hi @TBONE 69, great question. Are you referring to the little stick-on that just has 3 colors, or the bigger one with the numbers on it?

    MRB Customer Service Rocks

    @Shrike it’s looking like orders placed on 7/28-7/30 may have been affected. They did actually ship, the cancelled message is incorrect. Our website is clearly in the Twilight Zone or something.

    New guy

    Welcome! As others have pointed out, we currently recommend 3 weeks in the fermenter for best results. Not quite accurate, I'm afraid. As many here will be able to verify, 7-10 days in the primary fermenter was conventional brewing wisdom for a long time. This is an issue of outdated instructions, rather than shady salesmanship. You'll note our newer kits have 3 weeks in big bold letters on the outside of the box.
  7. You're not the boss of me, @Brewer, I do what I want. Seriously though, I did it in the melomel because I'd like it if the yeast could ferment some of the sugars from the fruit. In the one I'm going to hop, I did it out of habit, suppose it wasn't strictly necessary. Good thing Fermaid is cheap.

    Perfect Plastic Pint Promotion

    No worries! I have that one too, see attached. Like I said, I'm sure we can work something out if you wouldn't mind DMing me, or I could reply to your emails, whichever you prefer.

    Perfect Plastic Pint Promotion

    Hi there @DEFbrewer, I just tried giving you a call, but I'd be happy to discuss your order here as well. I've attached 2 screenshots from the email regarding this promotion, that show that the promotion was advertised as only including 1 cup per order. I apologize for the misunderstanding. The fact that they're sold as a 4-pack was not intended to imply that you'd get 4 in the promotion, and we never advertised that. If you wouldn't mind DMing me here I'm sure we can work out a way to make it up to you.

    Spring porter recipe

    I've never tried it, since there's no point, but it's my understanding that it produces a grassy off flavor.

    2018 Churchills Challenge

    For the lazy: Horchata is a Mexican soft drink (of a variety called aguas frescas). It's sweetened rice milk with vanilla and cinnamon.

    Metallic Grass like taste, need help

    Unfortunately, hop aroma tends to dissipate quickly. This is why typically, IPAs are better fresh.

    I was hoping no one noticed lol. It's been a long few weeks. When you're live, these things happen.
