  1. I might actually get to brew on Sunday, since I've finally ordered some Mr. Beer recipes. Of course I missed the 20% off sale, but who cares? Now it's on to deciding which one it'll be: the WDA, Chromos, Yule, or the NWPA with El Dorado?
  2. I'm excited to hear about brew day!!
  3. @RickBeer scared another one off!
  4. They finally caved!! So is this going to be the next McRib?
  5. As am I... and of course it's super limited
  6. Without searching the forum, I remember the conversations about rabbits. I am thinking that this isn't the right answer, but I'm going to take a shot in the dark and say AC.
  7. Some tough competition, apparently lol. I can't claim to know the others off the top of my head, and dare not google them.
  8. #3: Bronson Pinchot (sic?) you're showing your age and naïveté, Creeps 😂
  9. I've tried the "wish list" thing; you apparently have to buy the stuff you put in there. I was kinda hoping Mr. Beer would just magically send you the stuff you wish for. Maybe that function is broke on the website? 😉 I wish you all the best in the new year, my extended brewing family!
  10. I believe the initial intent of slowly inverting the bottles after capping was to check for leaks.
  11. I learned this the hard way early on. I certainly didn't blast Mr. Beer and put the blame on myself. It was my second batch and I was still learning. It did, however, turn out that the spigot hole in the LBK was not cut correctly and the leak was unavoidable. The gracious and helpful Mr. Beer customer service had no issues with sending me a replacement, for free.
  12. Looks like you now have an Apricot Sour @Nickfixit!
  13. Even with your strength in numbers, you can't beat the dynamic duo from beer-hating Oklahoma!! @HoppySmile!
  14. Short version (as I'm headed to bed): you need to boil hops in some sort of malt (not just water) in order to get them to "stick". Just don't boil them in HME; use steeped grain water or LME, then add the HME at flameout.
  15. I'm still drinking stuff I brewed from earlier in 2016. I say go for it!
