    First batch was crap

    Since I was not overly impressed with CAL (it was your typical weak tasting light beer) I was not expecting a lot from the Cowgirl Honey Light. But last night I tasted my first "Cowgirl Honey Light" and it was the most amazing beer I've made to date! I thought my St. Patrick's Stout was good but this one takes the prize. I will definitely be brewing this one again. It poured to a thick head and the head retention was long. It was smooth with a light malty flavor and a slight hoppy finish. IMPRESSIVE BEER!

    I've got the Cowgirl Honey Light bottled and conditioning as we speak. It tasted great out of the LBK on bottling day so my expectations are high for it once it has conditioned. Your post (Ga Ced) is encouraging.

    Of course, MichaelL, It is entirely possible that you may not live until Wednesday, much less May 11th if you keep telling everyone your wife's age. She may end your life and drink your beer for you!

    Home Grown Beer Labels

    Awesome labels! If the beer turns out as good as the labels you have nothing to worry about! Welcome to the forum!

    Home Grown Beer Labels

    I brewed my own recipe with an 8.0 ABV and I called it "Rabid Bee Nectar." On both sides of the label I placed an angry looking bee. I will have to post a picture of it soon. I've not tasted it yet because I'm allowing it to condition for at least eight weeks. I get most of my graphics off of a public domain clip art site.

    first batch. need advice

    You messed up! The only thing you can do is box up those bottles of beer and send them to me and start another batch. I'll be glad to drink (oops) I mean dispose of those beers for you. Congrats on your first batch my friend.

    Yes another new guy

    Welcome Styx and Daddy Styx! Just remember that the only stupid question is the one you DON'T ask. Good luck with the new brew hobby. I look forward to you sharing with us how they turn out.
  10. If mine tastes a little like cider after fermentation, I will leave it in the LBK a couple of days longer and this usually takes care of the cider taste, then I bottle/carbonate my batch. Time cures most everything, whether in the LBK or in the bottle. Patience is the key.

    ETA on out of stock LMEs

    Hey MRB, When are you going to have the BrewMax LME SoftPacks that are out of stock, back in stock? There are several recipes I want to try that call for these "missing in action LMEs." I'm getting thursty just at the thought of running out of my favorite brews.

    powerful patriot

    Item #7 on the brewing instructions for Powerful Patriot says to sprinkle both packets of yeast in the LBK. Happy brewing and let us know how it turns out!

    Bottles and caps

    The only thing those screw top bottles are good for is for playing spin the bottle with a bunch of beautiful women!!!! If you decide to do that, invite me to play!
