    Full Mash Kit Instructions Faulty

    If any one had any doubts, this thread should put their minds at ease. MrBeer kit or not, the collective knowledge in this forum and the willingness to offer help and advice is reassuring.
  2. Do you ever tire answering this question? LOL. Maybe it's the beer, but do I sense a level of snarkiness in your use of uppercase for the word "PERFECT"?

    LME Softpack versus Brewmax Booster

    You've already been given 3 good answers to your questions, but I will toss my wooden nickle of advice any way. Booster is a combination of different sugars. Be careful with your fermentation temperatures or you could get off flavors which will fade over time, but who wants to wait with a wheat beer?

    @MiniYoda, thanks. I was beginning to worry about when I'd hear something other than those darn crickets. As for myself, I'm open for almost any weekend this summer.

    How Old is Too Old??

    LOL. I'm thinking a recent newbie asked about the Mrbeer yeast's properties and @MRB Tim commented on it.

    How Old is Too Old??

    I would pitch 2 MrBeer yeast packets. They may be old but they've been sealed and stored in a cool location. I successfully used 1 MrBeer packet that had been stored in an attic for 5 years. The MrBeer yeast, if I remember correctly) is the Coopers yeast. As for too dark? Never heard of it. I would worry about using any old stock which has be sitting open. Some wise man on this forum lives by the motto, "if you don't brew it, who will?"
  7. Sorry for the delay posting this. The voting results indicate Cincinnati is the slightly more favored location (I did not vote). @MiniYoda has proposed Thursday June 6 through Sunday June 9 as the dates. Cincinnati has over 40 breweries with several more located nearby in Indiana and Northern Kentucky. I intend to focus this meeting towards the northern suburbs which in my opinion are some of the better less commercialized breweries. Transportation between locations will be provided. I am asking for feedback. I am asking for an idea of who and how many. It's time to finally get this thing movjng forward.

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    Which local brewery?
  9. I imagine this up and subzero down winter weather hasn't help keep things calm and steady in your line of work. When we do this would you need a vacation day for a Saturday?

    Brewing with Coconut

  11. Agree with you in general, but if somebody voted for Cincy but can't make the dates chosen... could be the difference between a gathering of 5 or more of us or the alternative of only 2.
  12. @hotrod3539, @scouterbill, @BDawg62, I am trying to figure out who voted, who didn't and for which destination. I'm also trying to establish a time frame. Miniyoda has suggested a Thursday through Sunday in early June. I tagged the three of you because you're my first guesses for 2 of the Cincy votes and 1 Louisville.
  13. All I can tell is how many voted for Cincy, but not who voted. Neither do I know who voted for Louisville. I could guess.
  14. When do we want to do this thing?
