    MiniYoda got a reaction from Cato in The Real Mr. Beer - Live Stream Thread   
    It was great to be back on and able to watch the live streams again. Thanks @MRB Tim for the video on Yule Like This Ale.  I still have a few bottles of the first time I made this recipe, bottled December 23 last year.  Throwing out some ideas on the chat area about holiday beers, including Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and Winter in general made me "chomping at the bit" (as they say in Kentucky) to get started brewing again. 
     
    I'll start cleaning the brewery (aka Kitchen), and evaluating my tools of the trade this weekend.  Perhaps I can ferment a Saison soon while I wait for the temps to cool down a bit, and work on a brewing schedule.

    Personal expenses - No earthly idea how to do this one.
    Figure out what beer to bring...…….that's a tough one
     
    I went a bit rouge on the hotel.  My plan is to arrive Wednesday 17, and fly out on Tuesday 23, thus I'm there for about a week.  While the hotel that Mr. Beer is selecting for the event is excellent, since I'm going to stay more days, their rate will change for the non-conference days.  Instead, I'm staying at the Extended Stay America -Tucson Grand Road.  It's with walking (staggering) distance of the Sheraton Tucson, and between us is an IHOP in case I want breakfast (which I rarely eat).  Plus with the savings, I get to sample more Tucson breweries
     
    Work on Flight will take a bit longer
    Rental car can wait a while
    What beer to bring...…...um...…….
     
    Can't wait for October

    just bought the international discounted sale that Mr. Beer has.  Between those six, and an American Light, I should be able to start the brewery up again soon.

    And yes, I did see Mama Mia #2 this weekend.  Don't ask, don't tell (but it was a very good movie)
     
    Thinking another mid-west get-together.  While I have no problem with another visit to 3 Floyds, I'm open to suggestions on where to go this time.  There are a lot of great breweries in the mid-west area.  Cincinnati, Indianapolis, St. Louis, and other areas in between.  Not going to plan anything yet, perhaps a get-together in March/April of next year.  Just opening the table for ideas, as far as where and when.

    MiniYoda got a reaction from Brian N. in One Gallon Glass Fermenter?   
    no, you still need the two gallon fermenters for those recipes.  These are good for making 1 gallon all-grain batches.  One thing you could do, though, is get two of them, make a regular recipe from Mr. Beer, and split it between the two fermenters.  Then you could experiment by dry hopping one with one type of hops, and the second with a different type of hops.

    MiniYoda got a reaction from Palmetto Brew in Chantilly Lace   
    I've made the Chantilly Lace before, and first thing.....yours came out amazingly clear.  Congrats.
     
    Mine came out malty too, and I thought about adding a dry hop to offset it if I do this recipe again.  Secondly, yes, many of Mr. Beer recipes come out darker than they advertise.  Personally, color doesn't matter, because I can't taste or smell color.  I just chalk it up to "it's an ale, and ales are amber".
     
    Having said that, there will be a flame war about colors of beers, colors of ales, and colors of lagers.  But to me, the color and clarity of your beer looks great.

    Ok so I just tasted the Chantilly Lace I brewed.  Turned out good.  A liitle malty for my taste but I'm sure it tast like it is suppose to and my wife likes it too.  It is not the color I was expecting, much darker.  I thought it would be more like SRM 3 - 5 in color.  Has anyone else made this and if so how was yours?  All and all it is the best tasting beer of the three I have brewed so far so I will chalk it up as a success!  Next out of the fermenter is Diablo IPA and an American Lager standard.

    You have to collect the co2 that comes out of your beer, and then use that to fill the tank
