    Helles Bock

    Definitely 3 weeks in the fermenter. Mine was a bit overcarbonated. It was a tasty brew and all gone quickly!

    Really odd question

    Easy to tell Oxygen Barrier Bottles. They are much thicker and I find it easy to tell then apart.

    @where is @MrWhy? The mystery gets deeper. @Bonsai & Brew and @Creeps McLane I enjoyed observing the camaraderie you were having sharing samples, etc. I hope nothing happened to him. Maybe since you have a shipping address (or an email) you could write a letter or email and check in on him?

    Wow. I really hope he is all right. A shame the beer never arrived and it was nice of your guys to share.

    Mr Beer Wild Wheat - 1 yeast or 2?

    PS - @MRB Josh R I do enjoy the live streams and I do pick up more of the *why* for the various caveats on brewing, which helps my inquisitive mind!

    Mr Beer Wild Wheat - 1 yeast or 2?

    Thanks Josh! I was seeing pretty strong fermentation. I will take out of my temp controlled fridge which is in the mid 60s and temp controlling a hazy ipa batch.
  7. @MRB Josh RI am brewing the Mr Beer Wild Wheat Recipe. In the instructions it says to add the yeast from *both* the American Ale (Std Mr Beer Yeast) and Bavarian Wheat (wheat beer yeast). https://www.mrbeer.com/wild-wheat-recipe I have followed the recipe. Is it correct to add both yeasts? If not, and I have already added both yeasts, what temperature should I keep the fermenting LBK at? Thanks - PS this question was also presented on today's live twitch stream re brewing infections and how to handle. Just confirming what to do. Thanks!
  8. In the end, I just bottled it without cold crashing. It had an intriguing flavor with the citrusy grapefruit. Much better than the commercial raspberry gose sample I tried at my local growler / many beers on tap shop. I think I just like citrus as a flavor.

    I also want to say I miss @MrWhy. I don’t think he has been on the boards this year. Anyone been in contact with him? I really enjoyed his enthusiasm for brewing.
  10. Tastes great - almost like all it needs is carbonation! I predict a great beer! Bottling was a little tough because fruit bits kept getting stuck in wand. Otherwise all good!
  11. Black IPA is all nice and cold crashed for 3 days. Should I cold crash my Salty Dog Grapefruit Gose or just bottle it too?
  12. On the plus side, I found a use for the boards my wife and son broke in Tae Kwon Doe - tilting LBKs to reduce trub-age! @RickBeer will be proud!
  13. Okay - I do have a black IPA and a Salty Dog Gose in LBKs that I plan to cold crash. That is one downside of the 2G Fermenter - hard to temp control and cold crash.
  14. @RickBeer, @MRB Josh R, @MRB Tim, @MRB Josh B @Jdub I would like to cold crash my Tangerine Hoppy IPA starting this Sunday after 3 weeks in the fermenter but . . . . It is in the 2G tall fermenter, not my LBK. I have a minfridge I can cold crash LBKs in but it is not large enough for the 2G tall fermenter. I could: - transfer from the 2G to a sanitized LBK using a bottling wand to reduce aeration and then cold crash in the LBK; OR - use ice packs and artificial ice in a keg cooler jacket to try to cold crash the brew in the tall 2G fermenter for 3 days. But I don't think I will be able to get temp down low enough; OR - not cold crash. I welcome thoughts on this! Thanks!
