  1. Congratulations! Let the brew be with you!
  2. I can speak from experience that just about every lhbs in Canada sells coopers hme ‘s. Usually cheaper as well. Scale the larger cans for your batch and brew on!
  3. Welcome! Best of luck and most importantly enjoy the process!
  4. All will be okay. It will be an excellent brew!
  5. Inkbird. Bar fridge. Temp control is an absolute must. Do yourself and your tastebuds a favour!
  6. Go check out your LHBS shop. They have many cans of extract, most for 5 gallons but they will still be cheaper than the crazy cost to get mr. B to us in Canada. Not sure if you have a Princess Auto store near you, but if so, they sell good quality extracts by a competitor of Mr B’s that I have successfully used. Happy brewing!
  7. I have been doing two cans of craft Mister beer jazzed up with hops and grains in a partial mash and then split between two LBK’s. Same amount of work really and I have had very good results. Helps build the pipeline!
  8. Welcome! Have fun and enjoy the process. As your knowledge builds, the beer will improve and you will find it a rewarding and flavorful hobby. Cheers to you!
  9. Congrats on entering a fun and rewarding hobby. The brews will just keep getting better and before you know it you will crave your own beer instead of storebought. Cheers and happy brewing!
  10. I have this happen when my beer fridge needs defrosting. Gets the brew too cold I believe.
  11. Myself and Matt Kenseth both decided that it's DeWalt or nothing! Good choice!
  12. Has anybody got any wisdom to share regarding peated malt? I saw it at the LHBS and would like to experiment but I am unsure of what style/ how much etc. I know from my reading that you must be careful to not use too much. Any info on this would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
  13. Seems a bit harsh. I have two and never had a problem. Mr B customer service is excellent, they will be able to help you.
  14. Welcome. Have fun brewing and consuming!
