    Carbonation question

    Yes I'm using the plastic bottles. The bottles felt firm when I put them in the refrigerator. There was not much foam at all. It just seemed flat after the little foam I did have was gone.

    Carbonation question

    I only left it in for 2 days. I've put the rest of the bottles in the refrigerator at the same time as the others. I'll sample the bottles this weekend. I think maybe I just became impatient.

    Carbonation question

    Sorry, I meant carbonated for 3 weeks. My refill was fresh . I'll give it a little more time.

    Carbonation question

    I recently brewed the Aztec Cerveza. I fermented for 3 weeks and bottle conditioned for 3. My house stays around 70 to 72 at this time of year. I used the plastic bottles that came with my kit. I used Mr Beer carbonation drops, 2 per bottle according to instructions. All this to say that I don't have a lot of carbonation in the beer. What can I do to boost carbonation?
  5. Has anyone here brewed a honey lager using Mr Beer extract? Any information would be great!

    Non Mr Beer kits

    Has anyone ever brewed beer using other beer recipes from other companies in their Mr Beer keg? Such as, Northern Brewer's kits?

    Another newbie question..

    Thanks again hotrod3539
  9. Is it normal, after 2 weeks in the fermenter, to have some stuff floating on the surface of the beer? Appears like some very small quantity of left over foam.

    Filtering before bottling?

    Thank you for the info guys!
  11. Do any of you run your beer through a filter from the fermenter as you bottle to eliminate possible sediment?
