  1. Welcome to the hobby. Read, read and read some more. My first batch was, well, drinkable beer not great. Second batch outstanding. There is a learning curve and second guessing yourself is normal. In the end, relax and enjoy your hobby and your beer. Oh yeah, read some more.
  2. Ummmmm, when exactly did Miller become beer?
  3. Looks to me like you got it all squared away. Hey, welcome to the group. Oh, I don't use any soap on my beer glasses and I never chill the glass. That is my preference, if yours makes you happy, march on and make more beer.
  4. Picture if you will, mother yeast at the trubside of little baby yeast, "I don't feel good mama yeast", so the dutiful mother yeast pulls out the yeast thermometer and takes his yeasty temperature. Ahhhhhh, a veritable beery Norman Rockwell moment brought to you by Malt, grain and Mr. Beer.
  5. Congratulations, you made will like it better than what you used to buy
  6. I'm sorry, this forum is for Mr. Beer. Are you looking for the Mr. Winnebago forum?
  7. Welcome to the obsession, as Shrike said, ton of good info on this forum and lots of people willing to help.
  8. And I thought I had just been wussy and weak on tightening mine.....hmmm
  9. It also compacts your trub and reduces the amount of trub you get in your bottles. so, yes, you get benefit no matter the style.
  10. There are 3 very big "don't do it" items in this forum: 1) never throw away beer with a possible exception of it being deadly, but most would rather you drink that too 2) never boil HME 3) never insult, ummmmmmm what was his name again, oh yeah, never insult rickbeer - never, ever, ever. The first two are easier to forgive, but even they will get you a visit from the top secret beer police. Seriously though, welcome to the forum and your new wallet draining obsession. Yeah, you will be eating, drinking and sleeping beer very shortly - happened to us all.
  11. my wife wishes I washed anything else as well as I do my beer stuff....and sanitize..........ok, I know where some minds just went, get out of the gutter or no hops for jou
  12. No, I think you will be fine. Before bottling, use a spray bottle to put some sanitizer up the spigot or use a shotglass of sanitizer to get it up there, just to be safe. Relax and enjoy the beer.
  13. Unless you are one with the LBK, concentrate really hard and the additions pass through the solid lid in awe of you. If you make that happen, you will be an LBK Whisperer.
  14. Welcome and keep reading, there is a huge wealth of information here.
