    My Nuggett and Chinook are doing well, look about like yours. Mine took a beating from a storm right after putting them in the ground, think I have 1 dead and 2 hanging on for dear life. We'll see how it all goes.

    Looking for a Christmas beer recipe

    Thanks for all your responses to my response. Obviously there is more than one way to look at this and we all don't have to agree. Was interesting to see what everyone had to say.

    Looking for a Christmas beer recipe

    Is it just me that thinks people taking someone else's recipe and submitting it to contests is wrong? Someone else put a review on Mr. Beer saying the same thing. I don't even see why someone is proud to win a contest when it isn't their creation. Maybe I'm just not with the "cool kids" on this one.

    Tangerously Hoppy IPA at 68 degrees. Too hot?

    well, he COULD tape ice to it, and just stay awake constantly taping more on, maybe it would work..................the mental image is priceless either way

    Rhizomes from buyhoprhizomes.com.....tried to get magnum, but they sold out of them early

    Nugget, Sterling, Cascade, Chinook, and Columbus. Live in Marshfield, so roughly due west, very slightly north of Green Bay. The Nugget has 4 bines over 3 Feet high growing in the pot and I've cut back the others (has had over 8 bines at one point and they have only been in the pots for a couple weeks). This one will be first in the ground. All of them are growing, we will see how they do once in the ground. Using "Just Natural Organic" potting soil and getting the same brand of garden soil to replace the clay outside. Wife just informed me she has arranged for a Centennial rhizome, so that will be on it's way.

    I bought 5 rhizomes, all different varieties and they are growing in pots on my dining room table being as how the temps outside have been dipping below freezing still....looks like last night was the last (according to the forecast), so trying to start putting them in the ground today......this should be interesting, me hanging out of the second story window trying to string a steel cable across to put the string to.....and then there is the rabbits and squirrels I have to keep off them. Yeah, this is gonna be real interesting to be sure.

    My LBK leaking

    What I do constantly is the nut on the inside has one side completely flat, other side has a very slightly raised area. If the flat side is not against the keg, it leaks until I turn the bugger around. Something to consider

    All grain noob here.....

    What happened to you as a child?

    How does Mr. Beer create new recipies?

    Yeah, you guys throwing something together makes something good....if I do it, it will result in a disgusting mess that means I either try to stomach the disaster or throw 40 bucks or so down the drain....for the record, I have NEVER put any beer down the drain

    How does Mr. Beer create new recipies?

    I cannot believe you trashed and defiled my childhood memories of pooh bear....really.....how could you....now, I'm gonna have to drink more beer and try to forget this atrocity

    My order arrives today!

    I am soooo not going there..........heh, maybe I just did........see what I did there?
  14. SilverBrewerWI

    You live and you learn.

    Strong cider taste

    Nah, he probably saw it on nick at night or something, as opposed to me who saw it on one of the 3 networks the antenna on top of the house picked up before they invented cable

    RIP LBK 2015-2018

    Please tell me you gave him a proper burial with a beer bottle headstone....man, I am all choked up. Lets see, what will cure that...oh, more beer.

    Octoberfest plus sugar

    Hey Dan, don't mind Rick....I would never add table sugar and neither would Rick and probably most of these guys. But, and there is always a but, I am a firm believer in "it's your beer, and if you like it, it is the right thing to do". With that said, mayhaps you try using DME/LME or booster one time and see if you don't like it even more.

    American Lager First attempt

    Looks like you are going to have beer....welcome to the madness and read, read and read

    What Now ?

    There is also the benefit of seeing your beer.......we eat (or drink) with our eyes first and actually seeing the beer in the glass can change your perception of the flavors.
  20. I hope you plan to put the broadcasts up as videos for those of us that work on networks that don't allow us to do things like look at beer stuff.

    New Brewer

    ROFLMAO.....I was studying his post looking for the profanity Rick was referring to....silly me

    Anything to keep it going......he could be lurking and you pointing out his inactivity may have hurt his wittle feewings.

    Back after a couple of years away

    Welcome back......I didn't start back then, so I only know the good Mr. Beer, but this place is still an excellent source of info

    Shameless stout

    Yeah, I just pitch the whole thing. One thing I do when it's not mr beer yeast, and I have no idea why I insist on doing it really (I just do), is I rehydrate before pitching. Even the manufacturer says it doesn't make a difference and I'm using double what I really need, but it's just what I do.

    Hand Bottle Capper

    Seems someone on here posted about the Super Agata and I've been trying to figure an angle. SWMBO was going to let me get the Agata and I sat there looking at it and then said "nope, I need the Super Agata, it's a must have". I thought that would spur someone to search and buy it, no such luck. Now, how many flip tops do I need to buy before she decides a bench capper would be cheaper...hmmmm
