    Shameless stout

    I had a similar experience with S-04.....pitch it and off to the races...I was very happy with it.

    1st taste American Lager

    I put my LBK in a cubbyhole that happens to maintain 62 ambient. I was really worried I didn't have it warm enough until I got through my first batch. Little did I know I was doing exactly the right thing. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than smart.

    Cold crashing - what it is, and why do you care?

    Cold crash doesn't hurt.

    Bottle cap issue- Help!

    I looked at mine and think the rings are the issue. Looks like they are a tad too wide, breaking all mine off and getting seals now

    Horse's Ass Ale

    I've read a lot of the recipes, never seen one calling for white sugar. Can you be a little specific, that sounds real weird unless you are talking about rootbeer or something like that.

    New Brewer

    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.

    Ummmmm, when exactly did Miller become beer?

    Suggestions-Thoughts ?

    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.

    Bready beer?

    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.

    Bottle cap issue- Help!

    And I thought I had just been wussy and weak on tightening mine.....hmmm

    Cold crashing - what it is, and why do you care?

    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.

    Slow Ferment?

    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.

    Forgot to sanitize spigot

    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

    Forgot to sanitize spigot

    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.

    Is this batch infected?

    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.

    Purified Water VS Tap Water

    I kind of get what people say about not using distilled water, but my RO water isn't much different than distilled, and I make good tasting beer. So really, I am not quite following the tap or spring water only mantra. All I know for sure is if I use my tap water, you'd need a chisel to break off pieces of the beer after it all solidified from it's liquid rock state.

    This kit

    Whatever it is, it has been a month. I wonder if he sat there staring at the message board going, answer me, answer me, answer meeeeeeee.......no, probably not, but I do wonder what he brewed or didn't.
