    You live and you learn.

    I can't believe you left that much....geesh, wasteful.....hehe, seriously, that is some dedicated extract removal

    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.
  7. 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.

    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

    Shameless stout

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

    No Foam?

    What Shrike said.....however (there is always a however).....as you read you will see there are better ways to accomplish what the boosters do....just read, read, read

    Mad Ludwig's Marzen

    Hey, congrats on 3000.....wait.....it's now 3001 so the moment is gone

    1st taste American Lager

    That there is a mental image I could have gone my whole life without......thanks for that

    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.

    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.

    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.
