    ATTN. MR BEER STAFF Australian Sparkling Ale

    ok I am going to try it and get the yeast from MB. I don't mind waiting but the great thing about the seasonal is that as soon as it carbonated it was amazing despite what the directions said conditioning didn't do much it was just as amazing 2 weeks after bottling than 2 months but i am crossing my fingers that this one will be close enough. I do not mind a little bitter. This may actually be even more like my fav FOSTERS PREMIUM ALE so i will try thank you guys for all the research and info.

    Does it come with the same yeast as the seasonal did? What is the abv if using the enhancer in 6 gallons?

    Well I am sad to see it go I just hadnt had the money to buy more and now I will. This was my favourite recipe because it was amazing just as soon as it carbed which means i didnt have to condition it too much. In fact it tasted amazing right after fermentation just didnt have carbanation. and it is the closest thing to Fosters premium ale that you guys have and I love that and this too.

    Heavy Mcwee Carbing Question

    So, My heavy Mcwee has been bottled for two weeks now. The bottles are not completely firm, they are firmer but not hard like a rock like my other brews have been. I followed the directions for using table sugar for priming. Just wondering if it takes longer for this recipe, IF not I may need to question the caps on my brand new PET Bottles? Or does using table sugar change the process as far as time or anything? It was the first try at table sugar as i used the drops before.I search for my answer but did not find anything recipe specific.

    I searched the forum and didn't see this asked so if it has and i didn't find it i apologize. I know the cans of refill can be stored at room temp and i know the yeast can be stored at room temp or in fridge to make it last longer and i know grains and fresh ingredients require the fridge but what about lme? What is the proper way to store lme? I just ordered some and i have had them sitting in my art room for 3 days, it made me question if i am not doing something important.

    Australian sparkling ale tinkering?

    I love this refill but sadly it is going away so I am Thinking of getting 2 cans and playing around with it. Was wondering what would suit this better? Something like adding lme Or fruit or maybe a cup of honey? Maybe something I am not thinking about? What are your ideas. I am not advanced to partial mash yet so I won't be doing any of that just adding simple ingredients. Any suggestions?

    My Beer is Cloudy

    Exactly what I was trying to say but you said it less confusing I think.

    My Beer is Cloudy

    As soon as your able to cold crash i would it really does matter. just put the LBK in the fridge for 3 days is all you have to do and bottle while it is cold really clears it all up.

    My Beer is Cloudy

    Here is my advice for what its worth as I do not have the experience that the above members have but I am speaking from recently learned situations. 1. Cold crash for 3 days 2. Clean spigot before you bottle with sanitiser 3. when bottling do so at an angle so you have no air bubbles (even better use a wand if you can) 4. condition longer than you think you need to. 6 weeks should be the best I usually go for 4 because I am impatient. 5. When you chill your bottles let them set for 3 days i learned this one on my own not sure how the others feel about this but it seems to taste much better after 3 days. 6 do not get discouraged if you american light does not turn out the way you thought. This was my least favourite so far and my first but most is probably due to being my first. y second was Octoberfest and it was amazing. 7. read read talk to these wise brewers on the forum and check out the feeds on twitch they will answer your every question even ones you didnt know you had.

    How does Mr. Beer create new recipies?

    Josh a few months ago I suggested an asian style (rice beer) and you seemed interested. Any progress on that?

    New to this and wanted some help.

    From what I read however you CAN give bottles away to friends or co-workers as gifts but serving at functions other than a private party at your house is agaisnt the law. I wish someone would challenge the law at least in TN that would allow the sale of Homebrew in bottles not to be consumed at the sale location but the ability to sell per bottle at fairs and farmes markets I don't see why this couldn't be a law. Of course there would be many many admendments to it such as abv etc and it could be a tough sell to state Senate due to age limits and the Brewers being responsible for underage sale etc but it is a thought.

    This is the only hobby I done where everyone is so helpful. Try asking some artists and crafter's how they do something and they'll someti!mes say its a secret cause they don't want others to do it for some reason

    Octoberfest plus sugar

    I added a cup of brown kayro against many warnings not to and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar it was good. So far from what i am feeling at least for me if I am going to experiment it will be with octoberfest

    Found 2 old cans

    Once upon a summertime Just a dream from yesterday A boy and his magic golden flute Heard a boat from off the bay "Come and play with me, Jimmy Come and play with me. And I will take you on a trip Far across the sea." But the boat belonged to a kooky old witch Who had in mind the flute to snitch From her Vroom Broom in the sky She watched her plans materialize She waved her wand The beautiful boat was gone The skies grew dark The sea grew rough And the boat sailed on and on and on and on and on and on. But Pufnstuff was watching too And knew exactly what to do He saw the witch's bold attack And as the boy was fighting back He called his rescue racer crew As often they'd rehearsed And off to save the boy they flew But who would get there first? But now the boy had washed ashore Puf arrived to save the day Which made the witch so mad and sore She shook her fist and screamed away. source: https://www.lyricsondemand.com/tvthemes/hrpufnstufflyrics.html
