Received my kit today.... one small problem..... its missing a pack of DME smooth and the muslin bag :(

 

EDIT:: Called MRB Customer Service.. Talked with a Very nice guy Named Josh (could it be one of our very own moderators?) and he is shipping the missing items! No muss no fuss! THIS is why i will always be a MRB customer.

It doesn't really have a name (Mr. Beer Amber Ale). It's a version of our Bewitched with some DME and Goldings hops. It's exclusive to Amazon when buying the 6 gallon kit.

I had suggested "Tabitha".  Perhaps someone could set up a vote to give the recipe a name.

(note........corrected the spelling)

Would you recommend any changes or is it good brewed straight up?

I am gonna brew it straight up.... that way I know if I like it as is or if I want to change things up such as different hops, steeped grains... different ME...so on and so forth...

I made it, it's still conditioning, but it tasted good when I tried a sample.  I'm thinking of changing the DME to LME Robust, and the hops from Goldings to something meaner like Apollo, then instead of Tabitha, I'd have Endora.

The one question I have about the 6 gallon kit is the fact that the fermenter is not brown, like the LBK's.  I'm keeping direct light away from the fermenter the best I can, but, it's not as light-free as I'd wish.  Do these tubs filter out the bad rays of light as well as the LBKs?  If not, I'll put a towel around mine (I'm doing a brew with one right now).  If I don't have to worry too much about the light, then it's kinda cool to watch the fermentation process.

a bit more research on the Mr. B's web site, they say "UV-resistant fermenters".  So I guess if I don't put the thing in direct sunlight, I should be safe.  The room that the fermenter is in has only white-light LED lighting.  Side note, if you want to watch the three-week fermentation process, these tubs are perfect.  If someone wants to film the process, please post.

Yeah, just keep it out of the sun. Your indoor lighting won't put off enough UV light to harm the beer, even in a clear container (I brew in clear glass carboys all the time).
