  1. Last week
  2. MRB has two new recipes, both featuring Kveik yeast. They complete fermenting in 3-4 days. They have limited quantities, so once the ingredients are gone so are the recipes.
  3. I’m not so sure that work isn’t the safest place for you right now, but it is nice to have you shake up the forum every now and then🍻.
  4. When faced with a choice to drive or not to drive to Vegas, I always err on the side of driving to Vegas. But I also make sure I have some extra bottles of water in the car. 😁 (I joke, but I did spend a few years stationed at Edwards AFB, CA, just a three hours' drive from Vegas...and I made that drive often.)
  5. It's 2021, you can simply identify as a woman and if they don't hire you call them misogynists and accuse them of a hate crime. Hurray for progress! 😏🙄 😊
  6. I’m working on my car and was wondering if this beer hydrometer can measure the density of my antifreeze percentage in the radiator full of water? I tried to measure the density of water in my oil in the engine but it was just too milky looking and I’m thinking I should go ahead a drive it to Vegas anyway!!!
  7. And to add, gonna get off my lazy azz and jot down those dates on the cans so I can get em outta here! What’s left over I’ll throw in the kettle like a potluck stew of creative beer
  8. I finally got a rotation shift at work that allows me to have 14 days off per month when I was originally getting 4 days off per month. Yea it’s hot hot summer, but I’m gonna brew everything I have!!
  9. So does Rick reply or has retirement got him?
  10. Hoppy, I’m glad it’s only the 5 of us left on this forum because I can only imagine the reactions from the uninitiated 🍺
  11. I used liquid nitrogen once, had this guy show up in a truck with a refrigerator tank attached. Pulled out this insulated spray attachment and sprayed my fermenter! It exploded and I used the super frozen chunks of beer as a compliment to my beers that I brewed that weren’t so successful. Nice thing about using liquid nitrogen, the metal fermenter exploded too, but since it was so cold none of the metal chunks contaminated the beer! So this is just one of my disaster turned to success stories of life!!
  12. What!!!!??? No Booster!! OMG!!!! I usually add my own concoction booster, 5lbs corn sugar per 5 gal . And depending on recipe, I might throw in 4 oz of malto dextrin.
  13. I know I’m not on here as much, believe me I be wish I had more beer! Oops I meant to say more time. Right now I’m drinking a buzz ball chiller, made in Texas by an all woman company. I’m thinking of putting on a wig, trim the beard down and go ask for a job there. What are my odds of successful hiring because I’m feeling it now! My zodiac sign tells me it’s time to get out of that stump I’m in and grab opportunities now!!
  14. Actually, I’ve used this method for last years Tank 7 recipe that those guys finally released, unfortunately, they have their own trademark on their yeast. I found a yeast that was compatible. I’ve used dycitel rest for a Wheatwine and a few ipas. And tried it out with a kveik.
  15. Your never too old! I’m not just talking about LME either! Even the MRI and the LWP ( liver wurst pie) and MRE and Btw, and the CTA is never too old to consume. Who reads labels anyway??? Uh huh.
  16. I was brewing a chinook ipa last week, must have konked out somewhere along boiling time, somehow I remembered to turn off the propane flame and did quite a few other things before passing out that I don’t remember either. The next day I go outside and frighteningly looked in the kettle expecting everything burnt, nope! There it sat ready for yeast pitching, unfortunately, I do remember during preboil I had 8 1/2 gallons. When I looked the following day it read 3 gallons. So prior to pitching I undiluted the stout version of the chinook with 3 gallons of water and pitched yeast. Another day and it’s ready for the keg.!!! Just a note for you newbies! When I’m Rome do what the Scottish did in 1957 during the condom prohibition days!!

  18. Plus to add, I just got my newest beer glass in the mail!! I loved it so much I bought the “ pair”!
  19. Ok, I’m back and still haven’t got all the dates, but the winter dark ale is pretty old, the cans have not expanded. 2013 is the date I believe, so think of it as an aged aged LME
  20. Earlier
  21. I contacted them. Thought I would have heard back by now. I think the Coopers bucket fermenter is identical. They have a replacement [spigot] tap that looks like it would work. I contacted them, just waiting to hear back. UPDATE Someone from Coopers [Mr. Beer] got back and said the Coopers DIY Beer Snap Tap is specifically for the BrewMax 6G. I ordered 2.
  22. I wouldn't hesitate to contact their customer service and ask for what size replacement is needed. They should be able to tell you and might even be able to give you a source for them. MRB's customer service is great and they go the extra mile to help the customer.
  23. In 2019 I bought the Mr. Beer 5 Gallon Home Brewing Fermenter and the spigot is starting to leak. Doesn't look like Mr. Beer is selling the 5 gallon fermenters [BrewMax 6G], let alone any accessories for it. I am hoping there are still others using the fermenter that might have had to replace the o-ring. I would think it could be easily replaced, just not sure of the size.
  24. i went ahead and crashed....now that i think about it @Bonsai & Brew, you're right. the only time i've done that was for lagers.
