  1. I'd really like a can or two shipped to me so that I could give an unbiased review.
  2. I used the same weizen yeast cake for 4 or 5 batches.
  3. So that's what I got left. I was thinking of doing one of the following 1.) 1 LBK size batch using 3 cans of American Devil IPA and then another LBK with 1 can American Devil and 1 can OVL. 2.) 1 LBK using 2 cans American Devil and I LBK with 2 cans of American Devil and 1 can OVL 3.) Add all 5 cans together and split them between 2 LBKS so that each batch has 2 cans American Devil and 1/2 a can of OVL 4.) Just do 2 normal batches of American Devil, then get some additional light LME and mix it with the OVL Let me know what you would do. I know #4 is probably playing it safe, but I like to experiment.
  4. good luck, man. keep a close eye on them so that they do not burn
  5. did you do anything special? i'll be brewing this up in a couple of weeks....
  6. "Trollby" post=268183 said:EIther DME or Amber LME will work. The other good Bock is the 2Hellen Bock OVL + Pale LME or DME + Honey I like only 1 cup honey and 2.5# Pale LME with the OVL and Hallertau or Tettnanger hops So are you saying... 1 can OVL 2.5 pounds of LME 1 cup of Honey how about those hops? do you do a boil with the lme?
  7. good stuff http://forum.northernbrewer.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=82858
  8. That sounds delicious. I am all about the pecan. Austin homebrew has a pecan extract that they sell. I was planning on going with that, but if using fresh toasted nuts is better, I would love to know.
  9. Animals. The lots of ya! You must be giving the stuff away
  10. I got the 2.5 tailgate draft system. It doesn't come with a regulator. It seems pretty well made. The lid is a little difficult to get in and seal with confidence though. I am naturally carbonating this time around with 1/3 cup of sugar, but I'm already certain that I will want to upgrade to a force carbonating system.
  11. The rest of the stuff came in today, so I suppose they came through in the end. A frustrating experience, but all is well.
  12. I'm sure that they have gotten plenty of orders right, and made plenty of customers happy. It just so happens that on my first experience with them, my order was screwed up. Kudos to those that have been pleased with your results working with Rebel Brewer thus far. The item at hand was also a gift from SWMBO for my birthday, that has now passed, so it upset me even more that they failed her just as much as they failed me.
  13. Just ordered 2 refills of it...pretty stoked.
  14. Never had one but looking to buy a few before they are gone forever. Let's hear everyone's favorite. For those that have tried both the Grand Bohemian Pilsner and the Pilot House Pilsner, I am interested in hearing which one is more preferred.
  15. Trollby, about how far up do you fill up the system? How much headspace should I have left?
  16. I wouldn't know how to purge the air and replace it with C02 using this system. I figured it was as easy as adding sugar to build up the C02. Would I need to use a C02 cartridge to purge the air? I believe that I can force carbonate with this system as well, I just don't have the means to
  17. So I ordered the 2.5 gallon tailgate draft system from Rebel Brewer, and it came incomplete. The only thing I got was the keg itself. It is also supposed to come with "Pocket Charger, Gas Disconnect (MFL), Liquid Disconnect (Barb), 4ft of 3/16" Beer Line, Picnic Tap, and ten 16 gram CO2 Cartridges". My question is whether or not I can fill the keg and naturally carbonate without the rest of the parts, then just add the other parts when they arrive in a few days. My beer has been cold crashing for 3 days now. I suppose I can leave the beer in the fridge for a few more days, but I would love to get the beer carbonating. What ya'll think? Wait for the rest of the parts or go ahead and fill'er up?
  18. I finally got a hold of them, and they said they would ship out the remaining parts today. That's great and all, but when I spend $150 on one item, and it's my first time dealing with a company, I expect my single item to arrive complete. I suppose if this was my third time dealing with them and the first time that they messed up, I would be more forgiving. Hopefully the parts arrive in a timely manner and I might be willing to give them another chance in the future, but I'll probably be sticking to Amazon or Austin Homebrew Supply.
  19. Don't bother. Ordered a keg system from them and it came incomplete. Now I am having a hard time getting a hold of them to explain to them their own error. I have 2 LBKs in the fridge full of dunkelweizen that I was hoping to keg, and now it looks like I am going to have to bottle 40+ beers on my own, yet again.
  20. Sorry to hear that. I was worried you might be talking about the 2.5 gallon kegs that use co2 cartridges. My gf just got me one of those and I am anxiously awaiting it.
  21. Didn't jump on it after all, I figured it wouldn't be good for drinking until December since its pretty much summer until then in south texas.
  22. The outcome will have a lot to do with how they were stored. If they were exposed to prolonged heat, it will be fare from a pale ale.
  23. Been making some Dunkel Weiss myself. 3 cans OVL 1.5# Wheat LME 1 Booster pitched over Weihenstaphen yeast and split between 2 LBKs
