  1. 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.

    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?

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
