  1. Welcome BStump! The beer needs more time then "beer in 14 days" to be honest. Most of us here do the 3-4 method. 3 weeks in keg, 4 weeks bottle at room temp (2 for carbing, 2 for letting the flavors blend well), 1 week in fridge. So really, its 7 or 8 weeks...patience is the most important tip for any new brewer.
  2. I too have a HCCD to use. I was going to do either old of these old recipes: Heartbreak Healer-Archived There's nothing worse than a broken heart, so, as a public service, MR.BEER® has decided to offer a cure for those unfortunates. It's strong, tasty and like most lonely folks, it's appreciated more with friends. RECIPE: 1 Can High Country Canadian Draft HME 1 Can Pale Export UME 1 Packet Dry Brewing Yeast (under lid of HME) 1 Packet Centennial Pellet Hops 1 Muslin Hop Sack 1 Packet No-Rinse Cleanser or Father's Day Cream Ale-Discontinued Instructions The perfect beer for Dad on a warm summer day. This refreshing pale golden cream ale gets its clean bite from the Glacier hops. RECIPE INGREDIENTS: 1 Can High Country Canadian Draft HME 1 Pouch Booster™ ( I would use a light DME) 1 Packet Dry Brewing Yeast 1 Packet Glacier Pellet Hops 1 Muslin Hop Sack 1 Packet No-Rinse Cleanser or Vanilla Cream Ale: 1 Can High Country Canadian Draft 1 Pound Pale UME (in place of the booster pack) 1 Packet Glacier Pellet Hops (1/2 oz) 1 hop sack 1 Bourbon Vanilla Bean Packet of Nottingham Ale Yeast
  3. Joe....not cool dude! But you are right...i better be making some solid beers and locking them up at that point!
  4. Remember, you can do any kind of brewing with the lbk; hme all the way to ag. I like the small batches and ability to grow as a brewer at your own pace. Being that my life is getting full, with 2 kids under 2, a wife, dog and full time job...mr. beer allows me to "brew" once a month without too big of a time commitment. Then, in 18 when they are gone I can raise myself to Ninkasi!
  5. +1 on the cooler with frozen/hot water bottles. You can get the temps right where u want them quite easily.
  6. OG was 1.063 and today (19 days later) its 1.020. Qbrew projected 1.011. Is this an major issue? I wasnt going to bottle until sunday if I got a simular reading Also, it had a small aftertaste of alcohol. Would this be because I squeezed out the oatmeal hop sack into the wort? Thanks and brew on!
  7. you do what you gotta do man...gl2u personally, I feel that the mr beer procedure will teach a person the basics of making a good brew and the process (which can be fickle). a great batch and you'll be able to make it again and add a new element to make it better. a batch that you don't like, that's only 20 bottles you wasted.
  8. "FedoraDave" post=299168 said:I always say that your first taste of your first homebrewed beer may not be the best beer you've ever tasted, but it will definitely be the most satisfying. +1! My first WCPA was a "beer" but not super....just give it a few. I learned so much from those first few batches.
  9. Nice work! Better start brewing so you have some for youself!
  10. I see my brewing recipes changing (becoming more complex) but I am going to stay with the lbk. I like the size, cost factors. Also, 22 beers is a nice amount. It allows me to try different styles.
  11. 21 days in lbk, 6 weeks in bottle (at room temp), a few days in fridge and enjoy!
  12. They are $10.50 on the website now...$6.50 and I would load up! How did you get that price?
  13. Put it the back of the pantry, and try to forget about it for awhile. Drink other beer to kill the time!
  14. IMO, upgrading to the deluxe or packerduf's suggestions will make a better beer. The standard MB recipe are nice but for a few bucks more, but I think you will be happier with the result.
