  1. Merry Christmas everyone,it's the day after Christmas and I'm happy to report that the Christmas Beer came out OK. I guess that month of contitioning really smoothed out the flavor. Had the whole family over for Christams. In-Laws, kids and grandson. Everyone had a glass ( except the grandson ) and said how good it was. They all had a different opinion on the first then subsequent flavors, ginger, cinnamon, clove or almond. The cherri puree was always an after taste though. Thanks for everyones help, signing off.
  2. Well... bad news gents. I just started bottling and took a small taste. There is a small vinegar taste and it's a little bitter. Smells good though. I'm going to let it condition for the next month. Hopefully it will smooth out for Christmas.
  3. Hi Everyone, Thanks for the advice. Just finished. Smells good. Can't wait til Christmas to give it a try. Signing off!
  4. Hi Everyone, I'm going to start this afternoon, 1 quick question, the recipe does not call for the booster. Should I add it or not? Thanks for your help
  5. Another quick question, what size of a can / jar does anyone recommend. I wouldn't want to overpower anything with too much cherry mix. The reciepe doesn't say how much to add. Thanks everyone!
  6. thanks for the tip. Just looked uo cold crashing, I'm going to give that a try.
  7. I plan on brewing up some christmas ale. 1 quick question on the cherries. Do I add the syrup AND pureed cherries or just the cherries. Thnx.
  8. I'm goin to give it a shot. Couldn't hurt I guess. I have some October fest I want to try next. Any advice? Thanks crazybrody!
  9. We caught a heat wave right after I started. Lasted about a week. I would put the keg outside at night to cool off. It got down to 74 by morning and up to 81 at the most by days end. The second week was 72 to 78. Are you thinking it's pretty much gone? Thnx sorry for the typos, fat fingers and old eyes
  10. I just startd my first batch,Cowboy Lager. It's been 14 days now fermenting and the sample I took is still cloudy and yeast tasting with a very small amount of bubbles. The best temprature range I can get is 77 to 81 degrees, thats room temprature. Is this too hot for fermentation? Should I wait another week? Thanks for any advice. Cheers!
