I bought six cans of UME from them and the shipping took awhile. Lucky I didn't need them for any planned current brews.

Isn't Mt Carmel in the nati?

You should be fine since you added the correct amount of water later.

I drank a trub bottle last night that was bottled on 11/4/12 and it was good. A little maltier than I like but good. My son who likes maltier beer was happy with the taste and wants a sixer to take back to college with him on Sunday.

Shouldn't be a problem. Hopefully you didn't shake the LBK too much.

Gardner I suspect, Hoke is close lipped.
Except when he is eating. Which I suspect is often.

Thanks. Need the recipes too.

Not drinking from the bottle. Drinking from glass. The half liter bottles are a bit too much for a pint glass, so I just use a 10 oz glass and fill it twice. Seems like I'm getting more beer that way, too, getting 2 glasses of beer out of a bottle instead of just one glass of beer. Just another weird quirk. Feels better to have the beer staying fresher in the sealed bottle than in the glass, even for 5 or 10 minutes, and sometimes I let a glass of beer sit much longer. This post is actually on the level, not joking around. I'm gonna try this out in the near future and see how it works. The fast chill thing proved to be very effective for those times when you need a cold one right away but don't have one. I hope this thing works good too.
Ok, I see. I only bottle 12 oz so one pour per glass. It sounds like your plan would work.

Umm I don't know. I always enjoy reading your posts and am left wondering if you are joking with this post. It can't hurt the beer to keep it on ice. I always pour the whole bottle, less a tiny bit on the bottom, into a pint glass so I wouldn't try your idea. RDWHAHB.

$20 for a two pack with one Classic Anerican Light and one Patriot Lager.
I'm thinking of brewing the Classic American Light and a pound of Golden Light DME along with a hop boil. Any hops suggestions? I have two 1/2 oz MRB packages at home but can't remember what type. I appreciate your thoughts.

Thanks for all the comments. Keep them coming.
Any other reviews?
I need to brew this one soon.

Welcome to the Borg. You made beer. Congrats.

My house. Everytime I'm there, I can get a free tour of the brewery, including samples. And a nice hot snack any time of the day or night, if I can wake up the wife.
A nice hot snack? Is that what the kids are calling it these days.

I just brewed the Diablo IPA as per Mr. B directions with no additives and have an OG of 1.052.
Same for me.
I suggest using corn sugar as opposed to cane sugar. Others may disagree, but I have found the batches I made that I primed with cane sugar to be soda like, large bubbles. All batches I made primed with corn sugar had beer/ale carbonation, fine carbonation.
That's been my experience. As I say, others may disagree, but I only prime with corn sugar.
It may be the amount of Booster I've used, but some of those batches seemed to be over-carbed, and I've been thinking I need to cut back. But it may be type of sugar itself.
I've heard DME is very good for a carbing agent, but I haven't tried it, and don't know how much is recommended.
Dave, how much Booster do you use. I assume you batch prime. Thanks

I thought I was going to be reading about a new burger chain. Carry on.

One of my favorites that got a lot of approval from my friends was:
2 Cans of HCCD
1 Lb Briess Sparkling Amber DME
It was just hoppy enough but not too hoppy and had a pretty good flavor. Between that and the Fallen Friar recipe my friend who was Bud Light only started to come around and like more beers.
I also added a bag of booster to the recipe a couple of times. With the booster there was always just a little alcohol taste to it. It was popular for the leaf burning day a friend has every year.
Brewed this one today. Thanks

Anyone have any recipes involving some DME and or a hop boil for the old Mr Beer HCCD 19 0z cans? I have several and want to brew on Thursday as the SWMBO has a work commitment and the kitchen will be mine. Thanks
