  1. Sorry I meant trub. Thanks bp. Had a brain fart.
  2. Oh I think I had the same issue with my WCPA. Don't worry, you shouldn't have any issues. Taste is going to be the most important aspect. I believe it's krausen sticking to the side of the bottle. You'll be fine. Here's a link to my post when it happened to me. http://community.mrbeer.com/index.php?option=com_kunena&Itemid=124&func=view&catid=8&id=231818 There are pics that may show the same thing you have.
  3. I've only named one batch(from three) so far. It's called Hagemann's Hefeweizen after my great-grandfather who came to the U.S. from Germany. I plan on naming my beers from now on, unless I use a standard recipe.

I've done exactly the same thing. The birthday is in a couple of weeks and all I'm hoping for are enough gift certificates to feed the habit... That's not a bad idea. My wife usually agonizes over what to get me for my birthday. I think I have some ideas. BTW I'm thinking about brewing more than drinking, but I still enjoy the drinking part :evil:
  5. OK so the "licorice" flavor DID go away. The beer was just green and needed time. I suppose this will teach me to be patient.
  6. Thanx Dave. Those suggestions will help a FNG like me ask more intelligent questions that will help all of you experienced folks not want to drop kick your computer. I may copy and paste this elsewhere so I can reference it when I'm in a panic. Cheers Jeff :evil:
  7. @ bpgreen, yeah I found pop top Grolsch bottles at a local grocery store. I suppose I'll try one of each and see if they carbonate properly. 24 oz. is a small sacrifice for a worthy science experiment MUAH-HA-HA-HA!!! :evil:
  8. Oh yeah. I made sure EVERYTHING was cleaned, my OCD wouldn't let me continue otherwise. No one else noticed it so it may be me being overly critical. I suppose I'll keep checking, somehow I may have gotten some nasties in there. I certainly hope not.

  10. It's on the inside. I noticed it was only on a few of the bottles so it may have been sediment from the last bit I bottled. I tasted one I had in the fridge and it had a black licorice flavor to it. Not real bad but it was there. Other than that the color, clarity, carbonation and overall flavor was OK. I'm kinda assuming they just need more time to condition. The saga continues....
  11. I'm currently using the colonna bench capper(on loan from my brother-in-law). It works incredibly well. I'm short on space and it isn't a hassle at all. I was wondering about capping import bottles. I have some Newcastle and Grolsch bottles I'd like to use but I'm not sure about the caps. I know it's somewhat off topic but do I need different caps or should I just toss the bottles and call it done? I want to make a Northern Brown and experiment with light shock to see how it affects flavor(ala Newcastle) Thanx!
  12. I have plans to purchase more LBK's and eventually move into carboys. My brewing space is limited now but I spent at LEAST 3 hours alone at work yesterday thinking about equipment, recipies and so forth. My brother-in-law and I had a hour and a half conversation about yeast and pitching rates about a week ago. I don't call it obsession, I call it advanced interest! Cheers!
  13. Well they're brown streaks about 1/8" long right under the shoulder of the bottle. I tried to upload pics with no luck. Besides the pics were kinda bad quality. Hard to see brown streaks in a brown bottle in a pic. Gonna check the bottle I cooled when I get home this evening. Here I think I figured out what I did wrong with the pic.
