  1. Thanks haerbob3 and Time Traveler. What about using the honey at bottling time? I was thinking about that too, that would give me the honey flavor intesnity what would that do to the body? What if anything wouold happen if the honey was used for carbonation?
  2. It has already been pasturized, but I'd be adding it to like the last five minutes of my boil anyway. Meant to type wildflower honey. Got it from my LHBS here in Norfolk.
  3. Good Evening to the Borg, SO I have an idea for a Honey Porter partial mash using the following ingredients: 2 cans ot the old Mr. Beer Black Tower Porter 16oz. U.S. two Row 4 oz. Briess Chocolate malt Dry hop 1/2oz. Glacier hops in Secondary 8 oz. Wild flower honey 1tsp. Irsh Moss The old Mr. Beer Fromunda yeast Expected measurements: O.G:1.060 F.G: 1.011 SRM: 23 Hopville has the IBU's at 27.1 but I'm pretty sure it would be higher. Final ABV: 6.5% I've seen a lot of other recipies out there but looking for a good long lagering time for this one. I also have one can of American Porter that I might make up to do a side by side comparision. SO let me know what you guys think. I haven't brewed it yet so let me know. Thanks :cheers: Doc
  4. I just saw this. I too use Hopville if you haven't found the answer in the Hops section of Hopville while your calculating or recalculating a recipe, it will give you an option to add, just type in MrBeer. For the hops addition it only gives you West Coast Pale Ale (pre Coopers stuff 22 IBU's). From there you just need to play around with either the amount of Oz.; A.A.; boil time or use. Typically I will play around with the boil time (0-10 min., depending on recipe style) or the A.A. (if you do the A.A. make sure you get it to 22) Hope this helps! Happy Brewing Doc
  5. Welcome to the Borg and Happy Holidays!
  6. Okay, so I'm getting ready to start brewing again after the holidays Anyone in Hampton Roads Virginia looking to get together or swap brews let me know. Happy Holiday's :chug:
  7. I would have a beer too, but I'm up early to drive back down to the new house. Glad to hear your doing good.
  8. So I got to look at the bottles and they are #1 PET. On another note, how is everyone doing tonight? As for myself, I'm good drinking my version of King's Nectar.
  9. Which is why I figured I'd ask. Plans changed so I'll know the answer to whether or not they are PET1 next week when we move.
  10. Sorry got busy with moving stuff yesterday. Answers to questions: They are full bottles of drinking water. right now I am talking about the Plastic PET bottles in regards to a secondary fermentation/ conditioning bottle, (one time use) Russki, I have to take some more stuff down to the house tomorrow, so I will look. Speaking of the PET plastic, aren't the LBK's PET2? So if they are PET1, they would be good
  11. So I am asking the Borg, the house we are moving into, my friends left about 10-12 full five gallon deer park drinking water bottles the kind you find at the water cooler. Anyone use it? Anyone use it in brewing and/or as a secondary? Just curious.
  12. Yep, I used to own a house in a town in southern VA. At one point it had two restaurants, two gas stations and a grocery store. The house was right across the street from the Methodist church, with rang the bells. Nearest big town was like 15 miles in either direction. Helped me appreciate small town America
  13. Well never thought of brewing that way, Has anyone ever tried using the 2.5 gal water jug? Thanks for sharing Mashani
  14. While I don't always get the dimple, I haven't had a problem with the Sam Bottles I use either.
  15. SO as the subject line says with me getting ready to move and everything else going on i was wondering if anyone has some in site on these two HME's. Because I plan on making multiple batches of both Jamaica Mon and my Honey Nut Brown and i am open to suggestions.
