  1. Ok. I just bottled up 23 12-oz. bottles of Patriot. used the 1/2 tsp Domino sugar cubes. I'll give an update of the taste when its ready. Mine kegged for 3.5 weeks (went out of town) Right now its sitting in the stairway closet staying dark and cool.
  2. Ok. So I found 1/2 tsp. Domino Dots cubes in my local Publix. So much easier, though I had to press some through the 12 oz bottles, lol. Just bottled up some Patriot Lager tonight. I'll let you know how it goes.
  3. Cool. Thanks again guys. I think I will be getting a box of those Domino dots! http://www.walmart.com/ip/17768249?wmlspartner=wlpa&adid=22222222227015521753&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=c&wl3=18152185510&wl4=&wl5=pla&wl6=40014176350&veh=sem
  4. saw earlier where someone said they cannot taste the difference in table sugar vs. the others.
  5. What's the latest on the use of the Cooper carbonation drops? Is there a difference between the two in these links? One is 11$ and the other is 6$ http://www.amazon.com/Coopers-Brew-Products-Carbonation-Drops/dp/B003E5ZYB8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1377479545&sr=8-1&keywords=cooper+sugar http://www.amazon.com/Coopers-Carbonation-Drops/dp/B0064OALVO/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1377479629&sr=8-3&keywords=carbonation+drops Anyone use them, or is using loose priming sugar better? I had been using just table sugar, but I wanted to try something else to see if it produces a cleaner taste. I bottle to 12 oz. bottles by the way. Thanks!
  6. Cool Thanks to all! I'll be kegging it tomorrow night. I'm hoping the 1/2 tsp. sugar does well for it. The last batch was the Classic American Ale, and there was a big difference in head and taste using 1/2 tsp. and 3/4 tsp. the 3/4 tsp. just was way to carbonated. I felt like I was drinking champagne.
  7. Hi all, Just looking for any recommendations on Patriot Lager. I just finished up a month ago bottling the Classic American Ale, which turned out well. So I'm just keeping ahead of the game. I figured I would keg it for 3 weeks, and then prime it for 4 weeks. Anyway looking for any recommendations. Also will use 1/2 tsp. sugar per 12 oz. bottle.
  8. For you guys that bottle prime, do you prefer white/table sugar, corn sugar, or do the carb tablets work well? I'm about to start on my Patriot Lager.
  9. Well after letting them carb up for about 3 weeks, I tried both 1/2 and 3/4 tsp. The 1/2 tsp has the taste I was looking for. and now after 5 weeks, the 1/2 tsp. still tastes good. Just enough carb for what I wanted.
  10. Thanks RickBeer. Bottled up the beer tonight. got 22 12 oz. bottles. did them about half an half with 1/2tsp and 3/4 tsp sugar.
  11. yeah I just actually finished putting the Beer in the Keg. thanks for the recommendations. I was just reading through some of Rick's posts on sugar amounts. I think I may do a little less this time, as far as the sugar. 3 weeks in the keg, and then i'll let bottle em up. thanks a bunch brewers!
  12. yeah sorry lol. I meant "light" did a nice strikeout. Is the same amount of sugar also recommended as stated on the HME can? (2.5 teaspoons) I did the amount on the initial IPA that came with my set, and it seemed WAY too carbonated. Thanks all.
  13. I'm going to do the classic american lager light, and was looking for user recommended Ferment AND Bottling times. Its default is minimum 7 days ferment, and 2 weeks in the bottles. What are your recommendations? I will search through the forums also. Thanks!
  14. Thanks FIT! I've been browsing through the links and searching the forums. I think I'm gonna chop back the sugar a little on the next one and see what happens. I can't wait to experiment a little more with ingredients.
  15. I finished off my liters of the pale ale that came with the kit. to me it had way to much carbonation. It felt like a soda lol. I read to cut back the sugar some to eliminate this issue. I'm going to do either the Patriot Ale, the American Ale, or the Classic American Light next. Any recommendations on cutting the sugar back on these? I'm not ready to start adding anything else to these batches, unless its really that easy, but I would like to know the opinions on whether or not to not use the recommended sugar amount on these next batches. Thanks!
