Linebacker Doppel Bock w/ Mellow Amber Deluxe Kit
Galena Pellet Hops and use just a forth of the package.
Safale S-05 Yeast It will turn out a little better (read that as stronger) than Shiner but maybe just enough to improve your sons taste in beer. Yes, I realize this is a very old thread but I'm interested in brewing this. I can't find the "Linebacker Doppel Bock w/ Mellow Amber Deluxe Kit" anywhere, has this been discontinued? Was it just the Linebacker and Mellow Amber UME or was something else included? Also Galena Pellet Hops is no longer available from Mr. Beer, could I use it from a different source (such as this one: http://www.amazon.com/RiteBrew-Galena-Pellet-Hops-oz/dp/B003BD8X7K)?
All of the old base and deluxe refills have been discontinued as MB is rolling out new Coopers based products. However, you can probably find the Linebacker base refill (HME+booster) on Amazon. The pick up some amber LME/DME in place of the mellow amber UME. Galena hops should be available from any number of online stores.Chhers! Excellent, thanks very much for the quick reply!
