  1. RIP, Jim.  You will be missed.

  2. My boss and the Manager who preceded me were the same way(use to give me a hard time). As a matter of fact my boss won't allow me to carry any MrB products, says he's been making fun of them too long to change now. Damn silly if you ask me, if I can get them coming in for the HMEs, I'll make other sales. This place is a toy store for adults, it sells it's self, all I do is answer questions.
  3. the stores here only carry the starter kit(Christmas only) no refills
  4. takes just as much work to make 1 gallon as it would to make 2. Just use the LBK
  5. In the fwiw department...I've found warm water (nice hot bath) isn't steamy enough to cause clumps on the bag and mixes easy. YMMV
  6. I would honestly suggest you try doing a couple partial mashes to "get your feet wet" so to speak. That way at least your whole brew ain't depending on how efficiently you can convert starch to sugar.(promise you it ain't going to be very efficient to start with)
  7. Make your own...say 75% dextrose 25% malto dextrin should do it. However IMHO RickBeer's suggestion would be better. Chase flavor, not ABV.
  8. I've tried to take a screenshot to send you wit win 10 ain't cooperating. Disclaimer: I don't like SA lager, so all I did was meet the requirements with equal proportions 1lb 9.6 oz of each hallertau to bitter(60 min) .5 oz 5 grams each hallertau/tettnang @ 20 min (flavor) same again @ 5 min (aroma). used Safe Lager 34/70 yeast, use 05 if you want an ale. My IBUs are 30.3, ABV 5.1. Don't know if it'll taste like a SA
  9. Yes, i.e. 2 row and Maris Otter. I worked it up in BeerSmith as a 2 gal American amber ale you can hit the numbers pretty close.(I don't monitor calories, so unknown) used .5lb 60L
  10. I find it interesting to hear that. When I started what you call the old (white) was the new(what I had) and the push button was the old. Several of the old timers bemoaned the loss of the old spigot(push Button.
  11. show the recipe...slightly confused here, you meant Crystal/Carmel 60L not Cara right? if you're going to do a 2.5 gal then .5 would be fine.
  12. Probably won't need more than an lb in a 5 gal batch
  13. Looks good, FWIW I used Melanoiden Malt instead of crystal.
