  1. So I stopped into my local Home Goods the other day and I picked up a floating thermometer for taking boil temps. My question is: Is there a big difference in preference between the floating thermometers sold at the homebrew stores and a regular meat thermometer or does it matter which one I use?
  2. I recently found a few of the old Mr. Beer extract cans online but when I picked them up they were passed their expiration date. My question is: How long beyond the expiration date can the cans be used?
  3. Hey everybody, still new to this homebrewing hobby of mine and I had a couple of questions that I could use some help with: 1) How many uses can you get out of a Mr. Beer LBK before it's time to toss it out and replace it? 2) How many times can you use glass bottles before it's time to send them to the recycle bin? I'm sure that these questions have been asked before so if you could direct me to those links as well that would be much appreciated. Thanks for the help.

    Has anyone

    Tried the Sutter's Gold recipe? I really would like to try to make California Common/Steam Beer style beer and was wondering if it would be worth it to purchase this recipe. Thanks for the help
  5. Hey how's everybody doing? Ok so I just picked up a can of the old Whispering Wheat Weizenbier and I wanted to add some different yeast to the mix but I'm not sure what the best yeast would be for my beer. Some help would be much appreciated. Thanks for the help :chug: :barman:
  6. :chug: Hey everybody a quick question here, I'm still new at this: I have two cans of the old Whispering Wheat and some boosters, how much of it do I need to make a standard two gallon batch in my LBK. Appreciate the help. Thank you. :cheers:
  7. Thank you for the advice. Perhaps a little more info on my part is needed. I had read up on the forum that allowing the beer 3 weeks in the LBK and 4 weeks in the bottles was recommended so I followed that. The last two bottles that tasted of apples were actually left in the bottle at room temperature for 2 extra weeks before they were put into the refrigerator.
  8. :cheers: So I feel completely awesome now that my first homebrew has been tasted and reviewed by my family and friends. They all seem to like the Classic American Light which was great for me to hear. I do have one question, however, did anybody else have the Classic American Light tasting and smelling like apples after all the fermentation and carbonation were done? One final note, I attached a picture of my finished beer. It tasted delicious.
  9. Gentlemen and lady thank you for the help. I too have used Oxyclean Free per the wonderful advice I have received here in the past. I'd been wondering for awhile if these pads were any good. Now I know, and like G.I. Joe said, knowing is half the battle lol. Sorry that mighta been too corny.
  10. Sorry I tried to put the link in there but it's not coming out the way I planned it so here is the link to the product http://morebeer.com/products/white-scrub-pads-3.html
  11. Just curious if anybody has used these scrub pads from MoreBeer and if you have how did they work? http://http://morebeer.com/products/white-scrub-pads-3.html' target="_blank" title="http://http://morebeer.com/products/white-scrub-pads-3.html">
  12. "FedoraDave" post=324685 said:I find that asking if a beer is good is like asking if a song is good. What I like may not be what you like. Everyone is different in their likes and dislikes. What I've learned about beer is that, while tastes are subjective, and what I like or don't like doesn't impact another person's likes or dislikes, I can still recognize a well-crafted beer. Or a good beer recipe, in this case. My feeling is that all of the Mr. Beer refills and recipes make good beer. Whether a person likes them or not can't be quantified. That's YODA wisdom right there, thank you Dave
  13. I'm new to this too and I gotta say that I've never felt attacked by anyone on here. I enjoy reading all the responses to my posts and I feel that I learn something new everyday since I've joined up in this community. BrowncoatMal is right about having patience, it does suck having to wait but it is a great lesson for making beer. Trust me even with a "better" system you will still have to be patient with your beer. I'm glad I started brewing with the Mr. Beer cause I've learned more about brewing from this community than I might have learned from just jumping into the brewing process on my own.
  14. Quick question on the spigot disassembly: Does it come before or after I fill the keg with water and oxyclean
  15. Khawk95, I too have Oxyclean Versatile Free. It's the oxyclean with free in the name I've seen at Walmart
