  1. I live in ohio but actually closer to michigan. Im from toledo. The Mud Hens our AAA team for the tigers, on there promotional schedule lists a craft beer night on June 6, July 5 and August 2, . Also the Toledo Zoo on September 20 has the ZOO BREW.
  2. Awesome news can't wait for the final review!
  3. Ok cool! Thats what I was thinking, but just wanted to double check.
  4. So Im considering splitting a 5 gallon batch between 2 LBKs. But I have a question that I havent found an answer too yet. Say I split the wort as close as possible and use the same yeast in each LBK. When it comes time for me to batch prime my bottles. Do I batch prime each LBK separately or can I combine both LBKs into my ale pale and batch prime it all together?
  5. Also just placed my order should have an lbk open in 2 weeks!
  6. "TheGrove" post=354566 said:rogergoochman, how did your raspberry wheat turn out? I just bottled it on Monday. And man my sample tasted awesome. I can't wait to drink it in a month
  7. I have my LBKs in one those cheap $2 throw away turkey pans. But I did the raspberry wheat and added a can of fruit right away and to the LBK and an additional can a week into fermentation adn it never overflowed.
  8. "BigFloyd" One other design mod I did on this was to set the pipes for the hose connections at a down angle. that way, if I get a little dribble out of one of the connections, it won't go anywhere near my wort.[/quote said: Makes sense i was wondering why you had them pointing downward
  9. I just brewed a modified version last week. BAA HME, 1#sparkling amber DME, 7minute hop boil with 1/2 oz williamette(my LHBS doesnt carry glacier), and will dry hop for 7 days with 1/2 oz fuggles. Ill let you know how it goes on bottling day(4/8) if you havent brewed by then.
  10. I give it a month or 2 tops and Ill switch to 5 gallon batches and save MB for more specialty batches
  11. Ive seen many beers with bubbles. Ive also seen those miller light glasses at bars with all the slots in the bottle of the glass to try and make bubbles lol
  12. please keep us updated, I think I might have to make this here soon as I get an empty LBK in a few weeks
  13. Ive seen people roll the coils around a paint can to get nice tight coils. Just a tip!
  14. No thoughts but curious how tasty it ends up being
  15. Sorry for you loss, its always tough to lose a loved one
  16. Im gonna do that same thing MVK. Going to the LHBS in 2 hours when I get off. And will brew this evening.
  17. Yup more time. I first tried one at 3 weeks and it had a slight apple taste to it. But at 4 weeks it was perfect. Crazy how only week can affect it.
  18. "mashani" post=351053 said:Use Wilamette as a substitute for the Glacier. Glacier is a bit more citrusy, so if you wish add just a pinch of cascade and it might be even closer. But just a small amount, IE if the recipe calls for 1oz of Glacier then use 3/4 of it and 1/4 of cascade or there about. But honesty you can't go wrong with a fuggles/wilamette mix. If i do the fuggles/Willamette combo would you recommend the 7 minute boil like ScottyP suggested or a different time. This will be my first time adding hops.
  19. I also batch primed since my first batch i picked up an ale pale and spigot for 12 bucks at my lhbs.
  20. These are the hops my LHBS offers(taken from thre website). With the brown eyed girl recipe it sounds good but it doesnt look like I can get my hands on the Glacier hops/ Ahtanum Pellet Hops, Amarillo Pellet Hops, Cascade Pellet Hops, Centennial Pellet Hops, Chinook Pellet Hops, Cluster Pellet Hops, Columbus Pellet Hops, Fuggles Pellet Hops, Hallertau Pellet Hops, Kent Goldings Pellet Hops, Liberty Pellet Hops, Mt. Hood Pellet Hops, Northern Brewer Pellet Hops, Nugget Pellet Hops, Perle Pellet Hops, Saaz Pellet Hops, Simcoe Pellet Hops, Spalt Pellet Hops, Styrian Goldings Pellet Hops, Target Pellet Hops, Tettnanger Pellet Hops, Tradition Pellet Hops, Perle Pellet Hops,Warrior Pellet Hops, Willamette Pellet Hops
  21. I have the Bewitched Amber Ale deluxe refill and I have some Sparkling Amber DME. If I add a pound of DME what are your hops recommendations and boil times. I wont brewing this until early next week some time. I have a LHBS that I can get hops from what yall think?
