  1. Hi all, I was at lowes today and I noticed a 3 gallon water jug used for water coolers new and full of water. I have a 3 gallon cider in a primary bucket that is ready to rack. I was thinking about getting one of those and using it as secondary, but kinda worried that it might make the cider smell or taste like plastic, or any other off flavor. What do you guys think?
  2. So maybe a half pound for three gallons? I don't want it real sweet, just a hint of sweetness. Woodchuck is a little to sweet for my taste. I have made cider with and without acid blend and I think it makes the apple shine through a bit more. So half a pound mixed with the apple juice? or at bottling?
  3. Hello all, I am going to be doing a 3 gallon cider pretty soon. Recipe will be 3 gallons of store bought apple juice or cider 4 cups of sugar Cider activator wyeast 1 lb of lactose. yeast nutrient Acid blend I have never added lactose to my ciders before, but this time I thought I would try it. So my question is, when would be the best time to add the lactose? Added to the must, or at bottling time?
  4. Probably Nottingham, or Muntons ale. Something clean to get a a base beer to add fruit, spices, different specialty grains, honey, etc... to.
  5. Thanks guys... I will let this one sit for three weeks or so and try a few. I have ordered grains to do a blonde ale for the LBK. 3 lbs Belgian Pils 1 Lb white wheat .5 oz Hallertaur 60 mins .5 Hallertaur 5 mins for a 2 gallon batch
  6. Hello all, I just bottled my Mr beer American light that came with the kit. I just brewed it the way it came. No grains or extras. It smelled like cider and tasted very bland as well. I am going to use my LBK for allgrain smaller batches and experimental batches, but wanted to brew the american light cause it was there. Soooooooooooo, my question is to all who have brewed the Mr. Beer American light, did yours smell like cider and taste bland? I have been brewing for 10 years (kits, extract, all grain) and never had a cider beer. Please give me some feedback. It was in the LBK for 2 weeks,,,
  7. "Kealia" post=340411 said:I'm 95% in compliance. As with everybody that isn't krausening to carb, that's my downfall. I will occasionally do a wit with the obligatory orange and corriander or use oak cubes in a beer once a year but other than that I'm a 4-ingredient kinda guy, too. You could always use DME to carb.
  8. Hello all, this is my first post. I have been brewing for about 10 years now off and on. Mostly extract W/ grains, some all grain. I am sizing down to 2.5 gallons instead of 5 to experiment with different fruit, spices, honey, chilli's, etc... I was wondering if any of you guys have any good all grain recipes using your Mr. Beer keg. This is my first Mr beer kit and brewed the light that came with the kit to get time and temps down. I am looking forward to doing experimental 2.5 gallon batches and if they turn out really good, do a 5 gallon batch. Also, I am wanting to lager some as well. Have you guys ever put your Mr. beer keg in a fridge to lager for a few weeks then take out, bottle, carb, and back in the fridge for conditioning? Please chime in with your recipes and tips.
