  1. are you useing water from your house or are you useing spring water because your house water may have something in it to make it taste bad I would try useing spring water and make sure your keg and bottles are cleaned real good before you sanitize them you should disassemble your tap assembly between uses and wash in warm soapy water ( unscented soap )
  2. I have a batch of the cowgirl honey also .It has been in the bottle 4weeks now I dont care much for the ginger taste .I dont think I would do this one again. and if I did I would leave out the ginger .at first the beer taste good I when you have that ginger taste that just comes on and blows it . so my advice and opinion is to leave the ginger out and try some kind of can fruit like cherrys or cherry juice 100%
  3. Beer-lord= How long have you been conditioning your batch of st pattys Total of weeks that is.because I would like to know how long to let my sit up. I have 2 batchs of st pattys 1 with cherry juice and 1without that I bottle on the 4/12/13. THANK YOU AND CHEERS!!!!

Well I just did a taste sample of my st patty I have 2 batch brewing 1 plain and 1 with cherry juice.The 1 with out the cherry juice is tasteing fine it is going to be a very good beer.The 1 with the cherry juice has a little tangy taste but it has only been brewing for les when 2weeks but I think it will be okay. But I know 1 thing it will be drinkable. So let the brewing gods do there work. So have another beer and wait.Im brewing now.CHEERS. BEER BREWING IS THE BEST HOBBY I EVER HAD.
  16. the 1st time i brew a batch of beer I used blackberry in some aztec mexican cerveza and what a mess I used a booster in it too and at 1st everything was fine and about 12hours later it went wilded i thougth by keg was going to blow up and my wife was going off and to top it all off i had to go to work and she had to keep looseing the top for me it settle down in about aday but that was my 1st brew with fruit but overall it turn out to be 1 of best brew to date so hang in there it may be. 1 of your best . IM HAVEING A BEER NOW SO HERE TO YA. CHEERS!!!! HAPPY EASTER.
  17. yES i NO WHAt YOU MEAN,mINE DID THE SAME THING ,YOU HAVE TO JUST LOOSING The top and letting out the gases and keep cleaning the little vents with some sanitize cleaner with a paper towel it will be ok. It will settle down in about 24 hours ,but you have to keep letting the gases out so your lid so it don't blow off hahah,, That was funny what you said ,,you put your ear up to it ..don't maen no harm by laughng. Sit back and have a beer and wait it out and i will have one to .and Cheers
  18. Strelnikov Did you have any overflow after addin the cherry juice.I had a little but it settle down after a day. let me know how thing go good luck. CHEERS!!!
  19. I thought I would brew both of the st patty at the same time so I could know how the st pattys real brew tasted without the cherry juice.and i will see how i like both and if so I may try the honey.lets see what happens.But thanks again for the tips. I have been looking at the new spring brew Mr. bEER has I Think im going to order it. I have 4 batchs brewing now the 2 st pattys 1classic american and 1american porter.
  20. Well I went and got some from the store.They fit in the plastic Mr.Beer bottles.The cubes are 1/2 inch. 1cube =9/10tsp.and 3.60grams of sugar. I got a small box of 126cubes for $2 so I think i will try a few bottle with both Mr.Beer and a few that I bought from the store and see which one works best.CHEERS!!!!!
  21. So they are like sugar cubes like you can buy at the grocery store.
  22. Has anyone used the Mr.Beer carbonation drops for bottling and how did they like them to useing sugar for primimg. And are they real sugar? CHEER!!!!
