  1. In Brew Masters, Dog Fish Head said that they take a beer from concept to the pub in 3 weeks. That's decent craft beer. I always wondered if it was true or just a bit of injected drama as the show followed him through the process.
  2. Before you throw out the bug you really should squeeze any stolen beer from the carcass back into the LBK.
  3. All great comments here, and I would never disagree with Fedora Dave. I would submit, however, that the original recipe listed in this thread is basically Belgian Blanc with a tiny bit of vanilla. It isn't exactly mad scientist territory. Having said that, I still agree that starting out basic is best.
  4. Next time just cover your video camera with saran wrap and point your tripod at the bottles. I would love to see a slow motion video of a bottle bomb!
  5. Sounds very good to me, JubiBeer. If you go too deep on the orange peel you'll get more bitter peel than sweet, depends on your preference. Also, coriander is important but very strong in my opinion, I would avoid any temptation to go over the 1/2 tsp. that you've planned. Please let us know how it turns out!
  6. In terms of a straight up Mr. Beer recipe, she might like Belgian Blanc. I'd say to get closer to Blue Moon, follow the recipe, but go really light on the coriander.

We all have these great setups and then we all shove something under the front end! The cardboard under the kegs came in the Mr.Beer kits. You just forgot to install the tilt kit they included. Here's what I use... It's 2 "Brewing with Mr. Beer" books, folded and taped together. No disrespect intended, but I get a book in every order, I have tons of them.
  8. The unit could definitely be moved easily. I use Velcro to hold it on the outside of the fridge, but you could just rest it somewhere if you don't want to tape or Velcro for now. My sensor is taped to the inside of the fridge. I set it at 62 degrees, wort in both kegs reads 66 degrees. JJ's idea of putting it against the LBK is smart, but I don't ever need to touch mine, just leave it there. To each his own.

    "zorak1066" post=382653 said:in fact thats what it means in german 'yeast wheat' beer. I didn't know that, but you are correct!Definition: Hefeweizen is a cloudy wheat ale that originated in Germany. The direct translation is hefe-yeast weizen-wheat. Yeast in the name refers to the fact that this beer is unfiltered and remains cloudy thanks to the suspended yeast. This yeast also contributes the unique banana and clove qualities to the aroma and flavor of hefeweizen. Thank you Zorak!
  10. My wife has a drinking problem and I have a brewing problem. We're either the best match or the worst. :ohmy:
  11. I didn't drill. I just taped the wire tightly against the fridge and into the door. The molding around the door fits over it nicely.
  12. Mine have a similar area in the back, like the molded plastic was folded over on itself. I'd say if it's not leaking air in or out it's not a problem.
  13. Welcome! Don't give up after that original recipe. Learn from it and then go for that Porter!
  14. I have to cast a vote for the non-digital one (linked below). It's about $20 cheaper and it's just 1 dial. I dialed it to 62 and it's been 62 in my fridge ever since. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002EAL58/ref=oh_details_o03_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
