  2. Hi all, as I sat at work today the only thing that went through my head was this weekend I get to bottle my howling red and after 3 weeks fermenting why has it created yeast colonies , and should I cold crash it for a few days? I guess my question is what causes yeast colonies to form on top of beer and should I scoop them out with a sanitized spoon befor I bottle
    Thanks for the help.

  3. Ok all after 3weeks LBK and 2weeks in bottles at room temp and 2 days in the fridge just cracked open my first Aztec. Beer has nice clear appearance, good smell but the taste is a little grapefruit after taste not a real good beer. So I know I opened this a few week early is that why it's giving off a grapefruit taste?

  4. Welcome to the group I would pull it from the fridge and let it condition at room temp for a few more weeks. They say here to leave in LBK for 3 weeks and condition 4 weeks at room temp. Not real sure on adding suger to the wort that's a new one to me but their are people here that can answer your question a lot better then me.

  5. Hi beer people a quick question for you. I'm getting ready to do a 2gallon batch of caribou slobber. The question is can I make this by putting all the ingredients for a 2gal batch in just one gallon of water. And have the other gal of water in the LBK. Do the fact that I don't have a big enough pot to boil the full 2gal

  6. Harley hawk just finished brewing this one. Every thing went well hope it turns out good. And your right dose not seem to be many people interested in this brew I myself think this will be a great one. Think I might just have to buy another batch sence I still have 1LBK empty

  7. Ok all today is brew day doing the howling red ale. My question is in the brewing with mr beer book it says to add 1/2 honey. But on the brew instructions and on the mr beer web site I do not see anything about adding honey to this mix. So I'm confuse honey or no honey ? What's your thoughts.

  8. Hi to all out their in brew land your thought please on Jamaica mon. My next batch will be the beer in question I have read many diffrent opinions on this beer from its real good to it real bad. So what can I do to insure a good beer

  9. Ok so it has turned out to be a good day. To start with had my sons first T-Ball practice and just found out that I have won the 2 new LBK that I have been bidding on from eBay. This will bring me up to 3 LBK 1 batch formenting and when the new LBK show up I already have kits for both of them. It a very good day

  10. She is a light beer drinker carona yuk. But for her it's more about the money I spend. So far I have 1LBK one batch brewing I have bought 2 more batches to brew and now am in the process of trying to win 2 more LBK on e-bay. I guess maybe I do go over board sometimes. But what a better way to spend a week end day than by making home brew. :woohoo:

  11. Thanks for the welcome all. It been a long winter so I have kept myself busy making high spirits apple pie shine a big party hit and also got a gallon of blackberry brandy that turned out awsome. Can't wait tell this first batch of brew is ready.

  12. Hi all new to brewing I have one batch fermenting it's been on for two weeks with two more ready when LBK is empty. Wife not real happy about it because I tend to go over board whin I start a new hobby but hay I love beer so this is a hobby for me
