  1. I have read many prior posts, just wasnt sure about that much time. Very glad I waited. Thanks!
  2. This past spring I brewed a batch of MB Bavarian Weiss. It tasted pretty bad, almost undrinkable. It has been sitting in my beer fridge ever since. I just opened one, and much to my amazement, it was really good, nice flavor and a great head. Is this normal for a beer to get that smooth after so much time or did I just get lucky? By the way, all the other beers I have made, tasted good after 3 weeks in the LBK and 4 weeks hanging out at a temp in the mid to upper 60's. I'm also new to batch priming, can't wait until I try the first batch of that.
  3. Thanks. I will have to get a slimline, or bottling bucket.
  4. Thanks, I will definately give it a try on my next batch, already sitting in the LBK.
  5. I'm very new to brewing my own beer, in fact I just bottled my 5th batch yesterday. I was wondering about batch priming. By the name I can figure out what it is, but is it better, do I stir the primer in the LBK? Any help would be appreciated. Would sugar be as good as the drops for batch priming?
  6. I'm right next door to you, Sound Beach. Getting ready to bottle my Oktoberfest on 9/7. Just hoping it comes out as good as my Patriot Lager.
  7. I made the Patriot Lager for the first time recently. In fact, This is the first week after the 4 weeks of carb / condition. I am very pleased with the result. I did the recipe as is. 3 weeks in the LBK. I put them in 12 oz bolles with 3/4 tsp of sugar. I found the caronation very good for my taste. I'm sure you'll be pleased with it. Enjoy.
  8. I just sampled a bottle of Patriot Lager. The batch spent 3 weeks in the LBK, and 3 weeks carb/condition. I followed the LBK directions to the letter, and am very proud of my third attempt at making beer. Can't wait until one more week passes so I can enjoy the rest of them. I don't post much on here, but I read a lot of posts and answers...Thanks to EVERYONE for answering others questions that are helping me out. By the way, I just finished getting octoberfest going. Looking forward to tasting that this fall!
  9. Northern Brookhaven Township. Very new to brewing, experienced consumer.
  10. It's only been in there for a week.
  11. Although I'm new to brewing beer, I've been drinking it for quite awhile. The first batch I made was the Aztec, that came with the kit. Not overly impressed with the taste, but I think that was my fault. It was a little chilly inside when I was making it. Now I'm trying the Czec pilsner, since it is a bit warmer. Where I have the brewing set up is about 70-71 degrees. It has been 1 week to the day, and the bubbles have almost stopped. Is that a little quick for the fermentation to stop? I don't want to rush it, and I am a very patient man. I also don't want to ruin it by waiting too long.
