    Exactly -- just nothing too special on its own.  Definitely adding hops next time.  That's probably all it needs to make it a little tastier.

    I think the traditional Pilsner though does not use dry hopping, so you would need to boil or steep them and then take them out to get a similar traditional effect probably.

    i had a friend come over yesterday and basically drink all my beer (store bought) then says, i gotta go, got some things to do, if he had his own brewed beer it could be different. I've tried dozens of times to go over to his house and set him up with a Mr. beer kit, hell give him a complete free kit at that!! Nope, he doesn't have the time.....

    Good deal, at least he is not drinking the homebrew :-)

    u know I brewed a 5 gallon northwest just recently very similar to the Santa Rita, and it was by mistake mostly, when referencing the recipe by comparasion to mr. beer recipes it was basically identical

    Did you taste it yet?

    Mine is fermenting but yeast is nowhere near so active as the Coopers in my 3 dark ale variants.


  4. Half off is good.

    The cost of the 6 gal (3 batches) I made using Cooper's Dark Ale can will be $18 + maybe another $16 for assorted DME, LME and hop adds. (which I did not get on sale and all are small quantity buys)  So that is another way to go if you are making  larger batches and can get them on sale.  Even cheaper if you buy bulk on add ingredients.

    Of course, I did not taste it yet, but it was probably made in the same plant as Mr B HMEs so will be fine.
