  1. Looks good TS!! How do you like that Big Mouth Bubbler you have it sitting in? I have been debating getting one, but have not quite decided.
  2. #1 Damn Russkies got our beer!! #5 Transponder on our beer got turned off, it flew the wrong direction, and is sitting off the coast of Australia growing old and bitter.
  3. Thanks Rick. I had assumed so, but wanted to verify. Much appreciated.
  4. My last couple of batches, I have been rehydrating my yeast prior to pitching. I am wanting to see if there is any difference (clarity for the most part) between rehydrating and simply sprinkling on top of the wort. This last batch (Serf's Up), I did like I always do. Weird thing is Krausen started fairly quickly (4 hours after pitching) and looked like it was well on it's way. Checked it the next day and krausening had subsided already. Ambient temp is steady at 68 degrees and I am already seeing trub on the bottom of the LBK. This tells me (I assume) that the little beasts are doing their job. But would they have done it THAT fast? Anything to worry about? Thanks!!
  5. +1 to Raiderrob. Carb it in the bottle for 2-3 months at room temp.
  6. Not alot of info to work with here. Are you following the directions EXACTLY? If so, I would lengthen fermentation time to three weeks and carb time to four weeks. Does it taste like flat beer when you bottle? If it's more on the cidery side, that's normal for a young beer and should condition out.As far as over carbonation goes, I would advise cutting back a touch on the sugar. Instead of a teaspoon, go with 3/4. What recipes?
  7. ROFLMAO @ Rick. That was good!! And I thought beer pron was limited to pics.
  8. Most Excellent!! I just received a few recipes last week and was waiting for one of my LBKs to open up. One of them was the Serf's Up. Looking forward to brewing it in the not too distant future. I have never brewed with hops either, so I'm excited to "up my brewing game". LOL Congrats and happy brewing!!
  9. Awesome Minn-Okie!! Looking forward to using more and different ingredients. Hoping to up my brewing skills as well. Let me know how it turns out with the hop addition. Sounds like it will be great!
  10. Sorry guys. Guess I got over excited about having more choices and being able to step up my brewing. I apologize for my lack of knowledge.
  11. Hey guys, I decided to look at recipes last night and found that many Mr. Beer recipes now include hops. I think this is GREAT for any new brewers (or experienced ones) that want to graduate to more advanced ingredients and methods. I personally picked up six more recipes to try. :-) Take a look and happy brewing!!

  13. I had the same result with my CAL when I tried it. I also went about the same amount of time you did. It tasted like what a light beer should and had very little head. I'm not sure if everyone experiences it with the carb drops, but I got different levels of carbonation from bottle to bottle. I think you are on the right track and will see improvement with the more batches you do. Try to go the 4 weeks of conditioning if possible. Yes I know it's hard to wait, but all the vets say it makes a big difference. Happy brewing and good luck!!
  14. This may not be the place to ask, but was unsure where to post. If I have a Voodoo recipe that I want to enter into a competition, would it be considered an American Amber Ale due to the extract used? Or a specialty beer due to the fact that brown sugar was added? Any new brewers participated in a competition utilizing the BJCP 2008 guidelines? If so, how was it? Thanks in advance.
  15. Welcome to homebrewing!! Looks like you are getting a lot of the same answers, so I won't add too much. The one thing you can use to cut the drops is a pill cutter found in most grocery store pharmacies. Might make the job a bit simpler and less mess.
