  1. I'm down to my last few bottles of Shameless Stout that's been conditioning since September. I know it almost sounds cliche among us but this beer has gotten so much better with time! A solid stout to try if anyone has been debating.
  2. I love doing partial mashes, but my work schedule doesnt always allow me to. A regular extract comes in handy in how quickly I can make it up. Strangely enough though, American Ale deluxe is one my favs, and that's after having done many partials and doctored extracts.
  3. I knew exactly what I was going to do, but the wonderful lady at my LHBS talked me into this purchase because she was out of citra pellets. Lol
  4. What's the best way to deal with whole hops? I've got some citra that I'm going to dry hop with.
  5. I have an Imperial Red Ale that has been sitting 366 days. I just put it in the fridge.
  6. I cant say for certain if it does or not. I personally hadn't noticed. I know that honey sure as heck does though.
  7. Every time I place an order I add a few boosters in with it. I use them in everything almost. No risk way adding a little bang per bottle Imo.
  8. What's the highest attenuation you've gotten? Mine was 81% on my Let It Bee Honey Blonde Ale.
  9. It came out pretty good, but if I had to to let it condition awhile because it ended up being 6.6% ABV and it tasted a bit boozy at 1st.
  10. One pound of light DME, not one CAL of DME.
  11. -One CAL HME -One lb of DME -Two booster pouches -One oz of Willamette Hops (10 min boil) -US-05 yeast O.G 1.069 I called this "Harvey Special" because it was fermenting when the hurricane hit down here.
  12. I've had that one, I did enjoy it. I've got Shameless Stout fermenting now.
  13. I think it's funny how nobody can name just one!
  14. What are y'alls favorite Mr B batches? It's hard for me to decide. I really like the American Ale, both standard and deluxe. Sir Kenneth Blonde Ale is solid in my book too. Whispering Wheat Hefe was my 1st partial mash, I loved it as well.
  15. I've probably made 30 batches, or close to it, and I'm scared to graduate to glass. Lol, maybe someday.
  16. I dont dislike it, but with one full teaspoon there's no room for era it seems. I've had many bottles get "stretched" during conditioning, and one just plain exploded. Now that one I believe fermentation was stuck, but still.
  17. I have reused it immediately before, but that's it. I mean literally bottling a batch and making another with no break.
  18. When I bottle a batch I usually pour the sanitizer from all the bottles into one of my LBKs and I just leave it until I need the fermenter again. I usually make up fresh sanitizer before I brew again, but just curious, could I just go with that used sanitizer if the LBK hasn't been opened at all?
  19. You cant draw any conclusions about the final flavor from a sample you tasted during fermentation. It will change so much in the next 5 weeks. It's your 1st batch so I know you're anxious, but try to leave it alone. Remember, every sample you pull will take away from your yield.
  20. I have this recipe waiting to be brewed. It may be my next batch. I'm excited about it so I hate to hear you've ended up with a bad result.
  21. I use 16 oz bottles 90% of the time, and I always go with one teaspoon of sugar. I really dont have an issue with that amount of carbonation, but so many of you seem like it less carbed, so I decided to give it a shot. I've bottled a batch with 3/4 of a teaspoon. We'll see how I like it in about a month, lol.
  22. I usually do, but I'm learning a new position at work and that's where most of the focus is. I just whipped up a quick standard refill to pad the pipeline.
  23. It's not that bad, just a few days.
  24. I all but forgot I had a batch in one of my LBKs. I checked my notes and realize that thing should have been cold crashing already! I wasn't always patient enough for such a thing to happen, it's kinda cool! Lol
