  1. I got my LBK at Canadian Tire for $20!! What a steal!
  2. I used wal-mart basic unscented baby shampoo stuff. Leaves a very minimal beer smell in the LBK, and no smell at all in the PET bottles!
  3. Its taste resembles nothing of an apple. Just bread and water, with a hint of weak craft beer. I guess we'll see! Diablo IPA is now in LBK, with a couple pieces of cardboard under front to prevent trub from going through spigot on bottling day. Will definitely try cold 'word escapes me right now'-ing it to promote clarity and the settling of 'schtuff'. My American Light is transluminescent, but cannot see my fingers moving behind it it's so cloudy.
  4. So, I took 5 bottles of American Light out of fridge, and put back into conditioning mode. Would this do anything to make taste better?
  5. Thanks for the quick reply! I read that the 3-4 rule is pretty standard for any beer MR. BEER sells. Just wondering if there were any tips/tricks/revisions anybody has for specific refills.
  6. ALSO, I found the Forum section and started reading posts by RickBeer and JoeChianti. Very helpful. I discovered the 3-4 rule, which would have been nice to know BEFORE I started my first batch lol. I'd like to know what other people have done as far as ferment temp/time, carbo temp/time, etc. for the refills I have right now. Thanks
  7. I bought an LBK a while back, and brewed the American Light that came with it. I followed the MR. BEER included instructions TO A TEE (correct temperature and sanitizing while brewing, ideal ferment temp and time, exact amount carbo drops and ideal carbo temp and time). I chilled the beers in the fridge for two weeks, like it says to do. It was after tasting my almost unenjoyable "liquid bread" that I figured it was just because it was American Light (light beers are a waste of hops) and there must be a reason they toss this kind in with your kit as a 'freebie'.. So I looked online and found a bunch of awesome sounding refill kits and didn't hesitate to order some beers that I myself would buy at The Beer Store (you guys in Ontario will know what I'm talking about). I received them yesterday and am anxious to get some more brewing today. I got Grand Bohemian Czech Pilsner, Diablo IPA, American Ale, Northwest Pale Ale, Pale BrewMax LME SoftPack, along with a Professional Bottling System. ANYWAY, long story short.. Some cans are bigger than others. Can I use them all in my LBK, or do I need to split into two batches, or get a bigger fermenter?
