  1. Thanks again. Tried it out tonight w/ 1 oz o Willamette at boil and 1/2 cup maltodextrin. Just hoping for a more solid brew than the first time I tried it. Kevin
  2. Thanks for your response. I'm just trying to add flavor/aroma a little bit of the regular refill. I brewed it once before and it didn't have much character to it. Kevin
  3. I'm planning on brewing the standard Mr. Beer Czech Pilsner refill tomorrow and I have three hops on hand: Cluster, Williamette and Galena. Would any of these be worth adding? Kevin
  4. Thanks for the feedback. I'm still just brewing with the refills and the LBK. I will read some of the recipes to get a better starting point. Thanks, Kevin
  5. Any suggestions using the LBK w/ one of the basic refills. I was thinking the St. Patrick's stout adding some chocolate and maybe marshmallow fluff or a marshmallow syrup/flavoring at bottling. Something along these lines... Kevin

    Just some pictures of the beers I've brewed so far using the Mr. Beer LBK.
  7. Anyone have a recommendation for a Smores recipe? Kevin
  8. Yup, a little less than a teaspoon seems to work best for me. Kevin
  9. Thanks - that's what I was thinking. It's a one pound bag so I was figuring I'd split it up between two batches. Kevin
  10. Picked this up today and was hoping to use it with two basic recipes. The first one would be a Pumpkin Spiced Lager: -Oktoberfest refill -8oz of the extract -6 oz pumpkin puree 1/2 orange zest 1/2 tsp cinnamon And the other would literally just be adding it when making the basic Oktoberfest refill. This is the Plain Amber extract Color 8 Lovibond so I'm thinking it will work OK with these. And to confirm - only about 8 oz should be used for the LBK 2 gallon batch, correct? Kevin
  11. This has been one of my favorites. Looking at the notes I keep, I had it as excellent at Week 4 and did not note any marked improvements at Weeks 5, 6 and there on out. Kevin
  12. So...would a standard refill or recipe work in this since it's only gallon? Kevin
  13. I actually consider that pretty kind of her to pour the beer into the solo cup! Kevin
  14. Thanks for the review. Have often thought of trying this recipe, but never pulled the trigger. I like malty beers so maybe I'll give it a try. Good luck on the Diablo IPA -- that's been one of my favorites! Kevin
  15. Well, I didn't have high expectations, but the Blackberry Grape Wheat concoction I tried a few months back came out very nicely if you like fruity beers. This one is about 60 days conditioned. Slightly hazy, slight white head, smell reminds me of some type of fruity candle you'd get from the Ice Cream man as a kid -- closest I can think of is that of a pack of Sweet Tarts or something. Anyway, got Grape Brewer's Extract and this is what I did with it.
