  1. Ill be brewing 5 gallons of partial mash this weekend, using Wyeast 2112, and Mr. Beer American Light Extract. I'm actually excited to try it out. If you want to check it out. http://counterbrew.blogspot.com/
  2. I mixed a Chardonnay and a Saison. 2.25 of Saison (all grain for the MR Beer love the small batches). before bottling I added 500 ML of a Chardonnay that I made last year. One of the best beers I have ever had. I will be making it again, and again. Everyone who has tried it loves it.
  3. Have you ever made a Champagne Pilsner? Pretty easy and if you have an LBK it is a snap. I would just use 5# of the pilsner Saaz Hops at 60, 30, 0 (.33 oz each) I prefer Wyeast 2112 (california lager) it ferments at ale temperatures no problem (you have to aerate) or Fermentis 34/70 You can ferment primary (till krausen falls) at 65 F, then into a fridge for 3 weeks... Boom! clean crisp clear lager. I did something similar and posted about it on my blog. http://counterbrew.blogspot.com/2015/09/you-can-go-all-grain-lager-with-your-mr.html
  4. I've been working on a clone of "Not your fathers Root Beer" But I cant say it is ready for release yet. Ill search some forums and see what I can find. I'm intrigued by the recipe posted above.
  5. I have written a series on All Grain Brewing in a Mr. Beer LBK for my blog Counterbrew. I love the LBK. And the ingredients are so much better now that coopers is involved. I think Ill do a series on Partial mash brewing for the Mr. Beer LBK.
  6. Hello to all, I have been brewing beer for 25+ years. I am going to be posting some recipes here, and offering help to any one who wants to learn to brew with the Mr. Beer Fermenter (LBK). I am a fan of the LBK, and really a fan of just about all of the equipment that Mr. Beer makes. My basic philosophy is that you do not need to spend thousands or tens of thousands of dollars to brew great beer. And also 2 - 2.25 gallons of beer is just about the perfect size to brew. The ingredient costs are low, the water impact is much lower, the results are great. So feel free to ask questions, and share your experiences as well. Mr. Beer is a great thing even if you aren't using their ingredients, the equipment is great common sense equipment. Is there any recipe or type of beer that people really want to see a recipe for?
