  1. Why not https://www.mrbeer.com/thomas-coopers-preacher-s-hefe-wheat-refill-pack alone in your LBK, or https://www.mrbeer.com/wild-wheat-recipe with a sachet of US-06? Personally, I'd either try the wild wheat route first.or substitute a Canadian Blonde HME for the CAL. From the description it doesn't sound like it would need the steeping grains of the Lock Stock and Barrel. This is probably a @Nickfixit question.
  2. Welcome back Hoppy. Nice job hijacking @MiniYoda's post 😃.
  3. WOW. Just WOW. Can anyone tell me if the Big 10 has cancelled football this year? I'd ask Rick, but he probably doesn't remember what that is.
  4. I use a 10 gallon cooler mash tun and have never attempted BIAB. Are you able to twist your bag rather than trying to squeeze it? Asking because I don't know.
  5. I have had nothing but crap Wyeast smack packs. All of them well within their best viability dates. I've got two different local stores. I get better results from White Labs, Imperial, Omega or dry. If I can make a starter, I will.
  6. Ever drink a beer that was black as a moonless night but it had absolutely no bitterness? Been puzzling me for a couple years but I think I figured out how they did it. https://www.williamsbrewing.com/4-Oz-Sinamar-Natural-Coloring-P2651.aspx
  7. A guy at my LHBS demonstrated this calculator to me. Seemed simple enough. https://www.homebrewtalk.com/forum/threads/ez-water-calculator-3-0.261001/
  8. My kit told me to add LME. Where'd you get yours?
  9. If I send a water sample to you would you return a report to me? LOL. Some of the reviews start off reading like slams against the level of accuracy, then they give it 4 or 5 stars out of 5. Not sure what to think.
  10. It's even sold frozen at the grocery. You can take it home and ice down your souvenir beers at the same time. Win-win.
  11. Just going to drop this here. Apologizing in advance to those who don't allow FB to sell ther personal information. The article/study says 30 breweries. In reality it's 40+ https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10156467147156852&id=97098306851 https://smartasset.com/checking-account/best-cities-for-beer-drinkers-2019?cjevent=18d97c581d5611ea809600f30a24060c&utm_source=cj&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=cj__falc_test_1&utm_content=Skimlinks&utm_term=Follow+This+Link
  12. Goingfrom memory, wasn't Anthony a middle age high school English teacher? I hope he didn't get into trouble (he didn't seem the type. How many wild English teachers have you known ) or suffer a health issue. Hoping somebody lurking or Anthony himself can enlighten us.
  13. Just read this. Guess we all must live and learn.
  14. @Creeps McLane, if "your location" is your home, several times I might have been only a couple blocks from you. Been 18 months since my last delivery to Appleton or picked up a load in Ashwaubenon or DePere, but damn.
  15. Welcome back. Never thought I say this, MY GAWD IT'S GOOD TO HEAR FROM YOU! Where and how have you been?
  16. This has bothered me for a couple weeks. Maybe the others are just too polite to say anything. I think your pictures were uploaded in reverse order. That temperature looks more like your last sachrification rest... I feel better now. How'd that sample taste?
  17. I was all packed up to brew at my niece's home this morning (that blueberry maple...I'll stop there with my description). Got a text, they've got the flu. Rescheduled. Maybe next weekend.
  18. @RickBeer, at the risk of embarrassing myself , prior to the sale of NB to Big Beer,haven't you already brewed this once or twice before?
  19. I received a MrBeer kit as a regift. It had been in a hot attic for several years. Yeast was still good. Dry yeast is tougher than we're lead to believe.
  20. I've been told a packet of Truvia in each bottle will also work to back sweeten. Haven't tried it yet, but it's on my to do list for this year.
  21. Above I used the laughing emoticon. On this comment I will use something else. 👍 and heartfelt, thanks.
  22. Are you holding out on us or will you be sharing those tips?
