  1. Yes I'm using the plastic bottles. The bottles felt firm when I put them in the refrigerator. There was not much foam at all. It just seemed flat after the little foam I did have was gone.
  2. I only left it in for 2 days. I've put the rest of the bottles in the refrigerator at the same time as the others. I'll sample the bottles this weekend. I think maybe I just became impatient.
  3. Sorry, I meant carbonated for 3 weeks. My refill was fresh . I'll give it a little more time.
  4. I recently brewed the Aztec Cerveza. I fermented for 3 weeks and bottle conditioned for 3. My house stays around 70 to 72 at this time of year. I used the plastic bottles that came with my kit. I used Mr Beer carbonation drops, 2 per bottle according to instructions. All this to say that I don't have a lot of carbonation in the beer. What can I do to boost carbonation?
  5. Has anyone here brewed a honey lager using Mr Beer extract? Any information would be great!
  6. Has anyone ever brewed beer using other beer recipes from other companies in their Mr Beer keg? Such as, Northern Brewer's kits?
  7. Thanks again everyone. That's what I like about this group, everyone is so helpful.
  8. Is it normal, after 2 weeks in the fermenter, to have some stuff floating on the surface of the beer? Appears like some very small quantity of left over foam.
  9. Do any of you run your beer through a filter from the fermenter as you bottle to eliminate possible sediment?
  10. Thank you everyone for the welcoming to the forum. I can already tell, I'm going to like it here!
  11. Thank you AnthonyC. I look forward to everyone's advise and experience.
  12. Thank you for your information C-ya! I'm excited about making beer. But I'm not going to rush it.
  13. Thank you, I was a little confused. I didn't want to ruin the first batch.
  14. First time using Mr Beer. My question is, how long should the beer be in the fermentation keg before bottling? On the side of the kit box, it says 3 weeks. On some videos, I see 2 weeks. Which is correct? I'm using the Aztec Cerveza.
