  1. Welcome to the madness....make sure you keep reading, lots of good advice here
  2. wouldn't hurt anything...If you can measure your Specific Gravity, that would be good to check, but yeah, just leaving it an extra week won't hurt a thing.
  3. Just brewed That Voodoo that you do but with a pound of Briess Bavarian Wheat DME in place of the Mr. Beer Golden LME
  4. another vote for US-05, though both are beasts of yeasts see what I did there? heh, heh
  5. I agree, but I'm thinking we could save everyone some time and trouble by convincing Mr. Beer to include Rick's phone number in every kit
  6. 1,345,567 times for the no green or clear bottles 17,456,235 times for don't perv the beer
  7. I just don't use booster anymore...….of course the DME I use in its place behaves the same and with that, I put the heat on and slowly whisk it in while the water heats up. Works for me. There are more ways to dissolve booster and DME than I can count.
  8. I've learned a lot reading your posts and several others going back years....and yes, rick, yours too..hehehe
  9. I understand that, but Mr Beer said in full strength, their product can be used as a cleaner and, well, it works very well. You just have to rinse it well afterwards, you know, before sanitizing in my case, using starsan edit: what rick said
  10. The Mr Beer sanitizer, I use full strength as a cleaner to clean my LBK after bottling. For sanitizing, I use StarSan and I will keep that around for a couple weeks without issues. I wouldn't keep the Mr B sanitizer around after mixing it. Two different products, two different ways they work, makes the difference.
  11. really depends which one you are talking about I think
  12. The problem you'll find buying glass bottles on the net is the shipping is going to kill you. I bought glass flip-tops one time only because they were like 70% off, so adding the shipping made them like 10 dollars cheaper than buying them from a local store. Otherwise, no way I would have done it.
  13. That statement right there is what homebrew is really about. Who cares how you got to the beer you like - if you like it, everyone else can (insert your words of choice here).
  14. My Nuggett and Chinook are doing well, look about like yours. Mine took a beating from a storm right after putting them in the ground, think I have 1 dead and 2 hanging on for dear life. We'll see how it all goes.
