  1. i think you could easily identify which bottle leaked b/c of stick beer residue on the side of the bottle. check it out and throw that bottle/cap away (after drinking the beer).
  2. welcome back to the forum @Marius!
  3. i know early 2018 mrb posted that there were some failures with some of their caps and were offering to switch them out. i switched to 12 oz glass shortly after.
  4. old thread, but i say go for it! better beer awaits! hopefully the OP was convinced to upgrade 3 yrs ago....LOL
  5. nice, no thanks to me. you're the one doing it and making good beer. keep up the good work! i may copy your recipe....LOL
  6. sounds good. you dry hopping? Whirlpooling? that's a lot of hops. should be tasty.
  7. not brewing till next weekend, but went to LHBS today and got the parts for a 4 gallon batch of all grain Hopslam clone. lots of hops bought today.
  8. i have heard good things about qbrew, but i use beersmith, and can't imagine brewing without it. it tells you how much mash water/strike water etc....to use.
  9. i would say go for it. although, i think the LBK is the perfect size for experimentation. 2 gal batch isn't too much, or too little. and there's no more effort 1 vs 2 gal batch. but it just gets worse from here. now i do 4 gal batches, and experiments are 3 gal.
  10. there are a lot of opinions on this forum and others, but I would start simple with a BIAB recipe. watch some videos on youtube about the process. if you have a kettle already, you just need some mesh sacks which are cheap on amazon and either a home brew shop or a place to buy grain and hops online. @Bonsai & Brew posted a recipe some time ago for an all grain pale ale called "Little Trees". that might be a good 2 gal recipe to try. sky is the limit.
  11. the internet is loaded with all grain beer recipes. are you more interested in what is the process for brewing? or just a recipe?
  12. maybe home brewing is off b/c of fitness trends, craft breweries and just retail in general. i don't brew to save money....etc. i like the process and having a cold keg of homebrew in the garage fridge. if you have a good LHBS that supports home brewers AND pro brewers, like mine does, that's probably a good recipe for success and sustainability. just guessing.
  13. i was in my LHBS yesterday, and it was hopping. had to wait a bit to get my grainbill put together. i guess it depends on the area of the country you live in or something.
  14. i don't brew MRB brews much anymore, as I have moved on to all grain, but the recommendations haven't changed. 21 days fermentation is pretty fool proof and 4 weeks in bottles ~ 70 deg will carb your brew.
