  1. Well, after about a dozen Mr Beer recipes, I'm starting to get disheartened. I've made all sorts of recipes that are different flavoured using all sorts of different hops, yeast, water and adjuncts. Every batch I've made, they all have a very similar taste. Some more bitter than others, but similar. My sanitation is good. I ferment for the recommended duration. I pitch my yeast at about 65-68F. I ferment at between 62-68F.... and every batch I've made has the same 'twangy' flavour as the batch before, regardless of which hop or yeast I use..... Don't get me wrong, they have tasted quite good, but virtually the same.... fruity/metallic, I don't quite know how to quantify it. Now don't go and tell me I've fermented too warm, because I have THREE ways of monitoring temps. Stick on aquarium type, remote weather station type, and infra red gun style. I now believe 'the twang is real', partial mashes or not. I think I'll do an all grain BIAB next to compare the taste... I also recently got a mini fridge, maybe I'll try a pilsner/lager. Thoughts???
  2. Has anyone seen this page at the Coopers website? http://store.coopers.com.au/recipes/index/list/section/craft Lots of new good Ideas and some new twists on Mr Beer original recipes.
  3. I've been working on a recipe for an Oatmeal Stout, here's what I've come up with. I plan to make it this weekend any comments or suggestions would be appreciated . Oatmeal Stout Recipe Characteristics via QBrew Recipe OG 1.069 Estimated FG 1.017 Recipe Bitterness 40 IBU ABV 6.7% Recipe Color 60° SRM Ingredients 1.87 lb Mr. Beer St. Patrick’s Irish Stout 4 oz Flaked Oats 4 oz Chocolate Malt 4 oz Barley 1.5 lb Briess Dark DME 1 pkt Mr. Beer Yeast I plan on steeping the grains in 4 qt of water at 160 for 30min. Rinsing with 2 qt of hot tap water Then bringing the pot to boil and adding the DME. Remove from heat and add the St Patricks HME Adding to the LBK topping of the water and letting it cool to 65 or lower Pitch the Mr. Beer Yeast I was also thinking about adding 1 tbs of coca powder to increase the Chocolate flavor. Again I'd appreciate any comments.
  4. From the album: First attempts

    My first setup, an old and new LBK side by side. On the we have a Chocolate Porter and the right, apple cider.
  5. Is there a recipe using no HME? Maybe mixing two different LMEs and tossing some hops in?? Looking to make a malty beer with around 15-25ibu
  6. I bought an LBK a while back, and brewed the American Light that came with it. I followed the MR. BEER included instructions TO A TEE (correct temperature and sanitizing while brewing, ideal ferment temp and time, exact amount carbo drops and ideal carbo temp and time). I chilled the beers in the fridge for two weeks, like it says to do. It was after tasting my almost unenjoyable "liquid bread" that I figured it was just because it was American Light (light beers are a waste of hops) and there must be a reason they toss this kind in with your kit as a 'freebie'.. So I looked online and found a bunch of awesome sounding refill kits and didn't hesitate to order some beers that I myself would buy at The Beer Store (you guys in Ontario will know what I'm talking about). I received them yesterday and am anxious to get some more brewing today. I got Grand Bohemian Czech Pilsner, Diablo IPA, American Ale, Northwest Pale Ale, Pale BrewMax LME SoftPack, along with a Professional Bottling System. ANYWAY, long story short.. Some cans are bigger than others. Can I use them all in my LBK, or do I need to split into two batches, or get a bigger fermenter?
  7. iv'e looked around for this and was not able to find an answer, i'm not planning on going all "mad scientist" its kinds just out of curiosity. i know some recipes may require more i don't think some would take less, but is there a minimum or maximum amount of hme than can be used in the LBK? thanks!
  8. Hey folk, I have brewed my first batch of beer, and seems to be a success. Now, I want to maybe take it a step further and try making my own HME and such. However, I do not have the slightest clue on where to begin for that. Any ideas, helpful hints, etc?
