  1. I ran out of recipes to brew so this weekend I bought a few more including the "buy one, get one" American Ale extracts. Now I am contemplating how to rationally dress them up from just the basic extracts. I have a few extra items from past recipies that can be used and I bought some Pale LME to upgrade the basic America Ale to a deluxe version. Here are the ingredients I could conceivably use and I wanted to get input from the group. - American Ale Extract - 2 x Booster Packs (new smaller size = to one booster pack of old) - Pale LME - Carapalis Malt - 4 oz - 2 Row Malt - 2 oz - Standard MR. Beer Brewer's Yeast that comes with extract Questions - - should I use the boosters and the Pale LME? Or just the Pale LME? - will the Mr. Beer standard Yeast work if I do a partial mash with the Carapalis and / or 2 Row? - Should I partial mash with both Carapalis and 2 row? Or just Carapalis - What would the resulting beer be if I did all this? - Should I add any other additional items? Honey? Brown Sugar? Thanks for the thoughts!
  2. Maybe? I won't brew until later so any advice? CalypsoPaleAle.pdf
  3. Brewed the American Ale Standard Refill back in the beginning of January and tried one this week after the typical recommended 3-4 method. Knew it was bound to happen, but after eight straight brews that were really good to excellent, I was a little disappointed with this one. Perhaps further conditioning will improve results. The appearance was very good. Not much of an aroma, and the taste is pretty bland -- pretty crisp, malty, not much of a hop presence -- nothing special. Your basic brew -- reminded me of when you first start drinking when you're young and you have a "beer is beer" approach to drinking, so something nondescript doesn't bother you all that much. That said, this will be fine to have with a burger or chicken wings or on a hot day after mowing the lawn, but would not be my go-to if I just want to sit back and enjoy a beer on its own. I've read that some people do not use the booster -- is it b/c it tends to give the beer a strange sugary taste? I feel like that came through a little bit -- like just gave this an artificial-ness that has not been present in the other beers I've brewed with Mr. Beer. Kevin
