  1. Hello Mr.Beer world this is my first post. I am on the wagon of people who got Mr.Beer's LBK for christmas (at a freaking amazing price) I have always been interested in brewing and I understood that most use HMA syrup as a base to their beers. Well jumping to my first question (assuming all my terminolgy has been correct) do I even need to use HME or can I use a UME only? Basically, I am asking if you HAVE to use hops in beer? Sorry, ancestors but it seems that HAVING to use hops really kills the ability to experiment. So that was question 1, now question 2. I understand LBK doesn't have an airlock but does that mean I can NOT make wine's or honey mead using my LBK? 3. What is a booster? I know it adds alcohol but what is it? Its not sugar. 4. When calculating malt to adjunct do you inculde boosters and if so is it a simple 2/3 ratio? 2 cups/ounces/pounds/tons of malt per 1 cups/ounces/pounds/tons of adjunct or is it more complicated than that? 5. last but most important, can I add bacon falvor to my beer? Sorry for asking questions that have probably been answered 1 million and 3/4 times.
