Interesting Gift: 5 Beer Mixes

Recommended Posts

Some guy at the bar told me two days ago he stopped brewing beer a year ago. I told him I brew four MB batches every month. He then came up to the bar this afternoon and gave me five beer mixes -- two Dutch Lager and three Czech Pilsner from "Beer Machine." Never heard of that one, but I'm wondering if I can do these mixes in my MB fermenters. What the heck -- I got four MB fermenters that will be empty this weekend. Might just toss these mixes in and see what happens. No big risk. The instructions say to just mix with water -- no boiling.

Reader's Digest version, the stuff is basically nothing more than hopped DME with a packet of yeast inside the bag as well. Many folks, myself included, enjoy it better with some added malt and extra hops.

I've been told that the 'no boil' part of the instructions is bad advice & to boil the water anyway. Not sure why if you are adding tap water also, but that's what I was told. AND since i wasnt planning on getting one of those kits i didnt ask any questions. Perhaps the gurus can weigh in?
