New Ironman Brewer

Recommended Posts

I have been watching and reading all the forums now for 7 weeks - I received my LBK - 7 weeks ago and brewed up the Mexican Aztec.  So after reading and following the Beer Gods advice I have left it fermenting for 3 weeks and Carbo / Conditioning for 4 weeks.  I have put one bottle in the fridge and have now opened.  It is good a bit on the lighter side for me but still very tasty.  I am now on my 3rd batch "Yule Time Ale" and thank you Mini Yoda for you input.  The second batch I bottled was with a bottle capper and it is Wild Wheat, only on the second week of Carbo / Condition and more in my taste buds liking I hope.

 

So the Ironman brewer is off and running, just like a Ironman race, it doesn't matter how you finish, it only matters that you finished !!

 

Thank you all for the very valuable information that you post -

That is, in fact a legitimate repetitive lifting routine unless you are using light beer

Congrats on entering a fun and rewarding hobby. The brews will just keep getting better and before you know it you will crave your own beer instead of storebought. Cheers and happy brewing!

I really enjoyed the wild wheat.  I still have a few left, but it is certainly one of my favorites.  Not as hazy or light in color as a true Hefeweizen, but tastes very good.

How long dis you condition ?  I had one at 14 days and it seems that it needed more time. 

Almost none of them will be good at 14 days. Most of us here wait at least 28, and sometimes more. I usually sample one at 3 weeks. Sometimes they're okay by then.
