The Real Mr. Beer - Live Stream Thread

Recommended Posts

I decided to open a main thread for our Live Stream. This is where we will be posting the schedule, updates, etc.

 

To get to the Live Stream, go to this link: https://www.twitch.tv/therealmrbeer

 

You may need to create an account to participate in the chat. Once you have created an account, please be sure to click the Follow button at the top of the page.

 

All streams will start @ 2:30 pm PDT (5:30 EDT) and the tentative schedule will have the structure below:

 

  • Tuesdays - Beginner - These episodes will target beginning MRB brewers. About 30 mins long. 
  • Wednesdays - Intermediate  - These episodes will target intermediate brewers. About 45 mins to an hour.
  • Fridays - Advanced - These episodes will target more advanced brewers and may also have a special guest. At least 1 hour, but may go over depending on subject matter.

 

Each show will begin with some sort of brewing process and the last half of the show will be dedicated to answering questions from the chat and discussing various topics. I apologize if any of the shows, especially the Beginner shows start to seem repetitive. We are trying to reach out to the widest audience possible and this may include doing several repetitive tasks, such as brewing our standard refills for newcomers. The Wed and Fri shows will have more content for those of you that get tired of watching us make standard refills over and over again. With that said, it is still appreciated when you guys come into the chat to help answer questions from the newbies. 

 

If anyone has ideas or topics to discuss in future episodes, let us know in the comments below.

 

 Cheers!

While the last 2 streams were mostly a test, today's stream will be our first official live stream so we've went ahead and announced it far and wide. Expect to see more viewers and a livelier chat for the rest of our shows starting with today's show which will be a Beginner episode and we will be brewing the Aztec Mexican Cerveza Standard refill.

 

Join us at 2:30 PDT (5:30 EDT)!

Can I DVR it? :lol: 

I can't remember if you gave an answer on archiving episodes. The live air time unfortunately doesn't work well with my schedule. 

Good luck today! 🍺

Yes. We will be archiving them. The Twitch site has a way to do it so that you can watch past episodes. I just don't think we have the function turned on yet because the last 2 episodes were mainly tests. I'll ask RickZ about it today.

Great show again.  I was going to mention to not open the lid of the LBK to check the temperature of the wort.  Only open the lid if instructed to do so by the recipe (dry hop, etc).

 

Future show could include the "tools of the trade".  The whisk and/or silicone spatula are obvious, but you could demo the temperature controller when explaining Lagers.  Also I think the plate heater is nice (better than a whole stove that I use).

 

Also, perhaps a show on the different fermenters, including the 6 gallon one (triple your favorite recipe)

Friday we will be brewing a Coopers kit. This isn't technically an Advanced show, but we will have a special guest coming in from Coopers Brewery in AU to chat with us so we're going to feature a Coopers kit.

 

Thanks for the suggestions!

I tried to watch but I think I did not allow for time zones as it was not live when I looked.

I see there 57 followers on the feed.

Are back videos posted?

No back videos are posted at this time, but we are working on implementing that.

 

Keep in mind that Arizona does NOT participate in daylight savings time so if you are on the east coast, we are 3 hours behind, and if you are on the west coast, we are at the same time zone.

Hey guys! We won't be doing a stream today due to a bunch of scheduled meetings with the Coopers rep from AU. We may either do the St. Patrick's Stout tomorrow or just wait for the Friday show (which will be a Coopers Sparkling Ale 6 G batch) and save the St. Paddy's stout for next week. I will keep you all updated here.

Either that or you didn't read the whole thread here. I updated it a few times with what was going on. Scroll up for more info. Keep in mind that while Tues, Wed, and Fri will be our regular schedule, this will always be subject to change due to meetings, projects, business trips, etc. Always check back here or the MRB Twitter or Facebook for updates. You can also check the store page for updates: https://www.facebook.com/everythinghomebrew/

 

Also, if you go to Twitch, register an account, then go to our channel (https://www.twitch.tv/therealmrbeer), register, then click the "Follow" button at the top, you will get email notifications when we go live. The channel is live 30 minutes before the show starts (with a countdown timer) so you get some time to tune in.

 

Don't forget to tune in today, if you can. We will have a special show with a special guest from Coopers Brewery in Australia. Scott Harris, the Marketing Manager of Coopers will be here to talk with our MRB President, Rick Zich, about how our extracts are made and some Coopers history. I will also be brewing their flagship beer, Coopers Sparkling Ale in a 6 gallon batch. Don't miss this one! B)

Live streaming while at work is frowned on, unless it is NCAA basketball.  We do get to sample my homebrew on Friday afternoons though, so at least management has their priorities in order.🍻

So we are changing the schedule up a bit. We will now be airing Tues, Wed, Thurs. Friday was one of our lowest viewer counts probably because people are getting ready for their weekend so we are ditching Fridays for Thursdays instead.

 

Today, we will be brewing The Standard Oktoberfest Lager refill and will be talking a little bit about the style.

 

Please keep in mind that for some of you guys, the Tuesday streams may seem a bit repetitive, but these streams are intended for beginners and new viewers. With that said, please try to refrain from asking advanced questions in the chat on Tuesdays. Save those questions for the Wed or Thurs stream where we will have more time to answer them properly because the Beginner streams will only be 30 minutes long. But feel free to help out any of the newbies in the chat if I miss them or my answer needs a bit of elaboration that I can't offer in the video.

 

We will be doing things a bit more casually and less structured going forward.

 

Tomorrow we will be brewing the Surly Dog IPA and will talk about hop additions and how to choose hops for aroma, bitterness, etc.

or maybe @MRB Josh R helps @MRB Renae brew a Canadian Blonde?  No, I'm not saying she's Canadian, or Blonde.  But perhaps if he can show her how to brew a Tuesday recipe, more women (wives of brewers here?) might take on the "challenge"?

Might have to sit out on this broadcast, but I do have a question I hope gets answered.

 

Considering the beer that is being brewed, a high-hop, how does conditioning time become an issue.  Is it best to drink it sooner, and not wait many months, because the hop oils can break down?

No problem, Yoda. I will add your question to the list. The short answer is, yes, it is best to consume IPAs fresh. There are some exceptions with Imperial IPAs that are aggressively hopped then aged until there is some balance (but still hoppy). Also, some brettanomyces IPAs are aged.

Today will be an intro to all-grain. I will be explaining the 1st step in all-grain brewing: the mash. The beer I will be brewing will be one of my competition beers, Cryonic Suspension IPA. It is a hazy New England style IPA that uses local Sonoran unmalted wheat, a lot of flaked oats, and all late-addition Cryohops.

I hope I didn't create something that has made @MRB Renae uncomfortable.  What I was hoping is to have the folks at Mr. Beer appear on camera so we can meet them.  So far we've had @MRB Josh R and @MRB Rick.  If she, or @MRB Tim want to make a guest appearance, that would be cool

 

Regardless, hopefully I can meet everyone in person if I can pull off my planned trip to Tucson in late September.

 The only gear you can use for AG would be the fermenter, but I did mention that it is great for all-grain test batches or small batches. I also stressed how much easier it is to use MRB products than all-grain. Not trying to deter people from MRB because it's our "bread and butter", just simply showing them the processes involved in all-grain.

You could probably do BIAB with Mr. Beer for not much investment in extra equipment, if you already have a large enough pot to fit it in.

BIAB = Brew in a bag.

Just scale the recipe to the LBK.  For example, many AG recipes are for 5 gallons of beer.  If you want two gallons, scale it back by 40%.

 

Also, there were rumors floating around here about a year ago that MRB might be putting out some AG recipes made for the LBK.  Any word on that, @MRB Josh R?

I've been doing 2-gal. mash-in-sack batches in a 10 qt. T-Fal stock pot.  If there is a particular style that you're interested in, let me know and I'll check the archive. :)

Thanks! I like ipa’s and hefe’s. I really like all beer, hence the hobby. I really like the partial mash recipes but just curious about AG. Just brewed up a whispering wheat Hefe this afternoon. Can’t wait to try it. With the mash sack is that something I can buy from mrb? I have a great local HBS as well.

If the recipe is for a 5 gallon batch, you would use 2/5 the grain bill, and hops(40%) to scale it for the LBK.

I use a stock pot on my electric range and sparge with a Tupperware collander. It's not as difficult as it seems.

That is same as I do with partial mash, bag in a colander and use hot water on it.

This is just higher % grain and maybe a bigger colander - lol.

Last one I did there was a pound of grain (mixed kinds) in it.

 

There are also BIAB 1 gal kits refills you can buy. You could put 1 or 2 of those in also , but likely not economically desirable.
Although these don't look bad - 3 gal kits. You can put them in My Beer's taller 3G Fast Ferment fermenter or the other 2G tall one maybe squeeze it in.

https://www.northernbrewer.com/brewing/recipe-kits/all-grain-biab-kits

They also have 1G kits

Prices are not bad.

This is a fun video

 

Cooling a full boil I think Is maybe one of the more difficult aspects without a cooler although he has a way..

As with fermentation, temperature control during your mash is very important.

Hey guys, there will be a last minute schedule change today. I'm stuck at home with a bad case of bursitis in my knee so I won't be doing an intermediate stream today. Instead, Rick, Robert, and Matt will be doing a live beer tasting and discussion. It's something a little different we've been wanting to try. They will all be available to take your questions. I will also be in the chat from home to help out a bit and answer any of the more advanced questions.

 

We will do the unhopped malt extract batch next Wed. Hopefully, if my knee is better, I will be in tomorrow for part 2 of the all-grain intro.

I will also be in the chat from home to help out a bit and answer any of the more advanced questions.

 

We will do the unhopped malt extract batch next Wed. Hopefully, if my knee is better, I will be in tomorrow for part 2 of the all-grain intro.

Wow dude. That sounds painful. Rest up!

Hope the knee recuperates quickly. Looking forward to next Weds.

Had to watch the stream after work but enjoyed this one even if it was a last minute topic. I wish I could've tried some of those beers myself! There's a brewery 45 minutes from me in Everett Massachusetts called Nightshift that I wish I could send to Josh. lol I just love what they're doing and how they started out. 

 

I hope you guys keep the live streaming going. I'm still fairly new to homebrewing and I've learned a lot of new things just in the past couple weeks. Keep up the great work!

Hey guys! Unfortunately, I'm still at home recovering from a really bad case of bursitis in my knee so I will be postponing part 2 of the all-grain intro stream for next Thursday. Instead, @MRB Tim will be brewing our Thunder bay IPA recipe. This has a grain steep and a short hop schedule, so as far as MRB recipes go, it is one of the more advanced ones. I will still be available in the chat for any advanced questions Tim might not be able to answer. See you there!

Wish I could figure out how to watch the archives. Are they on YouTube by chance? That twitch doesn’t seem very user friendly or maybe I’m just dumb!

@MRB Josh R, I was watching your video on sparging and there were questions about definitions. In German the verb laufen has two meanings, to step or to run. The prefix vor, means, before, prior or pre. Therefore, vorlauf literally means the step preceding lautering.

@MRB Josh R, lauter has a more obscure definition. The commonly used meaning in modern German is "loud". Not exactly meaningful to brewers. LOL. An older definition more appropriate is "pure". So lautering means purifying.

Thanks! This is pretty much what @MRB Renae told me after the show. She's our resident German language expert.

Good to know after 39 years, my 4 years of high school German and two summers in Germany caused something to stick. LOL

If you missed today's stream on designing your own beers with MRB products, you can still watch it on Twitch. We also wrote a blog that compliments it.
