I know, I know...Mr. Beer...
Needless to say, I am for the most part a newbor....Right now I have a pils bottled and almost ready for lagering.
What I am looking for is just some opinions, comments, criticisms, etc...
I took a can of Mr. Beer's Nut Brown Ale, did the usual tasks for brewing, but put a spin on things.
First of all, I took a packet of yeast from Mr. Beer and added it to a glass of warm water, mixed it, and let it sit for about 15 minutes. The 2 gallon container (everything sanitized) was filled quarter of the way with cool water.
Here's part of the twist....I took 1 tblsp of all spice, 1/2 tsp of coco, and 1/2 tsp of brown sugar, and the livin'd up yeast water, and added it to the cool water already in the keg. I took about 2 quarts of water, warmed up the can of malt, and then added it to the water..making it boil. Once it boiled, I let it cool and then added it to the existing mash in the keg. Once the wart was added, I added another dry packet of yeast and stir for about 10 minutes.
Now, this is totally an experiment. I've brewed many successful brews, but I followed the instructions to a "T" and at this point I wanted to make something different. I plan on letting this ferment for 3-4 weeks and then bottling it for carbonation for 3 weeks, and then to the fridge for at least another 3 weeks or more before drinking.
Long, explained and probably boring to most of you, BUT please give me your opinions to what you think what will happen, any suggestions, etc.
