Mines been nearly a year in the bottle. It has mellowed, still a bit much spice for my liking. Just not a fan of those one personally. Others have said they like it. I give it to them.

I've got the BB American Amber in the cleanup phase, getting ready to bottle in a few days. The sample I tried when I took a hydrometer reading was very tasty. Next up will be the BB English Brown Ale (glad to see a few posts in this thread saying it's very good) and then batch #3 will be the BB American Pale Ale.

Much more. I would use half of the spices at most. It was almost undrinkable with the full spice mix.

I just brewed my second dunkelweizen, My friends and I liked it, the irish red was good also. Brewed an American Light today, I hope it turns out good, the wort tasted bitter on the end

I have put the dunkelweizen in secondary for 19 days, Turned out good. I noticed all bb kits recommend a secondary. Well the 5 that I have done
