Absolutely on poor instructions!!
When I first started brewing I followed the instructions to the T - including placing the carboy in the warmest room I had.
For the life of me I do not understand why they say to do this.
They also do not mention rehydrating dry yeast.
Nor do they mention the dangers of oxidation when transferring beer to secondary or the bottling bucket.
I would think it is in their best interest for new brewers to make the best beer as possible...but they practically instruct them to make bad beer.

Good looking labels! I wish I had more time to do some creative stuff like that with my homebrews. My labeling consists of a sharpie on the cap. Then again, I try to lean towards the simplicity of it all...I like to think it lets the beer speak for itself. Just my two cents...

Just ordered me some Caribou Slobber! I went ahead and also ordered a Spiced Winter Ale kit, may as well utilize the $7.99 shipping since I am ordering anyways.
