I kegged my 2nd batch of this tonight. It was considerably more bitter on the back end that the initial batch I brewed 8 weeks ago. I missed my OG by a fair amount, perhaps that's why. Still really good, I just hope the coffee bitterness mellows a tad. The initial batch was spot on, I mean really spot on.

Terrible job.

Not sure what went wrong but my batch is horrible at 3 months

Smells like rotten Jalopenos....taste makes me want to gag....no roast no chocolate flavors

The initial wort before pitching the yeast didn't seem right ....hardly had any aroma flavor was so so....I followed the original grain bill and hop schedule ....wonder if some of my grain was bad????

No signs of an infection other than the unpleasant aroma but not the typical aroma from an infection

It's a real head scratcher ....I'm not even going to give it more time just dumping it

Ooops wrong thread! This was intended for the DFH 60 minute clone thread. I also have this brew fermenting too right now but yeah my bad. Had multiple tabs open in my browser!

Yeah, but I'm thinking it might be good when I find it.

If you take the recipe to your local homebrew shop they should be able to turn it into a recipe that will work with Mr. Beer. This recipe is for 5 gallons; if I recall Mr. Beer is 2 gallons, so everything would need to be cut by 40%. You'd also need to steep some grains and hops in addition to adding the extract syrup.

All in all, this would be a more advanced recipe than the standard Mr. Beer ones, but I don't see why you couldn't brew it with that equipment.

Split a bottle of this brew( a bit different bc I put 1oz of French oak chips and 5oz bourbon) and it was really rough. Still tastes like drinking coffee in a cup made of oak. It has so much potential. Looks perfect. Mouthfeel is good but alas it just needs time. I really feel this can be my best brew yet, I hope time works in my favor.

By the way.... Bottled on 11/9/12. So everyone who said 6 weeks was too soon was right.
