  • Some time in January 2012 I got a Mr Beer from woot.com! Brewed first batch, West Coast Pale ale, following MrB directions. Loved it! Then Recieved another 2 MrB refill kits. Brewed Whispering Wheat, Vienna Octoberfest, and Candain lager following MrB directions. Started to branch out with the kits and moved to the Firecracker Red Ale from MrB website. Going to see how this turns out, and continue experimenting with the other 2 kits. I have created a bottling bucket from a Lowe's 5 gallon bucket. Plan to pick up another Lowe's 5 gallon bucket and start making 4 gallon extracts!

    Guess I'll just relax. It has to make beer one way or the other, right? Stupid me without A
    hydrometer.

    So the thermometer I had in the bathroom said it was 57 degrees on the floor of the bathtub. We
    don't use the tile shower. Now I'm worried the yeast went to sleep after sitting in it for 24
    hours.

    Ok. Thank you everyone. It seems the general reply is that 54 ambient temp is too low for this
    yeast. Thank you! I will keep it upstairs and RAHAHB

    Ok I will leave it in the upstairs bath room. It's the coolest place in the house. Last I
    checked the water temperature in five gallon back was about 66 degrees. I guess that should
    work. Guess I just...

    ok so your saying that keeping it in my basement at 57 degrees is a bad idea?

    Hi all, second time doing a extract brew myself.I am doing a wheat ale using WLP380.It says to
    cool wort down to 75, which I did. Then pitch the yeast. I then proceeded to out my fermentor
    down in my ...

    So as expected beer turned out. I Am not sure about the flavor seems a little smokey and a hint
    of something else, not sure what.A few of my buddies liked it so I guess it must be good.

    So I made 2.5 gallons of this necter from the heavens and finally ran out. Did not heed the
    advice to start a second right away!So the next time I make this tasty beverage I will make 5
    gallons. Quest...

    Alright that makes sense, I guess I need to keep an eye on what yeast I use from now on then.
    Either way where the fermentor is now, the ambient temp is much cooler then the house.I will
    look into a s...

    I figured as much. That is why I moved it to the basement. It is no colder than 65 in the
    basement. So add 5 to that I am right where I need to be. Just hope I did it soon enough to
    avoid ruining anyt...
