  • I brew on a Mr. Beer system (2 mini kegs at 2.5 gallon capacity each), but do all grain, partial mash, and clones. I have recently started making some good recipes of my own including a nice Wit Bier inspired by Blue Moon and a real Oktoberfest that is a nice and malty, the way it should be.

    That's actually a fantastic idea. Thank you!!It's how I do stout additions and add to meads
    when I haven't added enough (or experiment with different mead additions). Works great with
    chili peppers an...

    I just put into secondary and did first dry hop.My OG was 1.078 but 1.013 now. Tastes a tad
    bitter. Hoping it will sweeten.I don't think I've ever had a beer get sweeter on me. You could
    try looking i...

    I've tried the combo in oatmeal, and I like it, too. I'm pretty new to brewing, though, and I
    didn't want to throw too much into the carboy without having a baseline. I'll start simple,
    then get more ...

    I was in Orlando with the Family for vacation. I picked up a Sixer to enjoy in the hotel. Boy

    Just tasted mine after 2 weeks on the coffee/nibs/chili vanilla. Chili is by far the strongest
    flavor - I only used the 3 dried anchos. And its a bit too spicy at this point. Should I try to
    pull the ...

    Looks good to me. Maybe 0.5oz citra in dryhop? I think it's personal preference on that one

    Overflow was par for the course in my experience. How's it taste? You may have a yeastyness
    like rising bread, that's from too hot of a fermentation. If it tastes tart/sour or has an
    acetic (vinegar) ...

    I started a blueberry vanilla variant of JAO. 6 gallons with 1lb frozen blueberries per gallon
    and 6 tsp (or was it tablespoons...) of vanilla extract. Here it is when it first started
    fermenting. We'...
