  • 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.

    I've been using this thread as a basic guideline and have landed on Cl and SO4 both around 120
    to 140 to be my sweet spot with the .25 honey malt with around 30% flaked grains mostly with
    Conan, but I...

    Yeah, or I can just make 5gal of this again. [emoji6]Starting to get tired of the $10-12
    12oz'ers.Totally agree. I was just trying to say that the beer you're buying may not be fresh
    and if you age yo...

    Let it age a little and see how it compares to bomb off the shelf that's not super fresh (at
    least here) and has been exposed to transportation conditions and then retry the taste test. I

    The hypocrisy of Yuengling to be so pro-Republican and yet run to the fed when they want
    something is staggering.True, but isn't this also a classic example of a domestic company vs a
    foreign owned co...

    In terms of cold crash, don't do it! Yes, it'll help settle out all these hops, but I wouldn't
    do anything that might risk bringing oxygen into your carboy. I don't use any Whirlfloc in the
    boil or ge...

    I have brewed 2 different versions of this recipe and both have far exceeded my expectations. I
    struggle to get consistent efficiency but the last time I ended up right at 9% which was my
    goal. I adde...

    Just curious if anyone has tried via packs for coffee additions in the keg or at bottling.
    Seems like it would work in theory.

    Im in no way disputing what your buddy heard, I'm just very surprised by this. I've heard a
    number of people saying that Conan is a finicky strain to work with. I've always had 1318

    Me tooooooo! Tried to brew the Two Hearted clone and my yeast harvested from Oberon bottles
    never took off. Ended up pitching some harvested 1318 from my last batch of Hop Hands clone. I
