  • Like a lot of homebrewers, I started into the brewing world via Mr. Beer. After a year of several (5-6) successful Mr. Beer kits, I got a 5 gallon kit from Austin Homebrew Supply. My first batch was an extract brew with about 2 pounds of specialty grain. rnThe next month, after stumbling across HBT and gathering TONS of information, I did my first all grain batch (2.5 gallons - used my Mr. Beer fermentor :))rnEver since then, it's been non-stop HBT and all grain brewing via BIAB.rnI like BIAB and it suits my brewing needs right now. I might upgrade to a cooler/3 vessel system in the future. Just not right now...

    It depends on how you want the finished beer to turn out. S04 will leave a tad more sweetness
    compared to notty. I'm a huge notty fan so I'd probably use that.

    Yeah. That should work fine. Adding the sulfites and sorbate first is the most important thing.
    The clarifier won't have an impact on the sugar being added.

    I'd have to say that I like this fresh too. I have some guys in my club that like to age them
    but can confirm like azscoob said that the flavors mellow out a bit.
