  • Got into homebrewing recently after receiving a Mr. Beer kit from my son for my birthday. I've made the American Devil IPA and am currently drinking it. I'm not a fan of IPA's but this one tastes better than any commercial IPA I've had.
  • Next up, the Witty Monk Witbier that also came with the Mr. Beer kit. I will be brewing that this week end. I prefer malty, dark beers, can't wait to try a porter or some kind of stout. I also like wheat beer.

    Yesterday, August 24th, I racked the Winter Warmer to a secondary fermenter. I took a gravity
    reading and it has dropped from 1.080 to 1.024 in the last seven days. I think I'll give it two

  • Posted in thread: Anyone brew a great beer with extract kits? on 07-11-2012 at 04:03 AM
    Give it a couple more weeks, pop another one and give us an update please. Time heals many

    using Star San ...

    A quick update - I couldn't wait any longer and threw a few in the fridge. Popped one on July
    4th, it is the best beer I've made yet! I used a partial mash kit from Brewer's Best and can
    highly recomm...

    Thanks for all the replies. I ended up stirring gently. I did use the whole 5 oz. package of
    priming sugar, we'll see how it goes.
