Posted in thread: 14 year old homebrew on 05-18-2012 at 09:10 PM
My litle girl helps me bottle my brews. Last year, we did the Northern brewer No.1, which is a
really strong Old Ale. We used a gold cap for one bottle instead of the usual silver. That one
is marked ...
Posted in thread: Stick with extract for fun and beer on 09-12-2011 at 08:51 PM
I've tried a few BIABs, and it's OK, but I'd just as soon use that extra hour and a half on
something else. There are so many great Northern Brewer kits I have to get through that I know
I'll be drink...

I'm in the same boat right now. My first bottle was completely flat. About two or three weeks

boil, and if y...

Goose Island bottles are great. I got two cases of them from my brother in law. I started
soaking them in Oxi-Clean for a half hour and all the labels were floating at the top. Zero
effort to remove t...

I had some huge blowoff on my last one, so I gave it a taste. It was incredibly bitter.
Couldn't get rid of the taste in my mouth for a couple of hours.
Posted in thread: Corn Sugar and BIG Beer - question on steps... on 02-11-2011 at 06:59 PM
When I made the Northern Brewer No. 1 kit a few weeks ago I just dumped in the four bags of
sugar(!) at flameout. I really don't think it matters too much, but I saw no sense in boiling
the stuff. It ...

Sounds perfectly reasonable. That will be a good yeast, too. The Coopers yeast is fine, but it
gets a bit boring after awhile. I'm sure you'll be very happy with this--especially since it's
