Though good tasting after 2 weeks, my Father's Day Mild is even tastier now, after nearly 4
weeks. It has the taste of a full flavored, standard Abv. beer. My neighbor thought it was
about 4.8% Abv. a...

I see that Northern Brewer has a new, re-designed glass big mouth bubbler. It sounds like they
addressed most, if not all of the issues that I had with the old design. It is more expensive,
but if the...

Just a quick update on my 2 week Mild: 8 days in the fermenter, 6 days chilling and carbing in
the keg. At 3.6% Abv, this is the smallest beer I've ever brewed. Though I'd expect it to be

After checking my grain supply, it looks like my choices may be narrowed down for me. For base
malts, I only have Crisp Pale Ale malt, Pilsner, Vienna and Munich. So.. it'll probably be an

Wilserbrewer, I agree. I have chilled and carbed in one day, but it wasn't the best. I
generally like to allow a beer 2 weeks to chill and carb, so I'm not used to having to deal
