    Has anyone used the Mr. Beer keg to carb the beer in? Just save it in there for a party where
    it'll go in one night?Thoughts?

  • Posted in thread: Cold crash/ Temp change question on 09-10-2012 at 05:16 AM
    I can't answer all of your questions, but from my experience higher fermentation temperatures
    have resulted in FAR worse issues in the beer than lower temperatures have. Liquid takes much
    longer to ch...

    Will do, thanks for the help/encouragement! Its incredibly clear already. Looks similar to how
    anchor steam does in the bottles. As for the taste we'll see... :)

    I may have been a little overzealous, and I brewed an Oktoberfest Lager without having the
    exact means of cooling the lager. I used Saflager W/3470, and it fermented around 62 degrees
    for 4 weeks. Th...

    The "fruity" beer reminds me of my early/green beers. For me it was a combination of the
    temperature being too high during fermentation and bottling too early. More specifically I
    found the high ferme...

    I made this Porter kit and added vanilla was the most 'popular' brew I've made to
    date. It'd be great for early-winter...I soaked 3 vanilla beans in brandy for 1 week and added
    to the secon...

  • Posted in thread: What does Strke in at 160 Deg mean on 09-02-2012 at 05:13 AM
    I am not nearly experienced as many of the other members, but in this case it looks like you
    bring the water up to 160 degrees and then begin your mash. Your mash is obviously
    significantly cooler tha...

    Is anyone familiar with the regulations regarding selling a brew kit? Not necessarily grown by
    me, but just formulated, purchased wholesale and produced/marketed by me.Just looking for a
    place to star...

  • Posted in thread: Using Vanilla Beans in Porter Recipe on 08-21-2012 at 01:24 AM
    I used 2 1/2 vanilla beans in a porter. Soaked in brandy for 7 days, put in the secondary for
    10 days and then bottled. It was delicious, but next time I will only have them in the
    secondary 3-5 days....

  • Posted in thread: Chocolate and beer? on 08-21-2012 at 01:19 AM
    I shaved some dark and milk chocolate into the grains in my grain bag, and then steep'd it all
    into the wort. It was a recipe for a porter and it was the best beer I've made so far! I
    wouldn't think i...

Uh-huh, uh-huh. Okay. Um Can you repeat the part of the stuff where you said all about uuhhh, things.
