  • Old Chicago restaurant in Southgate, MI. They were my first experience with brews from all over the world and locally. As I continued through the tour, I got more curious and talked about getting into the homebrew scene. I received a MR. Beer kit for Christmas in 2010. It turned out horrible. But, I ended up buying a "real" kit from Austin Homebrew and a recipe from my LHBS. It turned out better tasting but I screwed up the fermentation. I just continue to want to improve and I've kept it up....and I love it. I realized how far I'd come when I was able to supply a friend of mine a variety 6 pack with all different brews. A little moment of pride.

    Me saying "what most people do" never works out lol - I can tell you want I do and share the
    basic knowledge I have. My understanding is that refractometers really aren't good for finding
    FG. They're ...

    Using a brix refractometor I started this at 1.097 and finished at 1044 putting it into the
    northern Brewer calculator it comes to being fg of 1.01 11% is this correct.... This is my
    first time trying...

    If you used the WLP060, you should be fine. In my experience, it seems to be one of the
    strongest performers I've ever used. I only did a 1.5l starter for mine and it still powered
    through everything ...

    I accidentally added 1 extra lb of brown sugar .... Looks like this will clock in around 10.5 %
    Do you think it will still be good?Last one I made hit exactly 10.5%. It's the best batch I've
    made yet,...

    I've made this cider a couple times now, and finally got around to trying it with a splash of
    fireball - it's really good! I was thinking of putting some fireball soaked oak chips in the
    secondary. Ha...

    I love it and have made it multiple times. The vanilla should be done according to your tastes
    but this is one of my favorite recipes.

    I used swing top bottles to bottle my Westies a year ago, and have had no noticeable problems
    whatsoever. In fact, I question the concern about the use of swing tops, since the bottles are
    pressurized...

    Ha! I thought grape was just a typo for great!That little bit 'o fun was the main reason I

    Grape like grape juice. It was weird and only an underlying flavor next to the plum/stone fruit
    flavors, etc. It's not bad, just surprising. I swear I remember someone else on this thread had
    the same...
