  • 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.

    You'll be fine. It'll be a little less strong and you'll have more to drink. Bonus! :D I just
    started another myself, but only used 6 of the 96oz bottles.

    This was my first nitro beer via beer gas/stout tap. Loved it. I would do it again in a heart

    Your call. I add it while I am sparging to assist in the dissolving process. Not sure if there
    is some harm in doing that or a benefit to waiting.

    I feel like that might need a little more time to age. What's your plan on time to drink?

    I would hug you if I could. Dude. Seriously thank you for spelling it out for me. I have a
    bazooka screen currently and have never had a stuck sparge. I do fly sparge via sparge arm.

    Out of curiosity, if people are doing 20 min long are their sparges? Maybe that is
    where I am losing some eff. I was able to get back to 70 on this last one.
