  • 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.

    I will probably brew the normal version first, but I think upping the caramel notes on this
    could be interesting. Kind of like a Caribbean scotch ale fusion. The Plaid Pirate perhaps
    :rockin: I would ...

    If you let it dry out for 4 weeks, my question would go toward the ferm temp. How hot did you
    let it get? I have found with Notty that if you keep it below 72 during fermentation, you are
    generally fr...

    NOT trying to ask a stupid question, but is the cherry juice concentrate real cherry juice, or
    is it apple juice "with natural" and/or "artificial flavors" that make it taste like cherry?I
    ask because...

    Not yet...but I'm using the BASE recipe now for just about all my ciders (and Cysers). I've
    started using 1pt of whatever juice concentrate I think might work. Currently, I used the base,
    let it get t...
