    I gave away my Mr Beer kit and bottles at Christmas to try to help somebody else get started.
    Then my wife gave me 3 Mr Beer starter kits for Christmas. I made the Bavarian Weis and am
    enjoying it now...

    The IPA came out very well. I must have just misread the hydrometer.

    Thanks, all. I can't do much about it now but it all goes into the experience folder for the
    next batch. I may have looked at the wrong column on the hydrometer, and if I thought I was
    looking at the ...

    I may well not have read the hydrometer correctly. I did follow the directions for the math
    several times. May get a new one or go over it with the homebrew supply store to make sure I'm
    reading it ri...

    I made up the Brewers' Best IPA adding a liquid yeast that the homebrew shop recommended as the
    only change. I've not gotten much bubbling activity the last few batches in the airlock, so
    didn't think...

    My next kit, a Scottish Ale, was brewed 3 weeks ago Sunday. I put the fermentor in the
    basement, where the temp is usually around 65 all year round. The fermentor temp settled out at
    about 68 for a co...

    From bottling day to opening that first bottle, time has flown. I had my first dunkleweitzen on
    Monday night and it was excellent. Having 2 batches come out so well has really given me some
    confidence...

    I had asked the local homebrew supply store about this after seeing a mint chocolate stout
    mentioned at a local craft beer store. I'm still pretty much of a kit guy, so am planning to
    use the Imperial...

    Been saving the Mr Beer spring special from last spring, the Imperial Lager and have finally
    gotten it in the keg. I found instructions on the Mr Beer forum for it since it didnt come with
    anything an...

    Since temps have been on the low side, I have left my Weitzenbier for an extra week. Picked up
    48 bottles at Brewtensils and will be working on bottling this Sunday. If this stuff tastes as
    good as th...
