  • After a visit to Germany and being blown away by how good the beer was. I saw how many of the pubs and restaurants grew and brewed their own ingredients for beer. After returning home I didn't want to go back to drinking cheap water beer. So I tried to make some home brew and it was a success! I loved it and my friends and family loved it too. I still like to try new beers but I stick more to craft/micro brew because it seems to have better quality and taste.
    I still have a lot to learn but it is a fun experience that I don't mind spending my money or time on as long as I can have a cold pint in the end.

    Just made it again and it is delicious! It taste way better after I let it age for an extra
    week. WOW.

    Turned out great! Doesn't taste exactly like Young's but very close. Everyone who has tried it
    is impressed and I'm surprised it taste has good as it does. Thanks everyone for you advice and
    input.

    Vertexbrew, did you try Biermuncher's bottle filler? It's a sticky under bottling/kegging. I
    actually just tried it this weekend for some bottles to give away. Not too painful, as bottling
    goes. Cer...

    10g makes 90-100 12oz beers right? So $66/100 = .66 Anybody have a good technique for bottling
    from a pony keg so that the bottles keep the same level of carbonation as from tap. Mine seem
    to be perfe...

    Let us know how the clone turns out. I'm finding it nearly impossible to find Young's anymore,
    especially in those nitro cans.They have them at a local liquor store near my house called
    Ray's for $2.9...

    Also, that doesn't mean your beer is only 2.5%. You take the alcohol percentage that
    corresponds to your original gravity(pre fermentation) and subtract the alcohol percentage that
    corresponds to your...

    i'll check tomorrow and if I'm still at 10.20 by Wednesday I guess It's done. And I'll keg it.

    Thanks everyone. I set the Hydrometer in and it sinks down all the way to the 20 at the top.
    So...10.20?? It's near the top. Thats at the 0-5% alcohol content range about 2.5% not much but
    it smells g...

People who drink light beer do not like the taste of beer, they just like to pee a lot. It's a lovely day for a guinness! ~vertex
