I'm getting a lot of conflicting info on whether or not I should.
At bottling what I did with the 1st kit is follow the suggestion that if I wanted this like it's commercial brother to add 2 oz of table sugar to the priming sugar boil. I did that, but thought it was too foamy at the pour.
With this run, I'll just add one.
I brewed one up yesterday.
I don't know what it is, but when I'm steeping the grains it just doesn't look like it's going to be beer. I had it break 3 times on me the 1st time and this time I regulated the temps a bit more and only had one healthy break after adding the pilsen. Once it's boiling and the 2nd hop bag goes in...then it looks more like beer. I've brewed Irish Red, a Trois Pistoles clone, a couple of hefes and they were dark as night.
I have a couple of kegs that I'm going to make into keggles so I can start brewing bigger batches. This is one that I will always like to have around. It's just a good tasting beer.
