So, I got a Mr. Beer brewing kit for my birthday about a month ago, and my first batch of beer (the pale ale that came with the kit) is currently conditioning away. But, since I'm impatient (and might have some time this weekend), I think I'm gonna start up a second batch- I got a Vienna Lager kit as well.
However! Here's the kicker. I tasted a sip of the pale ale when I bottled it- it's decent enough, if kinda watery. A quick glance at the instruction booklet informs me that the straight kit only makes a beer that's somewhere around 3.7 percent ABV. Seeing as of how I tend to like my beer a little stronger than that, I was glad to find a little table listing other sugars and things that can be added for the yeast to ferment and make it boozier.
So, the real question is- what would be good to add to the Vienna lager? Right now, I'm thinking about either brown sugar, or honey, but I'm afraid the sugar might make for a funky-tasting beer.
Thanks in advance for the help, guys!
