It is a mix between cider and mead. That one was 4# of orange blossom honey, 1 gallon cider, and a mountain of berries.

Did it! Thanks for the advice! Boiled the water last night, let it cool over night and added it this morning. Sanitized a measuring cup and used that to transfer to the fermenter/carboy.

I got a six gallon wine kit for Christmas- as soon as I find a bucket big enough I'll make it- but it'll take a year to age. Planting a small vineyard this spring- Zinfandel, Cab Franc, and Malbec

Default NooB Introduction

Hello all brewers! Name's Chris from Dayton, Ohio. I thought this would be the appropriate place to make my introduction as I am embracing the 1-gallon all grain brewing world. My wife got me the Mr. Beer kit for Christmas, I brewed up the batch of American Light it came with and it is clearing up nicely in the LBK fermenter.

I also received the book "Beer Craft" from my sister and I decided I wanted to do some all-grain brewing but do not want to make 5 gallons at a time. We have a nice home brew shop close by so I went in and put together all the appropriate supplies. I also picked up all the ingredients to do my first brew (a standard American Pale Ale).

The brewing went well for my first shot but I wrote down notes on everything that could have gone better for the next time. Here are pics of the mash & boil. I'll snap a pic of the fermenter and it get it up here as well. Should be ready to bottle come 1/14/13.

I look forward to chatting with everyone and growing my brew skills!
Cheers!

Another pint pour. 6.2% IPA, bitterered with Horizon, with Southern Cross (NZ) and Falconers Flight for flavor/aroma. What an incredible beer! Awesome late boil combo, recommended

So I need to decide which batch to brew next, an amarillo blonde or the coconut porter.

Technically the porter will take longer, thus I should start it sooner...but the amarillo sounds do tasty!

What would you do? (note: only enough time to brew one batch this weekend)

I mean this in a very respectful way>

The more I read your post, the more I get confused. How can you call a beer incredible if you hate beer? It says in your signature you hate it!

Even when someone loves beer like me... my taste is pretty specific to me as is almost every brewer I know. Although, there are beers that a higher number of Homebrewers will prefer in any one category.. thats the reason we have beer sites like beeradvocate.com rating beers. ... so if you dont even like beer ???? WTF How could you possibly judge it? or say "it's an incredible beer" ?

Enlighten me..
