The Basic Brewing guys did a video on a Mr. Beer batch they brewed. There are some great tips on how to get more out of your kits. Doing some of these things will also help you ease into brewing extract and steeping grains on a little larger scale.

Mike-try to let it sit 3 weeks to carb and bottle condition. I know its tough to wait, but you'll get a lot better beer.

What are you thinking about for the next batch?

Steve - I will do what I can to make myself wait out the time... but may stick a bottle or two in the fridge somewhere after 7-10 days... just for experimentation

Next batch will be the Mr Beer West Coast Pale Ale HME... but I am debating on trying a partial mash this time, even if just for a little bit of color. I really don't like overly sweet or citrus-y beers, so I would like to bump this one up a little.

I already have a pound of Muntons Plain Light DME sitting here that I can add in, to try and up the malty feel, but would like to work out a small grain bill that might add some body or at least a little color and smooth out the flavor a bit
Attention, please, for a very important announcement...


That is all
