Have two Mr. Beers, only one has sentimental (my first brew) value. I'm tempted to bite with the second one which has the new design with no air lock, just a lid that doesn't seal tight enuff to keep co2 from venting. Don't like that one at all really so I'd cut it for the novelty of having the mini conical.

it does have a better spout and thought about trading in but............

The Mr Beer fits nicely in the back of my cabinet where the wife doesn't have to look at it and therefore will not complain about it.

I have three LBK's so I took out the dremel tool today and cut out a section and sent it in. I like to brew 2.5 gallon all grain/partial mash batches so the new conical should work better. Does anyone have an opinion on the new Mr. Beer extracts vs the old? I have brewed almost all of them and have been underwelmed when brewed without tweeks. A few of the old extracts were good straight up like Wity Monk & Pilot House Pilsner. May have to order them to keep the pileline full.

Wish I had thought to use my dremel. I hacked though it with a box cutter. What a nightmare!

Anyway, I had 2 LBK's and the valve on one was terrible so I dont feel bad sacrificing it.

I hacked mine out with my leatherman. Taped it into a thank you card.

Great promotion. Worth the 13 bucks IMO.

Yes it wouldn't be any bugging than shipping a post card!

The Mr. Rootbeer kit that I have didn't come with a keg fermenter. The only other thing that you might be able to use is the clear keg that Mr. Beer makes for their Cider kits.

Tomorrow is the last day to take advantage of this deal! Did anyone else sacrafice their LBK to get a BD LBC (Little Brown Conical)?
