I think you will find, Udderjuice, that the all-malt versions come out much better than the mix plus booster.
How did you come up with that recipe that combines Mr. beer Mix and dark malt and booster as well? there are better ways to boost alcohol content.
Yep, I am a Mr Beer user and so far am pleased with the ease and convience of the system and the flexibility to experiment. And yes thats the West Coast Pale Ale mix that came with the kit.
I am looking forward to the all malt batch that is in the fermenter now. The krausen head that formed on my all malt brew was much thicker and richer looking than the ones made with booster.
As far as the recipe that combines Mr. beer Mix and dark malt and booster, I just made it up based on the alcohol percentages that the Mr Beer guide book says you'll get from their various ingredients.
