    My first Mr. Beer, but far from my first brew

    I use my Mr Beer for apfelwein. Its perfect if you dont want to carbonate it, just drink it straight from the tap after a couple of weeks.

    Apfelwein in Mr. Beer

    I tried a couple of ounces of the apfelwein out of the Mr Beer the other day after about a week of fermenting. Its definately booze, and it was pretty good after only a week. I like how the Mr Beer keg has the tap in it, it makes it really easy to sample only a shot or so of whatevers inside.

    Yeast Washing after dry hopping?

    Specific weight of dextrose?

    I have a 5lb bag of dextros I want to use to prime, but I dont have a scale and I dont know how to measure out 4-5oz. Is there a known ratio between the volume in cups to the weight in lbs?

    Mutliple hop additions w/ 1 bag?

    Im going to be brewing an extract kit with hop pellets that calls for additions of hops at different times of teh boil, but I only have 1 hop bag. Will I be ok if I just keep adding hops to the bag even if the old hops are still in there (as long as I keep the timings right for all of them)...
