    I like the American wheat idea. Every Budlight drinker I know seems to like a "wheat beer". It's all Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat around here.

    first batch bottled,hell yea

    Congrats on your first beer! In "Joy of Home Brewing" Papazian explains that part of a hangover is due to a lack of the Vitamin B complex (among dehydration and maybe others?), and because the yeast in home brew create the Vitamin B complex home brew actually replenishes your body's losses...

    Conditioning temp. for a lager

    After bottling should I condition my steam beer at the same temperature as I fermented at (about 49F)? what will yield the best result?

    Need suggestions to formulate IPA recipe from LME

    I read somewhere that since it is almost like hop extract in those kits it will ad the bitterness but not so much the aroma or flavor. so it might not be a bad idea to add a aroma/flavor hop like cascade. you can also ask you LHBS and they should be able to tell you for sure. Happy Brewing!

    Belgium Wit - Bottling

    I usually go by the 123 rule. 1 week in the primary, 2 in the secondary, and 3 in the bottles conditioning. although I'm pretty new to brewing as well it seems to be a general rule that people use. happy brewing!

    Trying a 90 min clone

    I also put plastic wrap over the the mouth of my carboy and apply preasure to the opening (as to not let anything spill out) then I turn it on it's side and roll it around for a long time maybe 10-15min. this seems to do the trick. have a good brew!
