    Beer is too bitter?

    The first 3 brews I've made have all turned out much to bitter for my taste, the first two were darker, both amber and extract kits from my local home brew store (questionable at best). The most recent was AHS Texas Blond which I chose thinking it would be much less bitter yet it also turned...

    AHS Miami Weiss Ale

    Questions about water

    First of all, I have well water, and for my first batch I boiled 3 gallons early in the day and then cooled and poured it into the primary for later (when I added 2 more gallons of extract/water) was boiling it necessary? Also I don't have an auto siphon and the instructions say to fill my...
