    Cheap equipment? Planning to move on from Mr. Beer

    Lager Vs. Ale

    From what I understand a lager is bottom fermenting and at a cooler temperature whereas ales are top fermenting (meaning the yeast is at the top of the fermenter) and at a higher temp. As far as taste goes...I asked this not too long ago. It seems that ales are a bit hoppier whereas lagers have...

    Mr Beer - Read all about it and ask questions

    Quick question. I know many say to leave your beer in the fermenter for as long as possible to create the highest quality beer...does that hold true with Mr. Beer as well? I have Weizenbier in the fermenter right now. Today is the 16th day. Can I go ahead and bottle it up or should I wait a bit...

    Anyone know where I can find Krueger beer?

    My family's last name is Krueger and I came across a cool sign that said "Ask for Krueger ale beer." I thought it was pretty cool and I have found all kinds of cool stuff online that you can buy. Coasters, cans, signs....but no actual BEER! Just wondering if anyone has heard of this and if so...

    Are pale ales hoppier than lagers?

    Oh yeah...I've noticed IPA's are really hoppy. One of my favorites is the Firestone Union Jack. If you haven't tried it I highly recommend it. Drinking the California Ale right now from Firestone and it's also really good.

    Are pale ales hoppier than lagers?

    Still trying to learn my different beers. From what I understand there are two main types of beer. Ales and lagers...with of course many different styles of each. From what I can taste it seems like pale ales are much hoppier than any lagers I've tasted.

    3rd batch! Weizenbier!

    Hey guys...just started my 3rd batch of brew. I have the Mr. Beer kit and went ahead and got the Weizenbier since I'm a fan of wheat beer. Any ideas or suggestions to making it better. It's been sitting in the keg for 10 days now...but unlike my other 2 batches I want to get rid of that...

    Anyone living on the west coast that knows Firestone have got to get their new seasonal that just came out! Solace is one of the best tasting beers I've ever had. They're not sure if they are going to continue with this seasonal but they are making it through August and I highly...

    Froze my beer

    Had some people over yesterday and they wanted to try my Vienna Lager home brew. So to chill it fast I threw 3 bottles in the freezer. Drank 2 last night (which they liked by the way, whoo hoo!) but forgot about one. This morning I open the freezer to grab my box of waffles and there sits a...

    Dos Equis Amber

    I was sitting back enjoying a Dos Equis today and they're not bad. Was wondering if anyone has had the Amber and how it compares to the regular green bottles. Flavor wise, quality wise? Not only am I new to brewing...but I'm venturing out of my bud light cocoon and starting to enjoy the...

    When to bottle

    Excuse me for sounding like a noob...what do you mean when you say it helps the yeast "clean up" after itself?

    My last beer I did with Mr. Beer was the WCPA that came with the kit. I only had it in the primary for a week but then conditioned it for 3 weeks and it turned out pretty good. I wanted to leave it in the primary a little longer this time...was wondering if there was going to be a big...

    Thanks for the tip. Then do you mix well or just pitch it in to the wort and let it be?
