    Not sure whats going on, beer very cloudy...

    Ok, so I have a 2.5 gal brew kit and have had great success with it. I had been making brews with malt and dextrose that were coming out about 7% and I wanted to up that a little so I made a few batches with an extra can of malt. The first one came out ok (its carbonating now) but the second...

    Does anybody know where I can get grolsh style caps...

    Not bottles but just the cap mechanism by itself. I'm thinking it would be easier and cheaper to just but s couple of 12 packs of beer, drink the beer and covert them myself.

    Update on my brews...

    Well my batch of Pale Ale came out pretty darn good. It was a little yeasty but I thnk that flavor can be diminshed through aging and even might be desirable in some lagers and souts I plan on making. Total time in the fermenter was 8 days, total time carbonating was 7 days with 2 day in...

    Question for Mr Beer users...

    I am now considering trying the Mr Beer micro brewery as a 5 gal kit would just make more beer than I can drink and because the Mr Beer kit would take up less space in my apartment and I like the fact that you ferment it and then spigot the beer right into the bottles. Anyway, I'm trying to...

    Lakeview Valley Farms...

    Hello everyone. The past weekend I was with the wife in Bed Bath and Beyond and saw a little beer brewing kit made by Lakeview Valley Farms. It was only 30 bucks so I thought "what the hell" and took it home. It makes 6 beers per batch in a little plastic square with an air valve on top. I...
