    Honey and honey malt

    I just bottled a small batch of wheat beer (1 1/2 gallon) that I added 4oz of honey malt to, made a nice flavor IMO. I say go for it

    Brewing Withdrawals

    I too have not gotten in a brew day this year. I've got everything ready to go... But I'm working 3hrs from home for the next two weeks. So ready to get my next batch rolling

    ABV in range but pre-bottle flavor seems week

    Hmm, I nah if it's a pre pitch gravity you used for your calculation then thats what it should be. Only other thing that comes to mind is if the water wasn't stirred in completely and threw your reading off.

    Did you happen to check your gravity before and after adding water? I'm going to guess your SG suffered.

    Well, you piqued my interest in vine and hop. I'll have to check it out. I've hit up label peelers 3 or 4 times, saves money not having it shipped. They usually have what I'm looking for. I ordered from last for an exact recipe of grain, that was kinda handy, guess my next purchases...

    Opinions on Extract Brewing

    I did an extract kit a few months back. I believe it was a basic beer, american classic. Was two packages of DME and some hops. I adjusted the hops a touch, but it made a decent drinkable beer. I'm not sold on the LME but I may keep some DME on hand to bump up a lower SG and make starters with

    Yep, looks like your first batch is well on its way. I agree with AZCoolerBrewer, take it as a learning experience and start planning your next one. Once it's bottled and conditioned it will taste quite different. Welcome to the club

    So where are you all getting your supplies from?

    How much hops and grain do you have on hand?

    Until I have a dedicated space for my brew supplies and equipment I usually have two batches worth standing by for when the planets align. With 4 kids it can be a challenge to pull off a brew day.

    My airlock fell off and i just noticed

    Replace it and let it ride. Open fermenting is a thing. Only way to know if it's good or bad is to wait and see. You might want to consider using a blow off tube next time as well.

    I'm a noob with general questions. Also, ready for a habanero beer!

    Heck yeah, you're only 14 yrs older than me, hard to beat a good deal. I'm enjoying this forum, wish I'd gotten into brewing sooner than this now.

    Beer Bottle Labels?

    Ok, I was feeling like I was cheating with the sharpie. Now I feel better about it knowing I'm not alone

    Clint & Rosie's BIAB build, brews & Q's

    Sounds you made it work pretty well. IMHO as long as you have some space in your grains to get water through everything you should be good to go. I like to stir my mash a few times to make sure it's not clumped up at all, I've heard many don't sparge at all and just squeeze the bag. Personally I...

    Apple Cinnamon Fall Beer

    How did you do? Was one cinnamon stick enough?
