Sounds like a good time, drunk a few for me!

It's pretty stinking spot on. Closest I have done yet.

Extract recipe:

1lb Cara Pils
1lb rice flaked (I used 1lb rice syrup)
Steep at 155 for 20-39 min

2lb DME amber
3.3 lbs LME (I use LME for late extract addition at flame out to keep color lighter)

1 oz Perle 8% 60 min
Irish moss 15 min
1 oz Saaz 4% 5 min


Yeast WLP 002


28 IBU
OG 1.049
FG 1.016

KBR97 I started with a Mr Beer kit last christmas. I brewed some chezch pilsner. Came out alright. Still have a few bottles left hiding in the back of the pantry.

Next thing I did was a 1 gallon batch of apple cider. Really simple and easy to do. I added some cranberry juice to some of the bottles for a little more flavor. Some of my bottles blew up during a pasteurizing incident lol Turned out pretty well besides the bottle bombs.

Right now I have a 1g batch of Caribou Slobber in the primary. Once that is bottled I have a 1g batch of Hefeweizen to brew. After these are all done I have a 5g of Amber Ale that I would like to add some fruit flavor to. Maybe some fresh cherries or blueberries.
05-19-2013 09:06 PM
moscoeb Two suggestions for everyone.

Brewers best Scottish ale kit. Cheap and good tasting. Great beer to introduce people into darker beers or beers with a little more flavor.

A Boston lager clone I just made, closest clone I have made yet! Color is dead in, smell and flavor are extremely close. Very happy and impressed with it.
I'll post recipe if anyone wants it.
05-07-2013 01:52 PM
bardb lol, already thumbing through the recipe kits trying to decide what's next. As for getting started, just always wanted to try and finally did. Thinking about picking up some soft copper tubing from HD/Lowes to make an IC.

I'll give you some advice too, go ahead and order/buy your next kit. As soon as you have a fermenter free, brew it up! Work on that pipeline, because you will always want more stocked up and aging before you finish whatever is ready to drink.

I got 212 bottles of homebrew bottled in various stages! Ruination clone, noble pils clone, altbier, wezenbier, Scottish ale(excellent!), and Boston lager (ale) clone
Got my hands in some free kegs, so now trying to decide my kegging route I want to take.

Let us know how it is!

What's y'all's hefeweizen like?
haha yep me too, that and dirt bikes. me and the go bought those this winter too and are excited to get them on the trails that the jeep can't fit on.

yep I'm on homebrew talk too haha "glassbottom" is my username. lots of good advice on there, helped me out with my java cream stout.

Ya, I thought I was stocked up, but a few friends and some gifted sixers can put a HUGE dent in it!!
I can't keep my noble pils clone stocked. This is the 3rd or 4th time making it and it always goes pretty quick.

I do extract with steeping grains too. I'm debating trying BIAB or all grain in a few years when the kids get older. Just don't have the time or money for equipment right now.
I have been very happy with my brews, even the ones I don't like have been because I didn't like the beer, not an off flavor. Info however let mine age 6-8 weeks before drinking because I have found there is a bitterness till around then. I assume it is a greenness or the extract twang everyone talks about.

Transferred those two to secondary, thinking about brewing the wezenbier today. Need to go get ingredients for my noble pils as I only have 4 left and that is usually a crowd favorite.

Try googling extract recipes and go away from the kits. A ton more choices! Think of a beer you like and just look for the recipe. Just take notes so you can adjust if it isn't exactly like you want.

you have any new ones going?
Oh I usually start trying them around 3 weeks, but don't stock them heavily in fridge until it tastes good.

I have a bottled and ready:
Noble pils 4 left
Ruination 35 left
Orange honey wheat 25 left
Yuri's pumpkin 25 left

I have fermenting:
Scottish ale
German altbier

Waiting for fermenter:
Weizenbier


I try to keep my pipeline full. If I have an open fermenter and extra money, I get ingredients or a kit.

kisportolt haven't had a chance to brew a new batch in a few weeks, but our java cream stout is finally ready to drink! pretty strong coffee taste, but still pretty good. 5oz of coffee in a 5 gallon batch for 10 days may have been too much, but hoping it mellows out over time

Let me know how it come out and what you think, and any suggested changes. I am always looking for suggestions to get better and make better beer.

After 4 weeks in bottle the orange peel was overpowering to me, but a few weeks later and it is just about perfect.
