Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Anyone need another carboy? 6 gallon glass $30 shipped from amazon. Thought I'd share.

Ouch-looks like I'll have to plan for another day. Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Think I'm going to break out the kit today for the first time to make a 5 gallon batch of Hank's Hefeweizen from Midwest.

Approximately how long would you guesstimate I should set aside to do...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

So, I just ordered Hank's Hefe w/ the Wyeast #3068. I'll be brewing it most likely on March 4th. This will be my first real brew.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

My complete newb guess was that the keg lid had a pretty poor seal and caused the fermentation issues or lack thereof. It had 2 weeks in the keg and 3+ weeks in the bottle. However, when I had the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Is hefeweizen a batch that should be avoided by a first-timer? It's going to be the first full week of March before I can get to brewing anything and really want to have some on hand for...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I drank a couple of those last night. It's a tasty beer.

Speaking of clone, I need to find me a Caffrey's Irish Ale. It's kind of a sentimental thing. My dad went to the UK several years ago and...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

My first batch of home brew (Mr. Beer) will be ready at the end of the coming week. I'm really nervous to try it. I followed the instructions, but just hate the idea that it'll be awful. It's the...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Not disputing that-just feel like I could have had a much nicer pot for the same price.

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

That was the plan. Hefe is really the reason why I decided to get into making it myself and is typically a $2.50+ purchase for a decent one it seems. I really wanted to make Hefe, but I almost...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

As in I'm going to WANT or I'm going to NEED a wort chiller? :r

I've inquired on substituting the 7.5 gal pot they sell in lieu of the 4 gal pot. I'll see what they say. I'm also wanting to...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

So, let me ask you this-what's the difference between a foil boil and a half boil I guess?

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

It seems like it was the most complete kit out there for the money. Only change I might make though is get the kit without the pot included. Their shipping brings this kit to around $230 I think. For...

Ok, not hearing back from the craigslist ad.

So, if you were buying a kit today(knowing what you know now), what would you buy? Not looking for an extravagant kit by any means, but something...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I haven't bottled yet. It's still about 10 days away. The kit came with (8) plastic 1 liter bottles. The Mr. Beer fermenter has a spigot at least for easy pouring into each bottle. I haven't...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

Could I get by with just...

Re: Homebrewers - Whats in the fermeter?

I guess if you drink a whole gallon, you might not remember where it went. :r
