    Hey all! Looking forward to new ideas and better brewing process. Just started last year with Mr Beer and have made about 4 batches. All I can say the stuff has been drinkable, but that's about it.
    Just did my moved up to the next step with a pale ale, from a Brewer's best kit. And while the process was fairly easy, my results were not what they were suppose to be. I just did a gallon. My o.g. was suppose to come in at 1.051-1.055, mine was 1.046. Did a primary and secondary fermentation. S.G. came in at 1.010. Which according to the calculator, alc. is 4.7%, which I guess is ok. The smell was decent, but the taste wasn't as sweet as people say its suppose to be. Anyway, I bottled up about 7 or 8 12oz bottles and they are conditioning. I'll probably let them sit for about 2-3 weeks.

    Looking forward to learning more!

    I used Brewer's Best kits for years. That's a good product. Hang in there, you'll get it.

    Welcome.

    Brewing is doing, and then re-doing

    Other than weighing ingredients and temperatures, im not much for measuring or being super accurate. Its usually close enough for government work as they say
