Yes. I almost ordered a kit once but never got around to it. Mostly interested in lager-a-likes and IPAs.

I've been homebrewing for almost 2 years. I've won a couple ribbons at homebrew competitions. I'm also a brewer at a brewpub in town. Also check out the all grain and extract with specialty grain homebrewing links in my sig.

I have two brews under my belt. I have been a mushroom grower for years, but my gf's mom bought me a beer kit for Christmas. I brewed the IPA that came with it. I added ginger to it and aged it til summer. It was very bright and clean, almost no hoppiness at all. Second was a porter that was quickly drank in the remainder of winter. The porter was not a kit, I followed a recipe with specialty grains. I havent brewed anything for several months, just because of lazyness. I bought a Hefeweizen kit the other day. I am going to try to make a rendition of Cherry Wheat. The Sam Adams beer is an American Wheat, and I am using specialty german hefeweizen yeast. It should be interesting. Definately going to let this one age awhile in the bottle.

After that, I think I am ready for some high gravity ales. I could be tempted to make a barley wine but I think first up is a Belgian Trippel. I actually think that I am going to brew a lot of Belg Trippel and throw a party.

I built a bar afew weeks ago and I'm saving up for a draft system. My hope is that I can have four beers on tap at any given moment.

Im going to get a kit today..

I ruined my last one with paint projects and crap so its time..

Ill brew tonight and post some pics.

Ive been brewing for years but only once or twice a year..

Im known for my rasberry "Bud Beer". Just use the water density method of hash making and put the goodies into home made tea bags and steep for a week in the fermented wort. Prime and youve got beer with a kick.. Havnt done that for a long time due to lack of buds.

Just found a nice place on Ventura Blvd. Ill go in about an hour.

Has anyone tried to age a lagar in green glass? Can you get a heineken-like flavor?

whats the heineken-like flavor? Its probably skunking. Green and clear bottles don't provide as much protection from light as brown bottles do. As long as the beer is kept cool(at least 50F-55F) and in a very dark place, there's nothing to worry about. As for it sitting in a hot distribution warehouse and sitting in glass cases in front of flurorescent light at the beer/liquor store all day, that's another problem.

I thought skunking was a desired flavor in some cases and why some beer is not kept in brown bottles.

Is the skunk flavor of Heini a result of bottling and conditions or is it the recipe?


Now Im confused.

Anyway.. Tomorrow I start brewing...

PS. Everything pictured in my post above cost just $150. It includes a 4 piece stainless steel stock piece set that was $50. Everything else with book and pre measured beer recipe and a few extras not found in some online kits was $100.


Soooooo if youve already got a big pot you can brew 5 gallons for just a Bill... After that its just tooo cheep to pass up the opportunity to brew beer.

I dont taste skunking in  heineken, thats my favorite brand. To me

but I,ll drink everything :thumbup:

well, its becoming so prevalent that some people think that it is desirable for heinekens, but I can't stand it, its disgusting. I've heard that some beers are purposely skunked, but I steer away from the macropiss.

Looking at your pictures....I'm going to need to take pictures of my setup.

It is partly recipe but most of the flavor you know as "heineken" comes from the bottling conditions.

heh, I love the skunky beers like St. paulys girl, heineken, and moosehead... I think they all have that flavor with a "bite" to em. I think there is no doubt the color of the glass is what imparts this taste to these beers. I just love a lot of flavor in general but, funny enough, I don't like dark beers. I guess I just like the lighter beers with a lot of flavor.

Please do... I loved your all grain thread and your pics are top notch....

Want to share a good recipe? I like darker beers and now that Ive found a GREAT place for all my needs Im going to experiment.

My newest is a Raucous Red. Everything at this place is fresh and made on site. They then box it up and sell everything pre measured for $19.99


They will also measure a recipe on the spot given what you say you want..

Its a cool place.. They sell cheese making supplies too.. Im going to get the Motzerella kit and make pizza some day.

Its the hops that cause the skunkiness. The isomerized alpha-acids can break down when exposed to light. There are a few beers that don't have hops in it, but its mainly old traditional recipes.

As for my recipes, I'm still just experimenting myself. I get a lot of my recipes from Brew Your Own and Zymurgy magazine. I suggest you subscribe to it if you are really hardcore into brewing.
