Beer: Brewing and Blending!
In fact, the Mr Beer container/keg may be better for experimenting with numerous recipes, and/or if you just prefer smaller batches..
If you are a grain brewer, by all means BOIL your grain; but for extract brewers do NOT boil the extract itself. Rather, boil the water, then turn the flame off and add the extract to the already boiled water, and stir!
Re BOIL YOUR HOPS-NOT THE EXTRACT MALT !!!!!!!!!!
Remember the old KISS Method: Keep It Simple, Stupid!
(My Motto: Simplicity and Continuity!)
HOPS: I prefer to not boil the hops at all; just dry hop only.
So much for homebrewing.
brewer to Blender after many years on and off of home
brewing. My comments here are the gist of what I experienced and learned. I was never a grain brewer nor desired to be.
What I call “blending” is simply mixing one beer (bottled, cans, etc,) with another.
To me, this made some beers, which I later also used as a mix, better, as well as making both the mix and the added to beers better, for my tastes, anyway..
this is my experience and my own likes and dislikes.
