sticky wicket good beer
I waited to comment on this until the beer was ready- the Oatmeal Stout I ordered is perfect, and cheaper to ship (free, since it was sold by amazon) than any other seller I could find. The premium mr beer refills are a marked improvement from the standard ones. I recommend the "sticky wicket" for anybody interested in Mr Beer homebrewing who enjoys a dark beer.
Great Tasting, Cheap Beer
I like to modify my brews and this one was no exception. I was going for a mocha stout. I added 1/2c molasses 1/2c brown sugar, and 3tbls of dutch process baking cocao. Then at the bottling stage added and ounce and a half of espresso to each bottle. The chocolate flavor is pretty subtle, and the coffee flavor is mostly aroma. I definitely plan to brew this one again with a few modifications. Please note that I fermented for 3 weeks, warm conditioned for 2, and cold conditioned for 1. The flavors mellow out with extra conditioning time. I may have to brew this one as is to find out what mr beer intended it to taste like. Keep in mind whenever you add more fermentable sugars it increases your fermenting time. There are far too many people that rush their beer making resulting in less than satisfying results. I personally have 2 batches going at all times, and may end up doing 3.
Awesome! Great flavor!
This is my first brew with my Mr Beer system, and I'm very impressed! I fermented it for two weeks, had it in bottles for five weeks, and chilled it for two days before opening... It's extremely dark (basically black), and has great flavor. The only downside is that it's a bit lacking in body, which some other Mr Beer users have suggested solving by using "steeping grains". It's a pretty easy thing to do, and should greatly improve the quality... I'll be doing that on the next batch, but I wanted to try one "as-is" so I'd have a baseline.
Overall, highly recommended! Dark beers are my favorite, and this one is great!
