Been doing some home brews, run across a deal, if any are interested. I've done a couple of their extracts and used a couple for parts, for my own.
https://www.midwestsupplies.com/pages/promos/buy-3-beer-kits-get-each-for-1776.html

These kits come pretty complete, add a pot to boil in, bucket to ferment in, airlock, bottles and caps, you're ready to go.

I'm going for quick easy drinking summer beers.


Boundary Waters Wheat Beer Recipe Kit

Clean and refreshing, this crisp wheat beer is a great beer to drink any time of year. Brewed in true American style, it is well-balanced, smooth and not hoppy or bitter. In fact, it’s free from any German-styled bubblegum and clove flavors and aroma.


•Golden color

•Well-balanced light brew with crisp, refreshing finish

•Liquid yeast option recommended (specify when ordering)

•Ingredients include: 6 lb. Wheat liquid malt extract, 1/2 lb. Caravienne, 1/2 lb. Carapils®, 1 oz. Sterling hops, 1 oz. Palisade® aroma hops, grain bag, priming sugar, and yeast.



Liberty Cream Ale

Popular with our customers, Liberty Cream Ale is perfect for those who enjoy a flavorful, yet lighter-bodied beer. Refreshing and easy to brew, this beer originated from the American light lager style and boasts a creamy head and smooth taste with a pale gold color. A definite one for the beer-loving masses, many of our small craft brewers brew this Plain American-styled beer every second or third time they brew.

Flavorful with a light body

Ingredients include:
•6 lb. Gold liquid malt extract

•8 oz. Carapils® specialty grains

•2 oz. of Cascade pellet hops

•Yeast

•Priming sugar

•Grain bag



Blonde Ale

A Belgian-style Witbier that's tart, spicy, and hazy gold. This beer owes its uniqueness primarily to the yeast, we strongly recommend using one of the liquid strains for this beer. It is light in body but has significant malt flavor underpinning all the other flavors, lawnmower ale with a twist-very refreshing. Our ingredients for this recipe include: 3 lb. Wheat DME, 2 lb. Pilsen DME, 8 oz. Caramel 10L, 8 oz. Flaked Wheat, 4 oz. Caravienne malt specialty grains, 1 oz. Willamette pellet hops, grain bag, priming sugar, and yeast.

Been a long time since I did any home brewing. My favorite was a Molasses Porter.......

I haven't brewed my own since college (5 engineers living together, high amounts of beer imbibing, and some time on our hands.... lead to a 6 tap custom kegerator with custom 100lb CO2 tank). My favorites were always the wheat beers, but I did enjoy a few porters and oatmeal stouts back then too.

I got back into brewing year or so ago. It's like reloading, it saves you money or you get to drink more. With handloading, it's OK to go from few boxes a year, to few thousand a year. With brewing, you can only drink so much and then you have to share. You find yourself scrounging for bottles and if you get good bottle source, you cultivate it. On the other hand, if someone doesn't bring back your empties, you cut them off.

I need to come up with good ultrasonic, for bottles, to remove the labels.
