    Caffeine In Beer?

    Would adding coffee to the bottling bucket be much different to a few coffee beans into a mash, or would it be a bit riskier? Just thinking that a) coffee cup and ingredients would have to be sanitised, and b ) coffee would have to be stirred into brew maybe risking oxidisation?

    Caffeine In Beer?

    Lovely little poem you got in your sig there mate! Could those flavoured coffee beans you can buy be added to a mash, say vanilla or the like?

    Good point, there are plenty of people I know who taste a beer (usually a stout) and comment that it's really "beerey"...lol The taste of a good beer is what it makes it the style in wich it is!

    Different Opinions...

    If the beer has only been bottled for 5 days Ide say that it isnt ready for drinking yet and wont have full carbonation. I usually wait at least 2 weeks for my bottle primed ones. The sugar content which is yet unfermented could also be giving it funny flavours I'de say it'll be fine in a few...

    Worst Comerical Beer You Had

    How crap do commercial beers taste after having a homebrew-seasoned tongue... After I grew up in my teens sneaking a purchase of VB slabs and drinking that for years, I hadnt touched it in maybe 3 years or so. Then, the other week it was the supplied beer at my brother's wedding reception...

    Barvarian Wheat Beer

    The ESB Wheat Kit comes out a treat, and also works out well if you do a 1 boil with some hops, orange peel and crushed coriander seeds for a Hoegaarden recipe Obviously wont be exactly like the real thing, but good for beginners and a quick brew
