This thread is exactly where im at. A mate of mine has convinced me that he makes good kit beers without the twang etc so I'm making a return to kit brewing. all i got 20 years ago was mostly good old crappy twangy home brew.
What I'm taking from this tread is
1. Water treatment, filtered and boiled
2. Yeast change
3. Sanitation routines
5. Fermenting temperature control
This is in my mind, Additional free amino nitrogen to the wort (how to brew discusses the effects of a deficit in kits and extracts).
Has anyone tried adding free amino nitrogen to their wort? Or kraeusening?
Much appreciate your opinions im not going to give up.
I'll podt with results, once I get into it
Join coopers club
Check their recipes and pick 3 or 4 (I like their 2013 and 2017 vintage clones)
Wait till the second week of the month (free shipping)
Order malts etc
Make beer TEMPERATURE controlled, fermenting fridge complete, able to heat and cool is under $200
Tip: order "extras" hops, yeast, grain etc before the extracts so all is ready to go.
This results in the freshest possible extract, also look at their recipe of the month for the easiest way to do a brew (comes complete with hops specialty yeast etc but at added cost)
