Started a gallon batch of this yesterday afternoon with a new-to-brewing friend. Never done
wine before but this is a great, simple first step. Pitched at 5pm w/EC-118, and we had
fermentation by midn...

This thread is perhaps the nuttiest thing I've read today. I'm all for principle but IMHO, I've
got better things to do than contemplate legal action over an attempted $40 screw-job by some

Yeah - although the OP originally formulated the recipe without, campden+sorbate have since
been recommended to stabilize it, so I'm giving it a go. I might brew up another batch in a few

heard of a ba...

Zekk - What kinda recipe are you working on? And as for temp control, have you tried swamp
cooling? I've gotten pretty decent results with my small-batch brews when I've needed to drop
the temp in a p...

So, what are everyone's brew-year's resolutions? Trying a new recipe? Getting into kegging for
