    Lastly, try to remember people have been doing this for like 10,000 years.Don't overthink
    it!It's not rocket science and if you're off by a little it's still going to be beer.Relax and

  • Posted in thread: Priming sugar to kick up the ABV? on 02-16-2013 at 03:02 AM
    You can use corn sugar (priming sugar), table sugar or my favorite...Brown sugarand they will

    Extract brewing's greatest appeal to me (with 7 extract brews and a MIAB behind me now after a
    year) is that I can do it maybe five hours so there's less time investment in it.I'm not sure
    how your br...

    My chiller is only 25 feet of 3/8 copper but it really gets the temp down quickly.I've made a
    prechiller for next summer though because when the groundwater is warmer it makes a huge
