before and keggi...
Posted in thread: Newbie Here - Is a Secondary Fermentation Necessary?? on 10-31-2014 at 06:28 PM
Hi and welcome to HBT !Secondary fermentation is definitely not mandatory. If you have the same

Please explain what these obvious reasons are? Many of us leave our beers in plastic buckets
for 3 to 4 weeks and I have left one for more than 60 days with no obvious problems.Well, from

I do think switching all-grain led to and improvement of my brewing skills as well. I focused
more on the process. I also find a great deal of satisfaction transforming those dry grains

Posted in thread: Will this heating element work for a brew kettle? on 09-12-2014 at 01:04 AM
