    If your going to ferment in them, use a blow off tube instead of air lock. With that much
    volume (35-55 gallons) there will a lot of CO2 leaving quickly, I don't think a standard air
    lock will handle ...

    My first suggestion would be to switch to bottled, or RO water, I use Crystal Geyser at about
    .88 cents a gallon. Most of the beer I make are hoppy ales, I've done the Morebeer Pliney The
    Elder kit 3 ...

    My first home brew was a blonde ale kit, made with a starter home brew package (bucket,
    hydrometer, 5 gal kettle, etc.) It turned out great, so much so that I was instantly hooked on
    home brewing. My ...

    Welcome to the obsession, you started with a fairly complex beer, and are getting in way faster
    than I did. I started with a $100. starter kit and a blonde ale. Turned out great and I was
    hooked. Of c...

  • Posted in thread: Why LME vs DME? on 07-20-2015 at 09:56 PM
    LME added at flame out, all my brews have specialty grains steeped, hop utilization always
    good, no twang, always great beer results. Prefer More Beer's foil sealed bags of LME. Usually
    warm the bags ...

    Hah, you just forgot the yeast. How about this, I forgot the extract today! I do flame out
    extract addition. I've got Mom on the phone (cell) and the boil and additions are almost done,
    OK mom, happy ...

    A couple of points, as others have mentioned, temperature control during fermentation is very
    important. I use a cheap 7 cubic ft. chest freezer with a temperature controller. Water, I have
    good well ...

    I do most of my shopping online, from multiple companies. The variety is fantastic, the prices
    are competitive, and shipping is reasonable. The UPS guy probably thinks I'm a drunk :p But I
    love good b...
