    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

    I have used the corn sugar to "bump" ABV, but like my beers in the lower range to be more
    session-able. Really like the Apfelwein idea! And if it won't hurt the little guys, will use it
    in the humming...

    Fun thread till it got serious. Have to admit the title "Ask me anything!" just couldn't be

  • Posted in thread: Any ideas about using excess corn sugar? on 01-23-2015 at 06:06 PM
    I brew a lot of extract kits, because I enjoy trying different styles, but I usually keg
    instead of bottling. I end up with corn sugar I don't use. I thought about using it for humming
    bird food, but ...

    It's fine, I always start with a blow off tube into a jar of starsan, saves the mess. When the
    brew is fermenting, it's pushing out carbon dioxide, and there is low chance of infection.
