    Thanks Yoop! I had a feeling the LME being hopped was the fly in the ointment. I think I will
    increase the volume of the boil and then stir in the extract(s). Any suggestions on the timing
    of the hops...

    I experimented with capping a twist off bottle once. Result: Broken bottle AND broken bottle

    Hey Brewsmith, I'm in West Torrance near the South Bay Galleria. I really like South Bay

    to start planning...

    I second South Bay Brewing Supply. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Didn't try to upsell me a
