  • Posted in thread: Is Secondary Fermentation Still Common Practice? on 11-27-2016 at 04:30 PM
    I bulk age in the secondary before kegging. I find it gives a clearer brew without the use of
    clarifying agents, and avoids the first mug of flatelance inducing cloudy ale.

    I ran into a guy today who started an apiary last year and has expanded it this year. He's in
    the Interlake area and he's selling honey from his bees that feed on his clover fields. I

    Tuesday for next week's brew. I need another stir bar anyway.

    trace of red!S...

    That's what I thought, but I wasn't sure. I'll go ahead and keep stepping it up and then save

    I started my Wyeast British Ale II two days before my brew day. On brew day there wasn't enough

    That looks great, VioletBug! What's on tap for the maiden flight?

    The tiles are all on the walls now, except the south wall where the door is. That's because I
    still need a couple of windows before I can finish framing it, but between the French doors and
    the window...

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.
