    Don't worry - many very experienced Brewers simply use tin foil on the top for the first
    several days...look up Yorkshire squares or the burton Union system... That will calm you down

    This may have been mentioned - but I'll add it anyway...was just listening to the CYBI episode
    in. holgate nut brown - and the brewer mentions he was inspired by the southern pecan beer from
    LM. He sp...

    Heavy - sorry for the silly question, but what's the difference between the steeping hop

    Mine connected within 10-15 seconds - downstairs from the router. Was easily able to set up

    scientist, and I only publish things if I get the same results in at least three separate
    experiments). I actua...

    was about to throw mine away it was such a pain. Now, great - just make sure
    you have a ...

  • Posted in thread: How Important is Sodium Level? on 05-15-2016 at 01:52 PM
    Good question here. I have been essentially ignoring sodium when building water from RO, adding
    only gypsum, calcium chloride, and Epsom to target the ca, cl, and sulfate targets. I figured
    there was ...
