That's ridiculous and unnecessary for any beer but especially for a 1.056 OG. Are you sure you

FWIW, I li...

it, me being...

not coming back. So some quick thinking I thinned the mix and busted out the colander and

Posted in thread: First Brew Day tomorrow.... HELP!!! on 08-11-2013 at 08:38 AM

in it. Whe...
