OP, I find it interesting that it took so long for a May birth month. Have you looked at the
statistics on that? The odds of 1 person not being born in May is .91% (or 334 other days of
the year -365)...

In Middle school in a class of about 40 I shared a birthday with one of the other students. I
don't know if there was another duplicated. I'd heard of this before (birthday paradox - or
Posted in thread: Carmalized sugar unfermentable? on 10-10-2016 at 12:27 PM
I used a hydrometer for both OG and FG. I decided to take a half cup, add a bit of amylase, and

Posted in thread: Newbie looking to break more into wine-making - requesting kits to avoid, and tips! on 10-03-2016 at 07:27 PM
I'll admit I've done 2 kit manufactures. Island Mist (think wine coolers, these tend to be
