    I had to pick "Other" since all my batches come from my well water. We've got some of the best
    tasting water straight out of the ground here where I live.

    Wheat ale would be a good base for your fruit. I've done a cherry ale that worked great that

    Pound the stopper? Woah! I've never had to pound my stoppers in. I just push them on, firmly.

    You know, before this batch that I've got fermenting right now (Merlin's Ale), I've always had
    my brews in a orange plastic bucket. With this brew, I put it into one of my carboys. Watching
    the foam b...
