  • I always found our American history to be intriguing..American moonshiners past and present, the Whiskey Rebellion,the folly that was (and still is) Prohibition. I began to really enjoy local beers (Bells Beer in Comstock/Kalamazoo, MI) and at the same time began to garden and grow/can/pickle my own food. So, I thought, "If I can grow my own food, I can make my own beer." I actually made 5 gallons of hard cider as my first brew of choice, because it was fall and SW Michigan has many cider options available. It turned out very strong and too much of an astringent taste, but that didn't stop me from enjoying every last damn drop!

    Apple Jacker, I don't know what it is but just a guess, maybe bacterial leaf spot? You'd see
    spots on the leaves too. If it is, Serenade can help suppress it. The copper should be helpful
    too.The leav...
