    A hydrometer reading of 1.000 at 70F will correct to an actual SG of about 1.001 for a
    hydrometer calibrated at 60F (most hydrometers are calibrated at 60F). A SG of 1.001 does not
    mean that fermen...

    In accordance with the 2004 BJCP Style Guidelines, a mead made with maple syrup would be
    entered into the "Open CategoryMead" style (26C). Yes, you could ferment a maple syrup / water
    delution (you mu...

    I too brew in 6 Gal batches (Beer, Cider and Mead). The same ratio holds true. For your priming
    sugar, I would use a little more in the range of 5.0 to 5.3 ounces. To have really sparkling
    cider, try ...

    Lambic is an acquired tast! Of all the true Lambic producers around Brussels, Cantillon is the
    oldest, truest to process and in my opinion, the best. Lindemans is not considered a true
    Lambic by most ...

    Many people have been told that priming bottled conditioned beer should not be done with
    sucrose. Many books state that malt extract is best for priming. Be aware that malt extract
    will generate break...

    As a previous store investor, don't quit your day job, have a good complete business plan and
    enough capital to run the store for at least 1 year. In the Tucson area, there used to be 4
    homebrew suppl...

    I believe that you have a stratified fermentor and need to shake the hell out of it (will also
    help oxygenate the beer for good yeast propagation). This should bring you back into the
    ballpark for the...

    LOL, I think my cheatin' cider batch might be botched. It smells like a sulphur fart coming out
    of the airlock. And its fermenting so fast, my whole kitchen smells like a nasty fart. I had to
    open all...

    The introduction of oxygen to any beer, mead, cider or wine after the yeast have completed the
    aerobic portion of their life cycle can cause oxidation and a stale, cardboard, winy,papery or

    Yea I think I've heard the same thing, organic unpasteurized cider is the way to go. I would
    guess that if you start with a couple cartons of apple juice from the store, you'll end up with
    something l...
