    Got some hop seeds in a "beer garden" kit for Christmas and planted them more out of curiosity
    than anything else. However, they've taken off a bit more than I hoped for and I figured, why
    not? Not ev...

    In my admittedly short experience in bottling, Sam Adams, New Belgium, and Sierra Nevada
    bottles are incredibly easy to remove the labels on. DFH labels seem easy to remove as well.
    Since I've started...

    Thanks for the helpful replies! It appears that the Vinator is worth the cost then. Reckon I

    I should also add that, my kettle being only 7.5 gallons, I filled it up to the 6.5 gallon mark

    I added i...

    Thanks for the quick response :D I mashed in with 3.5 gallons at around 160, which I brought
    down using a cup or two of cold water to about 154. Let it sit for an hour, vourlafed (sp?) and
    drained int...

    Howdy all - long time lurker, pretty new brewer. Made my first all grain batch about 2.5 weeks
    ago, and everything seemed to go quite well. Making an IPA (with close to enough hops to be
