    Hey everybody. I currently have my first wild beer in the secondary. It's been in there since
    about September '10 and is smelling and tasting sour. I added some oak spirals about three

    possible this cou...

    One thing to take into account when using pilsner malt is that you probably want to do a 90

    I use my heat stick with zinc plated nut. I don't think it makes any difference, although this
    is not an expert opinion so if you get sick don't come crying to me. That said, I made an
    american pale a...
