    Just a quick message to anyone that is sitting on the fence and not sure if they should order
    from Ontario Beer Kegs: I don't have any connection to OBK but I have ordered from them 3 times
    and I am a...

    I would love a code as well! Time to upgrade my kettle! :)

    Thanks folks! From the sounds of it AZ_IPA's original melamel went over well when served
    carbonated so that's what got me thinking I should do the same. Perhaps for force carbonating
    with CO2 is the w...

    I have had my first mead (AZ_IPA's raspberry melamel) bulk ageing in a carboy for nearly 2
    years now and I would like to carbonate some in bottles so I can give it to friends as a gift.
    Should I add a...

    Great stuff Revvy! I have been wondering what I could use as an inexpensive thermowell. I
    checked at my local Home Depot and Rona but the only rigid supply lines I could find were
    chrome plated copper...

    Sorry to resurrect this thread again, but volcar- any tasting notes on your chai stout?

    Well looks like I might be in trouble here. I took a hydrometer reading yesterday after 9 days
    of primary and my gravity is still 1.030. Some bubbles were present on the surface of the beer
    but much o...

    Sorry, forgot to mention that I was using an electric blanket for heating, but you would
    probably have better heat distribution if you used a water bath and aquarium heater. I
    initially had the electr...

    Hey MisterShah, I started to warm mine up near the end of Day 5. I have brought it up to about
    80 F (27 C), which is admittedly outside the temperature range listed on the Wyeast website,
    but I think ...

    Thanks for the advice everyone. I have started to warm this up. I am kind of hoping for the
    best of both worlds. With some restrained Belgian characteristics throughout the bulk of
    fermentation but ho...
