Pilot drill with a 3/32 or 1/8 bit. Drill slow with some moderate pressure and oil. Use a

If you bottle condition, you will have yeast on the bottom of the bottle, period. There is no

Beer will eat plating plum off, and once it starts, there ain't no stopping it. I would suggest

Unfortunately, at the moment I am at the mercy of Mother Nature, as I have no way to control
fermentation temps. My garage is sitting at about 65* or so, about 5 degrees below the

Wyeast Farmhouse Ale 3726. One thing to note, the yeast in the jar had noticeable activity,
