    As far as American Lite Lagers go, Bud Lite is outstanding. And we (craft beer drinkers/home

    I was listening to Dr. Homebrew from 9/17/15. He was giving someone advice on adjusting his ph.
    In the podcast he stated "... If you have access and training for such things, a little food

    As I understand it, the precursor to DMS is converted to DMS with heat. The DMS is in turn
    "carried off" with the steam, so you need a good exchange of water at the surface of your wort,

    335721Really stupid question, I had a Hannah before which was pretty much automatic everything.

    A month is fine, and as long as the bulk of fermentation happens at lager temperatures letting

    Like I said, there's nothing WRONG with it, but like everything else there are some
    drawbacks.Right. It's not like you're pitching horse wiz into your beer. You make an unhopped
    beer with quality DME ...
