    I'm not sure if the plastic bottle test is that good? I re-yeasts and put sugar in all the
    bottles for a 10 gal batch that never carbonated and used a small plastic water bottle as a

    I have found the addition of fruit gives it a drier finish with the fruity aroma. The mango

    I want to try Cooper's, but can't find it in stock anywhere. Midwest Supply is going to notify
