    WOW that's serious! Ok I'm glad I'm not alone and have less than 50% of what you have on hand.
    Yes it's nice to have all the ingredients you need to brew whenever you can. I know in my life
    right now ...

    PS you might like Nelson Sauvin with cider...Oh, hell yes! I was going to say that but it

    I ferment everything in three 6.5 gal buckets and rack to anything from a 5 gal carboy to a 1/2
    gal carboy. Although I own a couple of 5 gal Better Bottles, I avoid them now. I use a

    I've done SMaSHes with Briess 2-row, Vienna, Munich, Pilsner malt, MO, Pearl, RedX...they're

    using plain old ...

    Yes, I've never appreciated any off flavors from a starter...in point of fact, I always taste

    best word fo...

    I think 1 gal batches have their place, but when I started I quickly found that I put the same
    effort into a 1 gal batch as I did with a 5 gal, and for 1/5 th of the result! I did a single 1
    gal batch...
