From what I recall, there were a few screws holding the shelf in position - a couple on either

A bit late to reply, but in the hopes that someone else stumbles across this thread someday,

I hate to bump, but no one answered a follow-up question:Since I'm using an airlock and a
half-gallon glass chug: Would it harm anything if I took the airlock off and tasted the mix? Or

Dunno. Going out on a limb here, but starting with cold(er) water would give you a chance to at

Going on the point lowlife made, a partially non-roasted + partially roasted bill - even if the

I wasn't sure which forum to stick this question under, and it might be a silly question in
