My yeast starter boiled over while I was moving the flask off the burner. Hot wort probably

Good advice on checking the accuracy of my Hydrometer. I will check it out this evening. I
purchased the grain crushed from Northern Brewer, I assume they would do a decent crush. It

I neglected to measure the gravity before my boil, so I don't know my efficiency. I had a

Keezer successfully, but will need a refresher before I hook up my fermenter. Good to know I
can find more inf...
