    I helped my neighbor brew his first beer tonight. Hopefully it turns out well

    My first RIS was the Old Rasputin clone published in BYO. $77 for 5 gallon batch and worth
    every penny.

    Fermentate - Im not exactly sure of the metric. When carbonation is discussed the units are
    always volumes or co2. The calculators I was referring to split up sugar measurements into
    table, corn and d...

    From two different carbonation calculators, 3/4 of a cup is 6 oz of dme. This will give you

    then add it to t...
