    yea, I just shoved them in there. My hands and the the carboy were clean and sanitized. W/ all
    the alcohol in there and the hops, the risk of infection wouldn't be too great.Exactly, the
    hops themselv...

    It's a Heather wheat I really like and have done a few times. Either no hops or 1oz with hops
    for bittering. It's got a crisp/tart flavor. A lot of Heather beers are done in more on a

    I don't know if the "liquid kit you're talking about will make significantly better beer than
    you're making now.My suggestions are going under the assumption that you are willing to
    sacrifice a bit of...

    I've got an American Wheat I'd be interested in trading with a few people for critiquing
