What I did for for a plastic bucket that produced vinegar beer: heat some water to about 150F
and transfer to the bucket, dumping in a half cup of bleach as you go. Let it soak till it
cools and repla...

A lot of folks here use a Corona Mill. I nearly bought one but folks here were telling me about
the Barley Crusher being so much better so I went that route. It probably doesn't matter based
on the ef...

Wow. I've never heard of that. I'm sure if you mention what state your in folks closer to you
will chime in with better LHBS. The one i use is in Bethlehem, PA (Keystone Home Brew) and
they've always ...

Okay screwed up. I realized I only used 7.5# Marris Otter (in addition to 8 oz 40L crystal
malt). Realized it when trying to figure out how I missed my original gravity. I didn't bother
with DME. How ...

Nearly sprayed my computer screen with coffee when I read the OP in this thread. Seriously
there are folks who make hop tea, but this would likely be far worse than that. It's all about
balance. Yes y...

I read someone saying it was your first? Eh, i had problems with my first AG batch, and ended
up making one of the best beers i've ever had... Even if it's not your first, 4.5 gallons isn't
