BTW, this turned out excellent. Nice apricot bouquet and color, not as obvious on the flavor. I
cooked the dried apricots (Trader Joes, with sulfites, 3 lbs for 6 gal cider) in a little water
for an h...

Hi, with camping season upon us, I'm soliciting recommendations for microbrew style beers in
cans to take on the trail. What's your fave aluminum clad hoppy wonder brew?

Imo I don't think you'll taste it. At .5 lbs / gallon, there won't be much influence. Then when

Planning to dispense 3 corny kegs through a steel plate jockey box. The beer will be fully

I suggest entering a local competition. it's a great way to get feedback from experienced

Omitting pectinase may inhibit clearing. On the other hand it may not. Pectinase may be added
