    I would stay away from lemon peels and go with pure juice if you want more lemon zest. I used
    orange peels in a beer I made once and it came out tasting like a wet dog. Had to dump it.I
    have made 4 ba...

    If you want to add it to secondary, just soak the peels in vodka/everclear for a few hours
    before adding them. I usually add the peels for my citrus beers at flameout. Sent from my
    iPhone using Home B...

    I recently made a batch that was in my plastic fermenter for nine weeks. I was intending on
    bottling after 4, but something always came up whenever I had the time. It turned out to be one
    of my better...

    Great, and thanks. Thought I might be over-thinking it, but had to be sure.

    I am making a belgian honey wit that I racked onto honey in the secondary. I am wondering how I
    would figure out my final ABV after adding the extra fermentables in the secondary. My OG was
    1.064 and ...

    I had this same problem a couple of months back. I could see bubbles forming in my liquid line
    and was lucky to get less than 3/4 glass of foam. Tried everything and it ended up being my CO2
    tank bein...

    Digging the VW as well. Looks pretty clean. Used to drive a 73 super and have since upgraded to
    an '04 .:R32.

    The airlock activity is most likely co2 that was dissolved in your beer escaping because of the
    racking. This is normal and nothing to worry about.

  • Posted in thread: Aluminium or stainless steel kettle? on 04-09-2013 at 06:03 PM
    I use a turkey fryer that has an aluminum pot. I have no issues getting it clean if I wash it
    right after transferring my wort to the fermenter. All I have to use is hot water and a sponge
    w/o the gre...

    I made this a few months back and it came out extremely well, so I decided to share. Turned out
    very dry and refreshing. Corriander and orange peel work well with the citrus type hops. Very
    yummy and ...
