    Thanks for the input guys. The plastic wrap suggestion got me thinking about clear packaging
    tape. After searching some more on the net, I found that several people have used it
    successfully. Plus it ...

    I recently found a 2'x2' chess board at a lawn sale and want to turn it into a pub table by
    pouring some 2 part epoxy on it. I plan on using a temporary frame to surround the playing
    surface to contai...

    Back in mid April, maple syrup season started here in upstate NY. I visited an open house at a
    local sugaring farm and picked up a 1/2 gallon of extra dark maple syrup. I used it to make up
    a batch of...

    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...

    bottling after 4, but something always came up whenever I had the time. It turned out to be one
    of my better...

    I am making a belgian honey wit that I racked onto honey in the secondary. I am wondering how I
