    Brewed this 2 months ago for a friend. With some changes, added 1 lb. brown rice syrup, & 12
    oz. honey. Turned out great, the additions balanced it out. I'd brew it again, and my friend is
    a fan too. ...

    I'd just peel it and grate it then toss it in. It is as somebody stated earlier it is a natural

    and your sam...

    Bottling Gnomes at my house. Got set up and ready to bottle, had to hit the head before I

    Initially you were looking for a more flavorful chicken. Did you look at Capon? More flavorful than a conventional chicken. I see them from

    Thanks John, took a gravity reading after work today. Looked like the krausen was starting to
