    You can cut some of the shoots and plant them. I did a bunch this year. I just made sure I got
    a lot of the root portion (a few feet). Everything except my columbus worked great. I'm no pro,
    so you mi...

  • Posted in thread: BrewToad Or BeerSmith *Worth it*? on 06-29-2015 at 12:15 AM
    I'm a big fan of brewtoad. I think the interface is prettier and more intuitive, plus it's free
    unless you want premium features. Brewsmith has more features and since you install the
    software it work...

    I don't think you should microwave it with the yeast! If I am using dry yeast, I boil water in
    a pyrex measuring cup (1 cup water in a 2 or 4 cup pyrex). If you cover it with plastic wrap it
    will boil...

    I see this posted a lot, but wouldn't it require an entirely separate gas line with a liquid

    depressurization). Then cold crash it for a few days before serving again.

    CO2 dissolves much better in cold beer. You should always try to chill bottles for several

    I second the brown malt - at least a pound. It just tastes right in porters. I always put Black
    patent malt in my porters too. At least half a pound - I put half in a 6.5 gallon batch.Also,
    you probab...

    If you are going to brew again - Special B and Dark Candy syrup can give raisin-like flavors.I
    don't have any experience with adding actual raisins to beer. There are special raisins made
    for baking t...

    The EZ cap gaskets only last for 4-5 beers before they should be replaced. So, it's possible
    that you just had a poor seal on some of them. Uneven sugar mixing (which is hard to do) seems
    very unlikel...
