    I'm a Beer, Beer and More Beer guy for most of my equipment and my kits. I have had great
    response and delivery responses from them. They are UPS, I would prefer FedEx

    You could try re-priming each bottle, but exactly how much suger will be the tricky
    part.Before you go and do this swirl each bottle to mix up the yeast that has fallen out and
    put them in a room tha...

    They are high gravity Belgian type ales brewed in Quebec. I can't remember the brewer,
    Unibroue, and yes you will remember these!I started keeping the labels, the bottle idea crossed
    my mind but sound...

    Now, I was home sick last week and it hit the mid 50's (a rare occasion in South Dakota in

    kegs and then...

  • Posted in thread: Unfilled Space on 02-06-2005 at 02:34 PM
    I am getting one bubble every two minutes or so. Will this open space cause oxidation in my
    beer? The bubbling action is good, that means that there is at least a layer of CO2 on top of
    the beer and...

  • Posted in thread: mashing, steeping.. what? on 02-06-2005 at 02:28 PM
    Everything I've brewed so far I've used malt extracts. I'd like to learn how to "start from
    scratch"... meaning using all raw ingredients. I live in barley country and barley is easy to
    find (just thr...

    brewer. I w...
