    Glass==Easy to clean, non-permeable surface. Soak it good, get a scrub brush in there if you
    need to, then rinse in hot water, then sanitize.

    Volume might be a bit lower because of the longer boil, but that just means higher ABV.

    Do not use any open-flame burner indoors.It WILL kill you. Carbon monoxide is odorless,
    tasteless and you won't even realize what's going on until you're overcome.If you can't use a
    burner outdoors, y...

    If you consider hops an optional ingredient, in my book, you're already doing it wrong.Eh,
    people brewed for millennia without hops. However, I was being figurative because many recipes
    call for diffe...

    Beer brewing:0. Sanitize.1. Buy extract or mash grains and sparge.2. Boil.3. Add hops

    Since it was an extract, I feel pretty confident it was close to the recipe OG (that LME/DME
    had to go somewhere and it didn't go anywhere but the boil and the carboy). It may have been
    off some, but ...

    That's the recipe OG; I couldn't get a good reading when it was first done because after
    putting it into the carboy I realized I'd forgotten to take a sample and all that was left was
    some pumpkin chu...

    It didn't taste bad, just a bit astringent. Maybe that's the fusel alcohol, or maybe it's just
    green. It's less than a week old and doing well, though!

    When using a steeping bag I pull the bag out, let it drain by gravity, then gently squeeze the
    top above the grains, then move down and do it a few more times, until when I release my hand

    I keep it in my office, which stays pretty much at 69-70 24 hours a day. Don't know what the
    target FG was supposed to be because I modified the recipe; I assume the pumpkin changed it
    some. I figured...
