Posted in thread: Amylase? Mash or fermentation? on 11-20-2014 at 09:00 AM

Sounds great! Yeah it cost $60.00 to ship to Anchorage instead of $23.00 I just paid to ship

Well this one snuck up on me to be honest. It's come and gone and I don't have a recipe yet. I

Next time sacrifice an old shirt or sock, or the wife's nylon hose. Unless you like this method

Yeah! I sampled a test bottle a few weeks ago and it produced a tiny hiss. Very light
