  • I was at a friends house and he gave me a honey wheat ale that was brewed at a brewfest locally here in BG. It was one of the best tasting beers I'd ever had. At that point I did some google searching and saw some youtube videos on brewing coopers kits. I just started fermenting my first one last night. Australian Pale Ale from Coopers. Nervous but excited about what comes next.

    After a couple treatments of Neem oil and a couple applications of miracle gro It seemed the

    I just bottled my batch. OG was 1.054 and it finished at 1.010 which was higher than I thought
    it would. It is plenty sweet IMO and now I'm curious what it would have done with just straight
    apple jui...

    It looks like you trained two vines per string and it also looks like one of the vines (growing
    up the left string) has been mainly affected by whatever it is that's causing the problem. I
    would check...

    I made a batch of apfelwein 3 years ago and wasn't too impressed. I used brown sugar instead of
    dextrose so I'm not sure if the sucrose did it but there is a terrible sour green apple taste
    that is a ...

    I've found over 4+ years of growing that the two-spotted spider mites want to proliferate once
    the really hot weather arrives. We're not there here, yet, but it's coming.Only finding one,
    though, is h...

    My 2nd year Cascade plant took off like gang busters this spring. The past week and a half or
