  • Always wanted to brew, my brother-in-law just opened a homebrew store so he hooked me up. Got a turkey fryer off Craigslist and a 20-qt Martha Stewart SS brewpot. Now I'm just trying to figure out how it all works!

    I think OP was asking about glass or plastic serving bottles, not fermenters.

    cooties, it's the random chemical spills I'd be worried about. Paint thinner, bug & weed spray,

    Well, what a glorious clusterf*** I made of this! Things got a little crazy Saturday, so I
    wound up forgetting the recipe when I went to the LHBS. I thought I remembered pretty well, and
