    I'm getting ready to brew a traditional Berliner Weisse, and am trying to decide between a)
    pitching Lactobacillus bacteria to the green wort with the yeast, or b) simply adding lactic
    acid to the fer...

    you used Agave nectar? How does that taste?I don't think the agave really affected the taste.
    Although under carbed, the cider tastes a bit like a sweet, flat champagne.

    I brewed a strong cider and bottled it a week ago, but after opening the first bottle, there's
    virtually no carbonation at all. Here are the specs...OG: 1.074FG: 1.014ABV: ~8.1%In addition

    My sincere apologies for opening the "Is selling homebrew legal?" can of worms... I'm sure HBT
    has servers full of threads covering that.There is really nothing wrong with calling your home

    I'm trying to come up with a name for labeling my homebrews. Is there any risk in calling my
    homebrew operation something like "Uptown Brewing Company" even though I don't have a
    registered business o...

    Thanks ilikethetrees! I live in Uptown Mpls, just two blocks from that Penzey's location. I
    picked up the berries I have from Midwest Supplies in St. Louis Park, but I may check over at
    Penzey's - the...

    Update for anyone interested, I tried a bottle of the problem Fat Tire clone last night, ten
    days after bottling. The taste isn't distinctly metallic, but it's still pretty bad - barely
    drinkable. I t...

    Nice vid. That does look like something fun to try, although since I'll be using an extract kit
    I'd have to just add the branches to my boil. After giving it some thought, I think I'll make
    two batche...

    I'm getting ready to brew a batch of Midwest's Winter Ale some night this week. I picked up
    some Juniper berries and want to use them in this brew but was hoping for some advice on how is
    best to add ...

    I've now racked the second batch I used the new chiller on. I used the same enamelware pot, and
    there was no noticeable metallic taste. It was a cider, so it's possible that the sweetness
    somewhat hid...
