    2.4 oz of priming sugar isn't a lot to carbonate a 5 gallon batch in the first place. Check
    this out. Sorry...don't know where my head was...it was a 4.5oz pack, not 2.4. lol. It's the
    standard one ta...

    bottle bombsAnd if you already did what you planned, I would prepare for the possibility of
    bottles bombs, at ...

    Thanks. I will definitely report back when I try one again in a few weeks.Should I definitely
    be leaving them upstairs and not in the 65-69 degree basement? The upstairs is usually 73-76 in

    Thanks guys. Good idea about the wicking to keep cool. Luckily my basement stays locked around
    63-66 degrees so I think I'm fine there.Maybe I'll just put a polo shirt on this one and duct
    tape a blue...

    Other than simply giving my primary and secondary plastic buckets a sweet new look, I figured
    that the t-shirt would help filter out any UV light cast from the basement florescent lighting.

    +1 to blackwater. the beers you are making are really big and i would not expect for them to

    the temp you f...

    First things first, I advocate the idea of "taste but don't judge" your beers til they have
