    Got my BB a couple of weeks ago. THANKS BEN!!! It's pretty.I had a couple of bottles to fill
    before I got the bottling wand set up so I tried it just with a long hose attached to the
    adaptor, and it f...

    PS - I dosed it with a smashed up campden tablet, then went with Safale S-04 and because the
    press broke during initial use, we ended up just using our awesome juicer to get the juice
    outta the apples...

    Using a stronger wood is only addressing the symptoms of the problem, and not the underlying
    cause. As roadymi said, you need to grind up the apples into a pulp. Simply cutting them up
    will not do, al...

    So I made cider this past weekend and it was a miserable failure, the press was at least. I'd
    like some input on my presssing process as I may have just done it wrong or something. Not sure
    what to sa...

    Is there a need to filter the juice before it goes into the fermenter, or does the cheesecloth
    handle that for you? Also ideas on the type of store to get a piece of cheesecloth large
    enough, or can I...

  • Posted in thread: 'Non-spiced' Pumpkin Ginger Ale on 10-26-2012 at 05:34 PM
    This came out good. I ended up making a vanilla extract with about 8 oz of vodka and 6 vanilla
    beans cut into pieces. I added about 3 tablespoons of this extract to the batch after I kegged
    it, and ma...

    Hey everyone! I've been making mead for several years, beer for about a year, and have a pretty
    strong understanding of fermentation in general. I recently acquired a press that was mostly
    rotted out ...

    Sorry to hear about the relapse; I hope you took enough time to take care of yourself and we're
    glad to hear that you are back in the saddle again!Having said that, I'm excited to hear you're
    making t...

    Hmm, yeah, good point, I suppose in commercial setups they don't have to worry about yeast at
    all. Personally I wouldn't worry about actually eliminating headspace, as the beer would be
    falling into a...

    Here is what you need to do: This will greatly simplify things for you... Make up a short line
    with the same diameter tubing as the rest of your system. Put a gas QD on one end, and a liquid
    QD on the...
