I too thought that milk was a crazy idea, but I tried it and it worked fine. I used 2% milk. I
poured some milk in a bowl, dipped my finger in, wiped the milk all over the back of the label,

A friend and I were drinking a commercial belgian white while bottling a batch of weizenbier,

After reading several posts, I decided to make a "marinade" of McCormick Pure Orange Extract

racked batch ...

How about Triple Sec to add orange flavor? I'm sure there is sugar in it, so probably wouldn't

at the end ...

My friend and I just brewed a batch of Brewer's Best Weizenbier. It's been in primary
fermentation for 14 hours, and it's chugging away. Got to thinking about Blue Moon, and thought
it would be nice t...

Just bought a Ferrari vinator sulfiter bottle rinser for my bottle sanitizing. Works great!
After we finished bottling, I took it apart to rinse it and allow it to dry out, and noticed
that the spring...
