+1 on beerlabelizer.com. If you pay the author $5.00, you are given access to additional label

If you are heating your wort on an electric or gas stove, you may not get a rolling boil with a
batch greater than 4 or 5 gallons. I brew on a gas stove, and if I have more than 3 gallons
going, it ba...

I'm moving from stovetop to outdoor propane burner, and have been looking at simple propane
burners. The SP10 gets a lot of good reviews, but it sits low to the ground, and I would think

I too thought that milk was a crazy idea, but I tried it and it worked fine. I used 2% milk. I

After reading several posts, I decided to make a "marinade" of McCormick Pure Orange Extract
and ground coriander seed, let it marinate for a week, then add a little of the liquid to the
racked batch ...

How about Triple Sec to add orange flavor? I'm sure there is sugar in it, so probably wouldn't
add when bottling, since it could increase carbonation more than you'd want. Could you add it
at the end ...

Congrats on your first batch! Your bucket appears to be at least a 6.5 gallon bucket, leaving
enough space for the foaming during fermentation, so unless you have a leak in the spigot, I

Thanks for the suggestion. Should I strain the vodka/coriander so that only the liquid goes
into the bottling bucket, or just dump it all in and wait until the solids settle in the bottom
of the bucke...

I realize now that McCormick Valencia Orange Peel is dried orange peel, so I wouldn't want to

alcohol and co...
