Hey Jeff, I had the same kit as you, and I've put this in one of your previous threads, but I

instructions. They ...

I guess I didn't realise what people meant by swamp coolers and thought they were way bigger
setups. I keep my jugs in the closet at the moment, but when it starts to get warmer, I might
try getting a...

I've got 2 batches of hefeweizen on the go right now, I'm hoping they become a TNT recipe

Trader Joe's has two Nero's Imported Italian Ales that come in one-pint Grolsh-style bottles. I
