    Sorry to resurrect an old thread...but I'm interested in making one. Do you just get a drilled
    stopper that fits the inside of the bottling valve? So if the opening on the valve is 3/8", do
    I just use...

    The Imperial Agave Wit, made with agave nectar, is in primary.I have this beer from AHS in
    primary as well. Plan on bottling in 1 week, condition for 3, then have at it. I did all
    extract, since I've ...

    This is what I use anytime I need to naturally carbonate. It will let you dial in the right
    amount of carbonation per style. telling me to use 8.3 oz of corn sugar for a dunkelweizen
    (at 3.9 volumes...

    I noticed the AHS partial mash kits only include about 2-3.5 lbs. of grain...maybe I can get
    away with mashing in the 8 qt. pot after all (3.5 lbs * 1.25 quarts/lb = 1 gallon of water for
    the mash.If ...

    definitely ditch the 2-row for something with more character (biscuit, munich, etc) or just
    drop it.In theory, if the 2-row were included, could you get some additional sugars from the
    specialty grain...

    I will then put the bag of grain back into the now empty 5 gallon pot, and pour in the sparge
    water that was heated in my 2 gallon pot (and a third small pot if i need extra). I will do the
    sparge, an...

    You could also do your mash in a 6 gallon bucket. Just heat up your strike water to about 180
    and pour it into your bucket and then stir the water and let it fall to your strike temp. This
    will pre-he...

    I wouldn't be too concerned with Mash temps since you'll be able to add heat if necessary.You
    mean via pre-heated water...like just pour in a few cups of hot (190*)water to raise the
    temp?For #2, that...
