What other kind of hobbies do you guys have? Me? I'm into grilling/smoking meats, baseball
(mostly spectating!), football (ditto), and tuba playing. I'm only somewhat good at a few of
those. The footb...

How hot is really hot? Hot tap water is really hot on my hands, but is not even the best temp

Nope, grassy off flavors should not be an issue at all. Even when I used to dump I never had
that problem.Grassy notes can be an issue when using a LOT of dry hops for too long a period of
time and so...

Weizens are good starter recipes IMO, they are relatively easy to brew and quick to drink. I
