  • Posted in thread: What would be your ideal LHBS? on 04-11-2015 at 02:29 AM
    I think a brewery with a tasting room on one side and ingredient store on the other. It would
    sell exact clone recipe kits.

    It looks like distilled purified water with some iron. Perfect for brewing.

    The headspace in the bottle might contain 02. I've read the bottle filler can cause 02, but I
    don't understand that. Another idea would be using a blichman beer gun to bottle.I'd be

    I use a spreadsheet. Some things I find useful:-How many packages. Like 13+1+1 would be 13oz

    This is pragmatic homebrew science, the purpose is to test whether the average beer drinker is
    able to distinguish between beers with a single variable manipulated; my participants are
