I am pretty new to beer brewing. I started batch yesterday. Extract. Yooper's English Brown
Ale. I made it a couple of times and it came out good. Well, I made a double batch (10

I opened a couple of them at Christmas. One was fine and one was flat. That's why I was

Does anybody know a way to tell if some Sparkling wine a couple of years old is still
carbonated in the bottle without opening them up? I would like to use for a wedding, but I

5 gallon batch. The recipe was for "a basic elderberry wind" and came from Wine Maker magazine.
I don't ...

I made it from berries. It is only a couple of months old. I plan to age it at least a year or
so. I was just concerned about the odd taste it has. I know some of the harshness will go away.

I just bottled up a batch of elderberry wine I started last summer/fall. It cleared up real
nice and looked good. The flavor is kind of strange. It seems to have a certain woody or
resinous taste. I n...
