Posted in thread: Refrigerator -> cellar? on 07-25-2012 at 10:01 PM
I had some beers cellaring for a while at room temperature, but about a year ago someone put my
beers in an extra fridge. Will it wreck them if I return them to the cellar, since they've been

Posted in thread: Can I add sugar at any time after primary? on 06-12-2012 at 04:35 PM
I'm planning to add sugar (10-20% of fermentables) to my fermenter, but it's nearly a week in
there. Seems like I should be able to add without problems, but I'm wondering if there might be
Posted in thread: Hardware store vinyl ok for mashing on 06-12-2012 at 01:46 PM
I built another mash tun but the hardware store didn't have the nipple size that matches my

Posted in thread: Are old grains usable or should I toss them? on 01-05-2012 at 11:17 AM
I have a sack of 2row grains (uncrushed). It was not vacuum sealed nor is it particularly air
