I brewed a cream ale a couple of months ago. The flaked corn per unit was more than the 6-row
at my LHBS. It was an experiment but I don't think I will bother with "cheap" adjuncts again
when I can ma...

The Mrs and I stopped at a convenience store at the edge of town. I parked in the shade out

Update on the recipe posted in Post #9: Started drinking this weekend. Matches the style well.

For this batch: It is fermenting and you are making beer. Let it ferment for another week or

prime: approx. .8...

I am assuming you are talking about the screw off type caps. I tried it once but the top did
