    Well the sample I took after adding the DME and sugar still tasted good and the blowoff from
    the fermentation smells like a citra bomb so I have high hopes.

    So I was brewing a clone of Lawson's Double Sunshine yesterday and was teaching a buddy who

    It looks to me like the freezer lid is not sealing correctly.Crane had a great idea--fill up as

    I'm only opening the lid once a day now to wipe down the condensation and grab some beers out

    there is on...

    I'm looking at the same chest freezer. It's on sale for July 4th from Home Depot.How many kegs

    We don't get it out here in CT, but I have had my fare share of the real deal and from memory
    my version came out more hop forward with stronger fruit tones.Real Fresh Squeezed has a
    maltier flavor wi...

    Built a three tier stand awhile ago from spare lumber.It is kind of weathered now from being

    elements.I want...
