Just got a shipment of grains and yeast from Brewmasters warehouse and I am impressed! Only

Hey all! I currently brew with one other guy and we try to get a batch in every week (usually

Update on the RIS. It has been in bottles since October of 06 and we have just started drinking
it (Jan 07). The taste is great and there are ZERO concerns about infection. It could have been
