  • JE, (froggyfrog), got me into brewing. Or maybe I made him allow me to participate. It's hazy, at best. Either way, I jumped straight into all-grain, and have never stopped to look back. I have no fear of trying new things, doing things slightly "against the rules", don't give two sh*ts about "what some book says", and am willing to put anything into a beer, just to see what becomes of it. I brew what I drink, and fortunately, I make some rather good beer, except for those couple of batches that I hated, and some of the rest of you really liked. You know who you are, and I thank you for drinking them.

    I have the same problem with Gambrinus. They have a tag stitched to the bag closure. Open the
    bag, the tag is now loose. Throw it in the bag, it somehow buries itself before you open it

    For the most part, the dominant flavors in whiskey come from the barrel it was aged in, and
    this will be especially true if you'll be diluting it in mead.+1 on the oak chips.

    At first I was going to say you were crazy, until I found out that purchased new, the locks
    cost more than the faucets! Wow. $35 is a good deal.

    there, it...

    A quick search leads me to believe there is no separate yeast strain. Kvass is a low alcohol
    drink made with bread. One site had a recipe and they used US05 yeast. Another used s-04.Nope.
    It exists. N...
