    That sucks. I guess I take the 100+ microbreweries and extensive beer shops around my area for
    granted. No man should have to travel outside of his city for a decent beer.

    Yeah- I just prime all my beer 5 oz. corn sugar (dextrose) to 5 gal. beer. I know that
    different styles are supposed to dictate different levels of carbonation, but this works for

    I love my LHBS's but don't forget about Craigslist. I just scored a second brew pot with a ball

    pots are ...

    I'm new too and also read How to Brew. In addition I read Homebrewing for Dummies. IMO

    order to drive a car y...
