    Sounds like more good advice, Superdown. Thanks a million.

    Well, yeah. I'm in.

    Thanks Superdown, I think I will adopt your view on kombucha vs beer - less rigorous, more
    casual approach. I was envisioning capping bottles, so I really appreciate the advice and will
    use mason jars...

    Actually, I see that Superdown somewhat answered this ("Alternatively, add REAL fruit juice and
    bottle for 24 hours to carb before opening."), but I had a few more specific questions. Is it
    safe to bo...

    The Scoby worked out fine. I followed Superdown's advice and it is very good. Getting a new
    batch started on Scoby #1 again, and going to get another vessel so I can use the one I grew.
    Now, can anyon...

    Thanks Superdown! The Scoby hasn't dried out and looks healthy. I'll have it fermenting by next

    I've never made kombucha, but recently received a scoby from a friend. It has been in the
    refrigerator for about two weeks. I have a couple of questions/requests:1) is the scoby likely
    to still be goo...

    Good stuff. Of course it's possible that there are simply more high quality ales and more low
    quality lagers available, and the experts have invested the time to figure this out. Either way
    I guess th...

Hey man, whats been happening? I just brewed up another 17 gallon batch of Dudes, Lake Walk Pale Ale, transferred to the kegs a week ago, Im dry hopping one keg, and the other 2 are in the cellar, I dont farm my hops for sale, I usually end up using them all so far,I will probably have some extra hops in the near future though, I may end up doing a trade of some kind for the extras. I will be looking forward to hearing how the Torpedo comes out, be sure to let me know when you taste it. Good tal

Glad to hear it turned out well, I am planning to brew up Edworts, Robust Porter on the 21st, I just went to the brew store and bought lactose instead of malto dextrin for some reason, I dont know if it will make a difference, do you have any idea if it will? I have 0 exoerience with these 2. I just vaccum sealed 1.75 pounds of hops yesterday,that was the second pickings this season, if you need some centennial hops I can send you a quarter pound, let me know, later dude.

Yes, I did some research, the lactose will not work in this recipe, but I did find 1 pound of Malto dextrin, so I am good to go, will be starting the burners in just a bit, gonna do a 17 gallon batch of the porter, that is funny you ordered pounds instead of ounces, guess you need to get busy brewing my friend, Ill let you know how the porter turns out in a couple months, later dude.

Whats going on man, I fired the brewery up yesterday morning, brewed up 17 gallons of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, everything went well, came up a bit short on the gravity, 1.050, was shooting for 1.054. What about yourself, brewing anytime soon? I am trying to get all the kegs full before it starts getting hot, I will prolly brew once more sometime soon.The IPA sounds like it is going to be good, let me know when it finishes, later dude.
