    I can order one, I was just being impatient and looking for a quick fix. Ingredients are to
    expensive not to wait 2 days for a bucket!I wonder how you'll like it. I prefer buckets to
    glass carboys qui...

    The home brew ones are FOOD grade! They are suitable for processing food without any sort of
    danger of toxins and contamination. They are certified not to leach harmful chemicals into the
    beer or wort...

  • Posted in thread: Fridge to ferment and store homebrew at the same time... on 07-10-2014 at 07:44 PM
    Who does this and how is it working out for you? I am starting to store my home brew a little
    longer than I have in the past... like darker beers for several months - not aging, just
    haven't gotten ar...

    Keep some DME on hand... if you fall a bit short, make it up with DME. Sure, there's no need to
    obsess over gravity, but there's no need not to just make it up with DME and hit the intended
    mark ether...

    +1If you are expecting to see a mini fermentation or something going on in the bottle, it's not

  • Posted in thread: Adding small amounts of salts to the finished product as an experiment? on 07-10-2014 at 05:43 PM
    Got it. I was talking about table salt. In case anyone cares, using table salt as a flavor
    enhancer seems to work also. 1.42 ppm from 1 Tablespoon in 5 gallons, or 0.000142 %. With
    "most" people not t...

    OP my best advice and I'm no pro here, is to not only stick to DI and RO and building up... but
    to also get yourself a water softener - how do you bath and wash clothes in that water? I can't
    imagine ...

  • Posted in thread: Help with Water Report on 07-09-2014 at 06:46 PM
    Are there boulders floating in that water? That is hard stuff. The Mg level is pretty high and
    likely to affect beer flavor. The sulfate level is also quite high. That water might make a
    decent pale a...

    I noted that you have a softener but assumed that this was pre softener water because, yes,
    that is a ludicrously high hardness level for post softener water. In fact it's pretty high for
    pre softener...
