    I am brewing an all grain AHS IPA this sunday and after reading the directions that came with
    the kit, they seem a little generic with the ingredients just filled in. What I want to know is
    if I shoul...

    can add ...

    Being that this wine was so tart unsweetened, I opened a bottle sweetened it up with some
    simple syrup and found I can make a very good sangria with it. The concord grape has very
    fruity taste which i...

    I wouldn't be able to detect the smell without sniffing the airlock. But my wife said she was
