    I just put down a batch of jasmin green tea. Very little sugar - only enough to get the yeast
    going. I'll post back on how it goes

    Although I am still waiting for my first batch to second-ferment in the bottle, while setting
    the taste I noticed that I was pretty sensitive to the lemon that I added. Somehow, the
    sweetness+ginger+l...

    One year? i am quit sure you cannot. I have heard about apparently-harmless chemicals you can
    use to kill the yeast, but then you can't bottle it again and let it really carbonate. I get
    past this by ...

    hah! I tried that, and I got macro pictures all right. Unfortunately it was a little too
    macro.. I took a single grain and tried to do it up close, but it just turned out as a smooth
    surface unfortuna...

    wings: I haven't tried the head compound before but I saw a lot of recipes for it. I used it in
    my (failed) molasses beer and I thought it worked well, but perhaps it was just the thickness
    of the mol...

    Here are some images. My camera (aka cell phone) cannot do good close ups unfortunately. This
    bottle is 2.8L (96oz), and I added the 2 Tsp ginger beer plant from Yeemos 24 hours ago. You
    can see bits ...

    you're right, I used yeast. I added 1/8tsp of champagne yeast.After working several trials, I
    have to say that the champagne yeast definitely tastes cleaner than the ale yeast (often just
    called brewe...

    My next batch of rootbeer is done.This time (to 3L of water) I added 240g of sugar 4 hops
    pellets 1 Tbsp maltodextrinI read a recipe that called for hops, but it did not give the hoppy
    flavour I expec...

    Thanks for the info!Well, it doesn't necessarily only exist in nature. It could be a product of
    mutated (evolved?) stuff over a few hundred years in people's kitchens, where the end product
    is not the...

    Would you mind elaborating on what you mean by making sure the primary ferment is done, and,
    regarding the priming sugar?Thanks!
