    There are 2 breweries in Akron that I would recommend visiting, Hoppin' Frog (a mile south of
    Akron) and Thirsty Dog (near downtown Akron).Pretty much every beer that Hoppin' Frog offers is

    That depends on how you want to carbonate the beer.You can either naturally carbonate it via

    My 48qt igloo had a major issue with heat loss. The lid of the cooler was hollow. My mash
    temperature dropped about 8 degrees after an hour because of this. The solution was to drill
    some holes in the...

    Beats me ^_^. You could try emailing Great Lakes about it. I'm sure they could give you a

    I attempted a banana bread beer once. I used 1 bunch of bananas. I added them to my primary

    them for a few ...

  • Posted in thread: What Beer Was Your Point of No Return? on 01-12-2011 at 05:36 AM
