    Got one part of my three items today. (Seems UPS would rather use three trucks to get stuff
    here, every one has different status today.)My machine got here, but the shock sticker was red.
    This appears...

    I'm ok with negative reviews, but this part is silly:>>But that’s what the Zymatic
    promised to curtail, and to put it simply, it didn’t. My other big gripe: a lack of
    regard for fermentati...

    Surprised your HOA would allow solar panels...considering how uptight they were about the
    cooler.

    The PB boils at 207F. DMS is driven off and hops are isomerized, I assure you. In MN (800ft
    above sea level) boiling temp is 210F so don't get caught up with thinking 212F is boiling temp
    everywhere. ...

    Wow -- cool -- I just ordered a can. For $21, it's quite a bit cheaper than HopShot (I've got
    loads of syringes, too -- bought when I wanted to a nice sized syringe for the Pico's sample
    port.)How muc...

    I've started to add NB's hopshot about 2 minutes before the boil is over. I've been using a
    single syringe, but I may step up to 2 at the end of the boil for my next IPA.If you are using
    Hop extract e...

    Surprised no one has posted this yet, C-Net Picobrew review.

    I did brew the extract recipe exactly as is.I did the reading pre bottling - so de-gassing
    wasn't the issue.This was actually my first yeast starter, active fermentation was great. I
    live in Boston in...

    Forgot to mention I did know my OG at 1.053, so I was happy with that. I used a hydrometer to
    measure both OG and FG.I can't really answer why your beer stalled out around 1.020...without
    knowing your...

    Hoping for some feedback here:Brewed this recipe, even made a yeast starter with the White Labs
    Irish Ale Yeast. About two weeks in I added a mixture of vanilla beans and bourbon (that had
    been sittin...
