    I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, hiking, and just about any other out-door activity.

    Although I work in human resources / payroll, I am formally trained, and sealed as a chef.

    I have three children, who occupy much of my free time.

    Just tried this one today. I swapped out the lemon juice however for 1 cup of fresh orange
    juice (my kids love orange and ginger ale mixed).Thanks for the recipe.

    I tried to brew a combination of 2 lbs liquid bleach, 2 lbs liquid ammonia for mine after she
    gave birth but evidently -- somewhere, someone made a silly law about that kind of thing so I
    bought her a...

    You're fine. 1.010 is about the minimum you'll see. The bubbles now are most likely residual
    CO2 exiting as a result of the rising temperature. You said you were going to leave it 2 weeks
    and then dry...

    It is fine. I'm going to guess that you are fermenting in the lower range of this yeast, say in
    the 60's? That will slow things down. If you let it slowly warm, it will get even more mileage
    and drop ...

    I'm most likely jumping the gun, and I'll get told so - but I'll never know unless I outright

    Generally, all the recipes are the same in technique. You steep the cracked grains in a grain
    bag in 150-160 degrees, and you can dunk it like a teabag if you want. I just stir to make sure
    the grains...

    I think I may make an attempt at one of the extract recipes on this site, they all look so
    tasty however - such a decision. Where I'm getting stuck, and perhaps I just need to do a bit
    more reading/re...

    I've just emptied out my primary, cleaned it, and put it away and I thought -- "Self, don't put
    it away, it'll get lonely! It needs some warm, lovely liquid to keep it happy" so I decided to
    come here...

    Thanks for the quick reply, I primed with 165g. All bottled and ready to go, kind of excited
    now - had about 1/2 a bottle in the bucket, so I chilled it and drank it. Tasted very nice
    (mind you, sweet...
