    Sigh...Ok, first of all, dry yeast isn't "engineered" any more than liquid yeast. Its the same

    I understand the brewing after kids go to bed thing... it is the only time you're truly off
    duty. Both of mine used to be sacked by 7, but the oldest is up until 8 these days.I don't mind

    Good thread.It usually makes no difference at all... taste wise. I drank plenty of
    not-so-clear-beer in my time. Probably most every beer I made my first couple years of

    Did it work though that's my question? I have the 25 ft of 3/8 and I would like to use it at
    frost at last to keep the cost down. Need to keep swmbo happy. I understand the 1/2 is the

    I just picked up some paint strainers from lowes, the brand is blue hawk. I notice now that
