  • I've been brewing for about eight months now, so I'm still a rookie. After looking at HBT often for advice and really enjoying the forums I decided to become a member. Now that I have a better job than when I first started brewing, I have more time and energy focused toward beer. I am a teacher so I take a lot of interests into beer, all the way from the history to the scientific notes of yeast. I'd like to specialize in replicating old styles of beers (i.e, Egyptians, using cereals, saffron and honey..) and also special flavors that I can call my own. I'm currently working on attaining some 3 gallon buckets so I can increase my experimentations!

    I previously made a saison that was really tasty and my non beer friends would throw them
    back.. To me it was lacking a little body and that "wow" factor. I'm stilling looking for a
    nice easy drinker ...

    Does the box crush/bow at all when the starter is on there? Go CanesActually it doesn't. A wide
    surface area helps distribute the weight perfectly. However a half gallon jug(about half the
