    Now that I think about it Tlylebrew, I never did ask what your wheat recipe was, in particular,

    the sweet...

    When I made my blueberry blonde I bottled it and didn't actually get around to drinking it for
    a few months. The blueberry flavor was a lot stronger at bottling time than when I actually
    drank it from...

    That should be plenty of time. I think I'm usually in the 165 degrees for around the 10-15

    secondary and let it...

    +1 subscribed. Anyone find it odd that Chester hasn't posted in a few days. I'm guessing it's

    I bought my first homebrewing kit through the Sam Adams homebrew contest. It came with a 'How
    To Homebrew" DVD made by Sam Adams founder, Jim Koch. He took 2 frozen gallon jugs of water,

    I got an e-mail from kegkits today (mailing list) and it looks like Tom is getting out of the
