    Ok... I sorta brewed this recipe, as I had to change some of the grain bill because the LBHS
    did not carry the exact grains... I also subbed the hops for a straight up East Kent Goldings

    All I have done are wheats (so far), and even going all grain has not got rid of the

    I agree with the Milwaukee's Best before mentioned... As a teen, some friends and I bought a

    Personally I hand wash my bottles (no dishwasher, hard water) with PBW before storing them... I

    I do not dry hop in a keg, but I do dry hop in primary (after hitting FG)... What I do is I use

    washer (...

    I have seen that the sight glasses need a heat shield of some sort to keep this from

    Not sure about the autoclave... But I have found that boiling in a flask is hard to do without
    it boiling over... I do the boil in a regular sauce pan then transfer to a sanitized flask for

    Personally I would not spend the extra $$$... JMHO Here is one that offers a lifetime warranty
    for $42.00... I made my own tho and total cost was $2.66 for the cigar box... ;)
