    Without the malt flavors and sweetness, all you'll taste is the hops. Probably won't even
    notice the alcohol that much.Its not the worst idea for an experiment, but I don't think the
    end product will ...

    I have been putting ice in my batches lately with great sucess. I use these to make the ice,
    and it chills the wort in about 10-15 mins. I clean and sanitize the rubbermaid containers,
    then use the sa...

    Ok, so if I fermented my ale at too high a temperature and i end up with the taste of fusel
    alcohol, is there anything I can do to reduce these flavors in the bottles I am currently

    Has anyone made a hop less beer, Im thinking of trying one to see what it is like. What are

    Ok, this bashing of proper screw on growlers has got to stop. I use them regularly (1-2 for
    each brew, more if I have them empty).You simply have to use the right screw-on-top. Polyseal
    caps will so...

    I think that member was me...:D There's another member with a similar question. His complaint
    was that the beer was flat.I told him the cap leaked since it did not carbonate.So, basicaly
    it's the same...

    I ordered some growlers with screw caps to bottle part of my latest batch of brew. Another
    member suggested that growlers are not a good idea for bottling and could explode due to being
    thin walled. D...

    I don't believe it'll work. The glass is probably too thin and won't withstand the pressure of
    carbonation.Anyone else have anything to add to this? I'm showing my inexperience here. What
    are the grow...

    I do not believe you'll want to use these 64oz'ers for long term storage. Between the two
    choices for lids, I say the plastic. They seal better. After screwing the lids on, it would be
    good practice t...
