  • Got into home brewing about 20 years ago when I found a store called "Wine and Brew by You" in Miami and the owner gave me enough free samples to get me in a good mood. The rest is history.
  • I want to brew mead, both still and sparkling versions in the ancient style. The African honey wines I have tried seem almost fake.
  • Nothing at the moment, about to start my summer ale.
  • American Lager. Need something light for the summer...almost gone!

    I'm thinking I got a bad bottle of this last time (only time) I tried this because it was so
    universally disliked by all who tried it including me. I will have to give this another chance
    and hope I d...

    Allow me to retort you retort. Lol. Retort. I love that word. I'm sure you had plenty of
    success with your system (and I'm a little mad I never tried that before I moved to kegging)
    BUT....You're not ...

    This issue has been discussed to death. What you are talking about IS theft and it IS illegal.
    The deposit does not grant you ownership of the keg. It is merely a form of collateral, albeit
    a poor one...

    I was just thinking the same thing. How is it that I pay 35 bucks deposit on a keg of Mich
    Ultra (back was a test keg to set up my glycol crying if I spill Ultra all
    over the floo...

    Usually I wait a month after bottling. I brew in Miami Beach so I will venture that the heat
    has nothing to do with it. I also use a cup to 5 gallons (don't know how much weight that is
    exactly maybe ...

    Fantastic travel setup! Absolutely love it! Probably also great for still mead if one keeps the

    at pretty high pressure. The crappier the beer the colder it needs to be. 35F for light beers
    and 18-20 p...
