    How do you deal with the added bacteria in your brewing set up. I mean, do you designate
    specific carboys for plambics? How do you sanitize or clean out your equipment. From what I am
    told the added b...

    So the consencus is to mix the lemonaid (or soda) when consuming because of the added sugar in
    the lemonaid for fear of bottle bombs and messing with the yeast/carbination. I would think
    that adding l...

    We have a Cask Conditioned ale at my bar. We use a hand-pump beer engine, so it is neither

    I do the dame thing for all of my beer thus far. I use a bottling bucket, add my sugar water,
    then the wort, then bottle. So even carbonation should be reached. Can't think of anything I
    would have do...

    So I made a Wee Heavy Scotch ale last at the end of last summer. It landed about 8.5%. I

    sample of on...
