    I am going to have to try that. It never occurred to me to put it sealed into a pressure
    cooker. Can you do more than one quart at a time if you've got a canning pressure cooker? This

    Up to now, I've been brewing mead so I have supplies from that to start with. I am reading the
    FAQ thread and the How to Brew site to learn technique and find what else I need to have

    the top an...

    You could check with local bakeries, restaurants or Subway for buckets. I purchased 3-5 gal
