    I'll be in Minneapolis next week for work. I should have time one or two evenings to visit
    breweries, brew pubs, and/or beer bars. I'd like to visit Surly, but I'm open to other
    suggestions as well. P...

    Check this out. This is the process I've used and I love the results, do a

    My 2 cents, if your calculations are correct, that's a ton of fruit for such a small batch.
    More like a wine/beer hybrid than a fruit beer. For comparison, I used 7.0# of homegrown tart
    cherries in 5 ...

    Some things that apply in commercial brewing don't necessarily apply to homebrewing, usually
    due to scale. Mash rakes are primarily there for mixing the mash ensuring the grain and water
    are mixed wel...

    Yeah, you either use acid, or a strong base. If it's bad, go to a home store and get 100% lye
    drain cleaner, some gloves and goggles. Or as someone suggested, BLC or LLC from a LHBS. Those
    are a littl...

    To be honest, it doesn't sound very good to me but you never know. Just a thought, but maybe
    try blending some cola or cola extract with a commercial FR and make sure you like it before
    going through ...

    I use one on my setup with a plate chiller. It definitely helps to contain hop debris, helping
    to keep my plate chiller from clogging and less hop debris into the fermenter. I also use an
