I agree that 4 oz of priming sugar for 4 gallons of ale should not cause bottle bombs. Your
beer might end up as fizzy as store-bought yellow fizzy beer, and since that is what most of us

Posted in thread: Apple schnapps into the mix? on 08-04-2015 at 06:52 AM

Windows 10, Windows 10, Windows, well, you get the point. With the exception of some of the HP
Security Ware that Win 10 didn't like (that I won't miss anyway), everything else on my system
