Another brewers best russian imperial stout kit with 1lb brown sugar added for usual bumped up
abv of 8.7%. You could go mad with this kit and get her up to 13% if you wanted, but I'm too
old for that...

Getting a pretty strong feeling they must use a small quantity of Hello Kitty Teen Charm Body
Spray available at Dollar General. Take a sip and see if you agree.

for kits etc is offering for their Barley Wine Kit: "Add 1% ABV to your brew WITHOUT affecting
the flavor at all." for only an extra $2.00. This concerns a 5 gallon kit. WHAT do you suppose

Normal air is 20% pure O2. It seems that it would infuse just as well as pure, but would just
take longer. Logical?

Next time I'm going to leave half the cooled wort in a second bucket to assure plenty of head

I use a 5 gal. bucket with just 3 inches of head space. Saf Ale SO4 yeast. But this happens no

either is OK...

Right, Fermcap is what I meant. I'm just going to have to design a vent more difficult for the
foam to exit. Wider and taller.

I put 4 drops into the 3 gal boil of high gravity ales but every time I lose about 20% to foam
out of the 2 inch wide two foot long blow off tube. is this to be accepted with a high gravity

I always soup up my kits by tossing into the boil an extra pound of DME, 2 pounds dark brown
sugar and a cup of molassas.

What is the general difference in say, 5 gallon batch for all grain when LME and DME kits are
