    What do you think of this statement found on every can: "We know of no brand produced by any
    other brewer which costs so much to brew and age. Our exclusive Beechwood Aging produces a
    taste, a smoothn...

    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
    their spec...

    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
    space. After the wild foaming is over it will all go into one bucket.

    I use a 5 gal. bucket with just 3 inches of head space. Saf Ale SO4 yeast. But this happens no
    matter which yeast I use. Is it best to add fermcap in the boil or at pitch time? I was told
    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
    batch? Fer...
