    Wormwood is not toxic unless in very high doses, i.e. pure wormwood oil (even then, it requires
    roughly 45mg/kg to be lethal, so if you can drink a pint of pure oil you might just die). It is
    an ingre...

    I did 6.6# lme, 1oz hallertauer (3/4oz at 60, 1/4oz at 15), and used WLP300 German Hefeweizen.
    Fermented a little too warm starting around 70F and ended up finishing around 78F. Banana was

    I checked it today, dropped a whole point to 1.019. I ran the numbers on it and it's better
    than 5% abv, slightly high gravity for the style. Racked it and then popped open a couple of
    stouts and reme...

    I swirled the wort and got the yeast back up, waiting to see what happens. If it finishes,
    great, if not, I'm considering adding Danstar Nottingham next to see if that finishes it off.

    I think it's stopped because all activity has stopped, krausen has fallen completely, and the
    yeast are dropping down to the bottom of the primary, gravity of 1.020 has held for 2 days now.

  • Posted in thread: Do you sparge steeping grains in an extract brew? on 04-18-2007 at 01:06 AM
    I use about 1/2 gallon - full gallon of hot tap water to sparge. Do it until the water runs
    fairly clear.

  • Posted in thread: Chiller Question on 04-17-2007 at 07:24 AM
    Okay, I'm trying to figure out how not to overchill my beer, or find out if this is even a
    problem. I put together an immersion chiller with 25' 3/8" copper tubing, some polyester tubing
    to hook up to...

    In Michigan also, there is an attempt being lead by Larry Bell (of Bell's Brewery) along with
    the Michigan Brewers Assoc. to increase the deposit on kegs to $30. The reasoning is because

    I'd be a sad, lost soul if it weren't for good beer.
