The proper pressure is directly related to the temp of beer. The colder the beer, the lower the

Assuming my shipment from BMW shows up, I'll be doing a Speckled Heifer Creme and a buddy is
popping his cherry on Yooper's Oatmeal Stout. I thought that would be a easy first brew for
him. . . plus, ...

Hey Ed!I also love the BrewBuilder tool. Though, I have one suggestion. I apologize if it has
