Moved mine into the garage in my ferment chamber. That stuff makes a smell! Is that due to the

Posted in thread: Newbie looking to break more into wine-making - requesting kits to avoid, and tips! on 10-03-2016 at 04:57 PM
Hey everyone!So, I have been making beer, meads and ciders for a few years now - close to 10.
However, I had some personal revelations recently, and want to learn a lot more about

Most likely any concentrate will be bug free. The juice going into it was most likely
pasteurized, and the sugar/acid level in the concentrate is probably too high for any
bacteria/spores to survive.O...

Has anyone tried this with apple cider? I have a local orchard I can get fresh pressed

Posted in thread: How well do hops survive shipping? on 09-04-2013 at 02:29 AM
