    Welcome. I think there was a ball game yesterday, but let's not discuss it.

    Welcome. And I think you have a good idea with the LME.

    Yes - hydrometer. And since you have a refractometer for checking OG, I recommend buying a
    bottling hydrometer now. The scale on mine is 1.000 - 1.040, and you can read it to the nearest
    .00025 units ...

    If you read thru a lot of the Brulosophy exbeeriments, you'll find many accepted principles
    that don't prove out. Reading thru the discussion, you'll also see that the exbeerimenters are

    Here are a couple of links that discuss mixing of
    gases:[ame][/ame] these, and some other sources,

    that you don't go longer than 30 minutes after the start of rehydration before pitching the
    yeast into wo...

    Ok cool. Any specific advice on hop usageI usually keep it simple. I like Simcoe for bittering
    and finishing in the APA - around 0.62 BU:GU ratio. Willamette for bittering and finishing for
