    If you like that style then it is a perfect first brew. It shouldn't allow any oxygen into the
    wort because there is already a blanket of CO2 covering it. Hops really aren't able to
    contaminate anythi...

    So to clarify. once I add the 5 lbs dme and bring back to boil, I add bakers chocolate at 15
    mins, the rest of the dme at 20, and then the hops at 60. How long then do I boil after I add
    the hops? I h...

    Why not start making your own kits to what you like? I could never find exactly what I liked
    either so I started creating my own recipes from little parts of other brews. I'll take a guess
    at one and ...

    my higher gravity brews always take longer to carb. so i'd at least give it another month.
    Personally I'd let it sit for another 4-6 months before cracking anymore open, but that's just
    me.I was think...

    Thanks, I really appreciate all the help. I figure I'll be jumping into this part of the hobby
    in about a week when I need to head up to the homebrew store for more beer supplies.

    I'm interested in making soda but I also don't need four gallons of it at a time. Would I be
    able to scale it down to a gallon? Does the extract stay good after opening? I'm also a big fan
    of variety ...

    So I got stuck watching this too (she watches my movies, I should at least try to watch hers)
    but instead of just sitting quietly I made fun of it for a while and then started on the
    whiskey. All in a...

    better. My...
