    Check of final gravity was 1.000 this morning. Will let it sit for a couple weeks then transfer
    to secondary. It has a tart finish, I assume from the blackberries. Not too dry and not much
    alcohol.

    Turns out after the bags leaked I only had 5.25 quarts of thick blackberry juice.I combined
    that with 10lbs honey to make a five gallon batch. OG was only 1.080 but I think that is
    probably a good thi...

    Thanks for the reply. I may just make a 3 gallon batch, add honey to boost the juice and top
    off with water if needed.

    My freezer door got left open and 2.5 gallons of Blackberry juice partially thawed. I don't

    picked black...

    I use a pot as a mash tun that is slightly larger than my induction hot plate. It's been
    working just fine for over 5 years now (I boil with propane). When I do a ten gallon batch, I
    have a custom woo...

    Oh, FFS.There multiple types of induction burners. Dropins, ranges, wok, fajita, hotplates and
    stock pot. Even the thing Pizza Hut puts in the bag to keep your pizza hot is an induction
    pellet. I can'...

    Without knowing where you SG is, I wouldn't add any top off. With the boil over you lost X
    amount of wort at X gravity leaving you with X amount of wort at the same gravity. Seems like
    adding to the f...

    Maybe you inferred "only so much weight" was code for less than 100 lbs. I didn't say how much
    was too much, only that there is a limit and that quality matters. Stacking a bunch of weigh in
    a pot one...

    Keep in mind you will get exactly what you pay for. The hotplates can only handle so much
    weight. They aren't designed to be used with a pot larger in diameter than the burner. When
    they fail there re...
