  • Posted in thread: FAQ: Aluminum Pots for Boil Kettles? on 04-06-2008 at 05:33 PM
    I have heard that aluminum can retain flavors from cooking, then pass them on to your beer. So
    if i boil a pot of onions or cabbage I'll end up with oniony beer. Is this true? Should an
    aluminum brew ...

    well, I ended up racking it to another bucket onto the sugar. I don't think there was much
    splashing, I was as careful as I could be. :)It turned out to be pretty decent! Not much
    character to it, and...

    So I racked from my primary to the bottling bucket today. No trouble moving the beer, I don't

    before bot...

    I've pretty much settled on 3-3 for my first brew as well. I'm going to rack it to my bottling

    yeast will need to clean up after themselves in the primary. After that...go ahead and
    secondary for 2 weeks...

    Well, I started by brew on Wednesday and it seems to be going strong. I rehydrated the yeast as
    described in the "how to brew" book. I figured I'd ferment in my carboy and then transfer to
    the larger ...

    I'm going to try my first brew sometime this week. It's going to be very simple, partly because
    I don't have easy access to a brew store and I don't have enough patience to order more
    stuff.I've got a...
