    Prefer an Islay single malt to any beer, but brewing's easier (and cheaper).
    Won't drink anything in a can. May make an exception for imported 5L keg.

  • Taught brewing by parents. Switched to extract brewing 12 years ago (more batches, less fuss). When I brought home a Mr. Beer kit, my mother swore she would never brew from scratch again. The Bewitched Red Ale that came with the kit turned out fairly well, with a little tweaking suggested by Mom. Thinking of doing partial mash or BIAB in the near future (thanks to this forum).

    of your beverage of choice, a small potato, and a pie pan (and, of course, a whole chicken).

    Assuming there is no oxygen in the vessel, how would oxidation occur? I've read that statement

    the answer is yes, it will be carbonated and ready to drink by then. will it be at its best?
    prolly not. You didn't add much adjunct to it so it may not take as long to condition but it
    should be carb...
