You can also try adding Belgian Candi sugar which is pure sucrose and ferments completely. This
will increase the original gravity without adding body to the beer. LME adds 36 ppg, DME 40

no time flat. That is an awesome original gravity for your first brew, and you will be more

I discovered that having a hop spider is useless if you have a giant hole in your hop bag. I am
using the 1 gallon paint strainer bags that you can get from Lowe's. They worked well but
