  • Got into home brewing in the Summer of 2008 and it's been a passion ever since.
  • Russian Imperial Stout, another dry stout, then some more Mead. Once it gets colder then I'll be making some more lagers, much easier in the garage in winter. Eventually I'd like to make some wine, most likely a Cabernet Sauvignon or a Merlot, or both.

    +1 on adding DME when cold, then shaking like crazy. Works very well for me.

    My fiance isn't crazy about beer either, but last summer I made Jamil's Belgian Wit and she
    loved it. Will you wife like it, don't know, but it might be worth a try. Just my $.02:mug:

    WLP001 is a great choice for a RIS. If you're wanting to add some fruity flavors, try WLP002,
    its English cousin.I think I may try a RIS with 002. +1

    degree F b...

    I agree with turning off the gas. No CO or CO2 from unburned fuel, but a plume of gas building
    up in your apartment has obvious drawbacks.
