Another old thread, but oh well. It's fun to revive the dead threads. I plan to make a Berliner
Weisse soon by souring the wort first for 24 hours and then boiling it for about 30 minutes
with some ho...

I'm ordering a Wyeast Scottish ale yeast 1728 smack pack from Austin Homebrew. I'm in southern
California. Both places are hot as hell (100s), and the trip for the yeast to get here will

Hahaha, yes, the hydrometer sucks because I dropped it and it broke. How many of you have NEVER
