It's a hobby. If we all did it the same way, the forum wouldn't exist and HD wouldn't sell as
many paint strainer bags.You can make a great omelette with eggbeaters and a $10 skillet. You
can make a g...

I seriously doubt you will have any problem with the plastic drive gears. They are very durable
and although not designed to do so, they can dead lift a 150 lb garage door without stripping
out. This ...

Just one gallon at a time for me in a pickle jar. I don't think I could drink more in the week
it takes to brew up a batch.You could get something like this, which as been around since

I know this may sound weird, but is it perfectly fine to use a secondary fermenter on a wheat

No reason not to jump to AG if you have the equipment. I don't actually believe people need to
start with extract, any more than someone needs to start with a bread machine and mix to bake a

Couple of things jump out. Bleach is a good sanitizer, but also easy to pick up off flavors
from chlorine. Rinsing a sanitized object is a no no. Even with hot water, it's generally not
