    We'll, I'm 100% certain I put campden in all my brewing water. But I know I forgot in one of
    the starters. This doesn't explain both batches going south in the exact same hideous manner.My

    Currently running an inaugural 10g batch on the electric setup. Succeeded with a 7g yesterday

    Brewed a Pliny the Elder clone. 12.5 gallons in the fermenter. 17 gallon boil in a 20 gallon

    money. Pitched a ...
