    Easiest way to mix the sugar into the beer is after boiling it and letting it cool down, add it

    It's just dissolved co2 off-gassing. As the temp of the beer cools down when FG is
    reached,dissolved co2 starts coming out of solution. You wait for that to stop,& the beer could
    go bad eventually. Or...

    I had ordered from Midwest and a few days later had my card hacked as well. I hope Midwest can
