Posted in thread: Electric Stovetop Brewing? on 04-17-2014 at 02:56 PM
You can totally boil on an electric stove. I, too, have a crap apartment and do full-boil, all

gallons of w...

Welcome. I know it's hard, but make sure to give that beer time to finish up (if you've been
reading, you already know this). It's really hard to do with that first beer, but it pays

offer some sugges...
