    My son and I have brewed and bottled a lot of beer over the years and a few hard ciders here
    and there. We carbonate using forced CO2 into kegs (20 to 25 lbs over a couple of weeks) and
    never have a p...

    Been brewing beer for several years now and have done 3 ciders in the past. An apple with juice
    from the farmer's market and a Peach and a pear with cans of juice for wine. I'm looking for
    the lower c...

    Do you have a home-brew supply store within driving distance? Most of the ones in the Atlanta
    area carry both extract and all-grain kits as well as custom orders. They are also a wealth of

    Last week my son and I brewed 10 gallons of Wee Heavy and 10 gallons of BarleyWine. We used a
    Wyeast 1728 into about a 1.8 ltr starter for each 5 gallon carboy of the Wee Heavy (target was
    10.8% ABV) ...

    I work out of town and my son made up the yeast starters for some bocks we were going to brew

    starters in the ...

    Using a Marzen with a normal ABV of 5.5% as a base, Beersmith shows (on a 10 gallon batch) for
    20 lbs of sugar to be 54% of the fermentable sugar. ABV at 10 gallons shows 17.4%.Maybe insane
    - all depe...

    OK - I think my plan is to make a Marzen as the base and add 20 lbs of Honey to get it over 51%
    of the sugar. Add the Honey to the carboys and add the beer. Pitch (Wyeast 1084) and start to
    ferment as...
