    I will probably stop by the Arcadia Alko store to get some when I get back from my trip to
    Toivakka, Ilosaarirock, Kuopio, Lappland and Oulu in 2 weeks. The Alko nearby did not have any.
    There are a c...

    Staying in or near Helsinki?I will be staying in Helsinki at first, then traveling to Toivakka

    I will be heading to Finland next week for 3.5 weeks to visit family and will be getting some
    Sahti when I am there after reading about it. Not sure where to find juniper in Texas or if it
    native arou...

    I have let my bottles sit around for a while and it seems like the spice flavor has infused in
    the beer over time even more and improved the flavor. At this point I may save the last bottles
    for the h...

    Has anyone carbonated this recipe yet? That sounds like an interesting idea. My homebrew store
    regularly makes wine batches and carbonates them and they come out really good.Aside from that,
    my bottle...

    I made a one gallon batch of leftover hefeweizen with extra wort that didn't fit in my kettle
    and it sat on the yeast for 3 months before I knocked out my keg and racked it over. It tastes
    like banana...

    After reading more about honey after putting this together, I should have added it after
    flameout or during fermentation. So far it is going well and I pitched the yeast at 67 and let
    it rise to abou...

    I will be doing something similar to this over the weekend, but will be adding some orange
    blossom honey to it and am using magnum hops for bittering along with the Martin House brewing
    house strain o...

    I have made 4 batches of apfelwein so far and my most recent added 96 oz of Tart Cherry Juice
    and I let it sit in the carboy for 7 months and kegged it. So far it is my favorite. I added
    cinnamon to m...

    My batch of this is now getting dry hopped. It was very similar to what the op posted. I did
    end up using the clear candi sugar along with the wyeast 1388. I see the issues with getting
    this to clear....
