  • Posted in thread: Gravity press idea brainstorming on 10-24-2015 at 07:56 PM
    I just had a moment of brilliance while grinding 7 bushels of apples. Since the pomace is
    basically sitting in a pool of cider, I wonder if a gravity press or filter would work.
    Basically a large vess...

    I don't know about anyone else but New England has had a spectacular crop of apples this year.
    A random tree down the road from me normally produces bland large crabs, produced some

    I am brewing a batch of pumpkin rye and it came out at 1.030 at 3 gallons of water to one jar

  • Posted in thread: how long does beer last in a carboy on 09-12-2015 at 08:58 PM

    supply of...

    Thanks guys. At least I have a few blossoms this year. So back to the usual thought... "Next
    year will be even better!"

  • Posted in thread: A question for people with apple trees on 05-05-2015 at 09:24 PM
    This year I am really hoping for some apple blossoms but so far have only seen a few random
    flowers but not from my oldest healthiest trees. My Calville Blanc and a graft of Golden Noble
    are starting ...

    There is a bag of white hominy corn too. Can this be used for anything?

    know this is old because my wife has been gluten free for a couple years now. So what can I
    do with this??? There is zero roast to it, probably not malted either. Its a 1lb bag so I take
