It's ok. Contrary to popular opinion, possession and consumption of alcohol by those under the
age of 21 is not illegal in all jurisdictions. Possession vs purchase, parental consent and

I've heard of people using a hop tea, but I've just added a few drops of isomerized alpha acid
to make up for a lack of bitterness. You can order it off quite a few different websites. A
little goes a...

With that gravity and amount of hops you should be ok with just a couple weeks of fermenting

10 gals of sanitizer?!? I think that's your problem right there. It doesn't take much. I make

When I'm done with brewing, I clean, then rinse everything in sanitizer. That way I'm confident
no nastiness is growing in my stuff while it sits in the closet. When I'm ready to brew, I take
it out a...

You'll be fine. Your process sounds like mine. I pour in top off water then stir the hell out
of it. Sometimes it can take up to 24 hours or more before you see signs of fermentation. Don't
worry, be ...

I went there recently, but wasn't able to reserve a crate. However, I did buy a couple sixers
from the restaurant. They were selling 2 per person and conveniently the wife was with me so I
was able to...
