    actually had dandy lion wine, they priced it at 50 dollars a bottle because of the labor

  • Posted in thread: Does the bottle make a difference? on 02-23-2013 at 02:41 PM
    There may be a glass quality issue but I've never encountered it. Some bottles just look
    better, I've saved certain bottles just for a particular brew cause I liked the bottle. If they
    are 12 oz and t...

    The kit you bought probably had you add some clarifiers when you racked it, prb two small packs
    of clear liquid, you dump in one and wait 10 minutes then the other. Most those are 4 to 6 week
    kits. If...

    Many people here started out with Mr beer and still have them, I generally keep mine for

  • Posted in thread: Possible contamination by chilling bath. Keep it or dump it? on 02-11-2013 at 02:11 AM
    I would never dump anything until I know for sure its undrinkable.. although I've been known to

    people who ...

    sampler from Wegmans and they wouldn't sell it to me because my underage daughter was in line
    with me. I was sp...

    Yes but in penna, I have noticed some brewery will only fill their own marked growlers and some
    don't care. Even if your state allows it, prob wanna call the berwery anyway.

    You should be fine .. unless you installed a UV light in your fridge.. but then how would we

    Aluminum kettles turn black because of a different chemical process. Its just plain oxidation.
    Star San is an acid that deteriorates the metal itself. It actually creates hydrogen gas by
    trading off m...

    Oh and I wouldn't use the paddle, if I remember right the aluminum turns to aluminum chloride,
    the acid begins to create hydrogen gas. The paddle was probably bare and had no oxidation on
    the surface ...
