  • Into making things for myself. Started with apple butter in a big copper kettle & then moved into growing our own sugar cane & making molasses. Next came homemade soap. Home brewed beer was the next logical step. Currently outfitting an upstairs kitchen with 1950's era gas range and refrigerator in order to turn it into my own little 'brewery' complete with a beer cave (large closet with its own A/C vent).

    Only once into keg or bottles. I primary ferment for 10-14 days, then clear with sparkalloid
    for 14 days in primary bucket (I like my pee to be clear, cloudy pee is just unhealthy
    ;)).Thank you!! You ...

    Mine is always slow and steady. Maybe some foaming but usually just small thin bubbles. I whip
    once a day for about 4-5 days, add more lemon juice and nutrient, and whip some more. It is
    usually down ...

    I had two different brews in their primaries for 14 months. Pulled them off after tasting to
    make sure flavor was good & bottled with yeast added to the bottling bucket along with priming
    sugar. Was n...

    I am in the middle of my first batch of SP & had a question about fermentation activity. How
    aggressive should the fermentation rate be? It is working, but at the same rate as an
    apfelwein. Too slow? ...

    They are no-boil beer kits. That's the only thing they offer. Grapestompers is more of a winery
    but they have a lot of equipment for brewing beer.It does come with a 6 gallon bottling bucket
    that is t...

    Grapestompers, in Laurel Springs, NC has a really good kit that has some things most other kits
    don't, like a bottle tree. Just a shade over $200 but it's a great kit. I shopped around for at
    least a ...

    I use a test bottle. When you first put the batch into the carboy, save a little out & put it
    in a bottle. I usually plug the bottle with a paper towel. If it gets infected it doesn't
    matter. The read...
