  • Been brewing since 2008. I started home brewing due to my love of craft beer. I thought it would be cool to learn about the different ingredients that go into beer to help broaden my palate, as well as having the ability to brew exactly the beer I would like to drink and to experiment and overall just to learn as much about beer as I can.

    How are you guys adding your flavor combinations? I know they need to be added in a secondary
    environment, such as at bottling. Obviously juice is the most common answer, but there are many
    flavor com...

    What about the little evil man in the corner counting gold coins? He wasn't there before. ;)So
    to sum up: Some people will continue to use NB/Midwest Supplies and some will not. I don't
    think anybody ...

    Where in that article were you able to figure out AB's intent was to destroy homebrewing? Their
    attempt to control supply? They will treat grains/hop and other raw materials much like how
    Walmart trea...

    You guys are right, I'm sure if ABInbev was able to control the entire beer market (both supply
    and sales), we would still have just as many options and the same amount of creativity as we
    currently h...

    By all means, keep supporting the enemyWhy any one would want to support a company whose main
    intent is to destroy everything we love about our community is beyond me. Oh well, guess saving
    a few buck...

    I never found Midwest or Northern Brewers prices to be all that great anyhow, I could almost
    always find better prices on other Homebrewing websites. In particular, their shipping prices
    suck balls. T...

    Well again, you really want a lot of free air contact with the Kombucha, the more the better
    here. Acetobactor + oxygen in the presence of ethanol will make acetic acid, which is what
    you're after her...

    First, putting the lid on probably didn't help. Second, if you used anything other than 304
    Stainless Steel I recommend you not drink anymore of that and pitch the whole batch out.
    Kombucha and metal ...

    Sorry to hijack the thread, but this seems as good a place as any to ask questions. :) When you
    pitch a bottle of GT kombucha, will you get a large scoby? I pretty much followed what

    Honestly? Too much back breaking labor for very little reward. I can't see myself putting in 12
    hours days of hard labor, and making less than I currently do sitting in front of a computer
