Never tried the Dead Ringer so just looked it up and I see it is what they used to call
3-Hearted Ale ... here's the very easy recipe: pretty much stick to these ingredients but
sometimes cut down th...

hmm, my favorite up here in the U.P. of Mich ... I know this is an all grain thread but jfyi
the Northern Brewer "3 Hearted" recipe nails the product such that I've found nobody who can

yes, if you put a whole 5 gal in a 5 gal carboy you'd need a blowoff tube instead of an airlock

pail and us...

and let them ...
Posted in thread: When you force card are you drinking green beer? on 12-01-2010 at 07:00 PM
And what happens if you carb up and the beer doesn't taste as it should? Are you stuck with 5
gallons of premature beer?Even after carbing it will condition with time and taste will improve
