I think they are high enough they'll be ok. If the stars aligned and a hurricane came up the
Chesapeake Bay with a storm surge during a full moon. Then they might flood out. But that is
like a 50 to 1...

Planning on planting my year old bines this weekend near a river off the Chesapeake bay. Do you
think the roots could grow too deep and tap into brackish water. They'll be planted about 6
feet above w...

Cool, sounds good. Mine has finally slowed down after a couple days at around 74 degrees. I

Well I don't think I can get it up to 90 but I can attempt to get it up to 80. I think after

I haven't checked the gravity yet, that's my next step. It's going a stead 8 bubbles a minute.

I made a Belgian wit on Jan 19th and its still fermenting. I used Wyeast brand Belgian Witbier
yeast 3944. My OG was 1.057. Temp has ranged from 65 to 70 degrees over the last two weeks. I'm

like the one for sale here. Mine doesn't have the two large flaps on the main box. Mine is
also older, serial number 1090 as opposed to the 1437 here. How much older, I don't know.
