Start with water.With extract you can use 100% RO water. That is the easy (and more expensive)

I'm still trying to figure out where my beers are going wrong... I've been all over the place,
and it seems to follow me. I started off as an extract + steeping grains brewer, went to all

I'd like to have one ready by Thanksgiving time... I heard these are very sweet beers and need

I got the chiller with hose fittings and then got some adapters that fit into the 3/4 insh hose

whereas the Igloo...

Brewed a pale ale on Saturday and I had some issues. It was my first partial boil in a very
