  • Posted in thread: New fermenter... but what kind? on 01-28-2015 at 04:39 PM
    I give my vote to plastic ale pail buckets for all standard beers. They're fairly cheap and can
    last a long time - they last until you scratch them so it's up to you how long they'll last.

    I give up.

    should taste an...

    just lazy and ...

    How bad is this?This bad: [-------------] :DI know I shouldn't be pitching oxygenated beer into
