    justineaton,5 cups of sugar is about 4# I suppose for your 5g keg batch. Was that too sweet or
    just right? First recipe scaled to 5g would be a lot more than that...I was going to try 3# but
    may need ...

    I am making a 5 gallon batch of ginger ale for my keg. I have not found many recipes written
    for that purpose on the interweb, so I thought I would share my idea for feedback if any others
    have tried ...

    My understanding is that unless you do some serious filtering/crashing, there will always be

    certain ABV, ...

    Good post. Good summer brew. I would have guessed wheat was in there but not according to
    Terrapin. I find the victory interesting. I have biscuit which I think is equivalent. My 5%
    pale is similar bu...

    My 7 hop IIPA went from 1.092 to 1.016 with wy1217. I added CBC-1 with priming sugar at
    bottling for a little conditioning insurance in my new refurbished swing top bottles that are
    hopefully carbing ...

    I used 2 packs of Wyeast 1217 on a 7 hop IIPA on 11/16 and it went from 1.092 to 1.016.
    Fermented in cool basement 60-65F. Very pleased with taste while bottling last weekend. I added
    CBC-1 with primi...
