    So I'm stuck here, I have a cider that just won't start fermenting and was hoping the experts

    Have another thread going about trying to figure out some beer issues and one of the things
    that has come up is my water profile. I figured before I went to the city I'd see if anyone in
    the Castle Ro...

    Thanks for the ideas guys, I guess I'll just have to play around. I've been wanting to brew a
