    I do it all the time. Good call on making sure the water is sterile; I hadn't thought of that.

    Drinking the latest batch of this and man is it good.Any tweaks to the recipe?

    Awesome! Thanks, Forrest!

    accurately measuring volume, temperatures, and gravities.Yeah, but the gravity of my first
    runnings was 1.059 (and...
