    I would not be worried about it. That lid is going to be a safety measure should a bottle
    explode. You can replace a lid. Eyes, not so much.

    My bad, I was not talking about stiring up my primary fermentation setiment. I had already
    racked over to secondary. There was very little activity and next to no sediment when I
    bottled. I am thinkin...

    I had that happen to a batch of mine 2 weeks ago. I just assumed the I did not stir it well
    enough and all my carving yeast went into the first couple bottles. No gushers, some were
    perfect and othes ...

    Subrosa,Yes, that's basically what I did except I let mine sit for a while to ferment also.

    Only head space I have needed in my ciders has been the bottling wand displacement.I would not
    mind trying out the dishwasher bit. But if a bottle shattered I would have to face swmbo. Plus
    I have onl...

    I did this with 1 grolsh bottle and did not have an issue. But it was also the first bottle I

    Thanks Scott. Looks like the range we are all looking for is above 145 for 30 min. Since the
    bottles were still screaming hot after 10 min out of the water, I'm willing to bet they were
    above that for...

    So, I used this method today. Easy, clean, and fast. 1 question though. What range of
    acceptable temp drop should I expect? I was doing 6 bottles in a standard canning pot. I let
    the bottles warm in a...

    I'm not brewing with the bread yeast. I boiled them with the raisins to kill them. Since most
    nutrients contain yeast hulls, I thought I would provide some also. The yeast I am brewing with
    is Lavin 2...

    Been reading and have a question. I know nutrient is cheap, but I'm trying to go a'natural.

    table spoons...
