    FYI: has a great calculator for your priming sugar additions. I live by it, and
    it's worked great everytime!

    Just mail it to me and I'll brew it... and drink it... but I'll tell you how it turned out!

    When I transferred it to secondary I filled the carboy up to the next with water (per the
    instructions). It started bubbling in secondary better than it did in primary. It's been going
    for about a wee...

    The black balls may be if it were a hydrometer/thermometer... and those were used to calibrate
    the hydrometer. No idea what they are made of though? I'd say if you filter well and let it sit

    Okay, so the honey really has me interested and I wouldn't mind trying it. Anyone have an

    the target o...

    Brewed a batch of NB Phat Tyre Extract Today... all went well until I realized I didn't follow
    directions. I foolishly added the 6lbs Munich Malt at 60 min instead of doing it at 15 min.
    Nothing I can...

    I wanted to use some DME, but wasn't sure how much to use. I'll keep that in mind next time I
