Posted in thread: Google Forms for tracking brews? on 07-03-2014 at 02:09 AM
I am not a great note taker. To be honest, I really don't care to be. However, I find that
sometimes I lose track of my ciders and wines as they age. I am cheap as well as lazy, so I
won't buy any sof...

Once again, Jack Keller. I have made a Plum wine from his recipe twice and it game out well

Can I brew well on a glass stove top or do I need to buy a propane burner?I was worried when I
started brewing 3 gallon batches in my aluminum pot. It worked just fine and boiled fairly

I brewed up some Skeeter Pee about two years ago. I like my wines/ciders dry so I fermented it

me know i...

I added 1oz bottles one at a time. Then rolled the keg and waited 1 day. Two, 1oz bottles was

been far cheap...

there is a ...

I bought Vintner's Harvest 96oz can and then made a 3 gallon batch which I added to a 1 gallon
batch of from-pear cider I was attempting. In the end, it simply had almost no pear flavor. I

Buy a Carbonator Cap for about $5. Then fill empty 2L pop bottles with your cider. Simple and
cheap. You can also fill a Growler from your picnic tapper with a bottle filler wand and a
stopper of the ...
