  • Posted in thread: Can someone help me identify this vine/berry? on 05-23-2016 at 12:43 PM
    I know it is not a gooseberry, as they really do not grow in San Antonio. My guess would be a
    wild cucumber which also goes under the name of melothria scabra. They have a tendency to come
    up all over...

    That sounds like something that would be fabulous in the summer time. Would also love to see
    your recipe, as I have a couple of lbs of lavender that I would like to use in a recipe.

    I made a Blood Orange Witbier last year with my blood oranges and also a Blood Orange Spiced
    Mead with them. Both came out great. It took about a month for the witbier to settle down and
    meld as I use...

    My typically routine for cleaning, especially after IPA or sometimes Pale Ales is baking soda
    with warm water in my primary fermentor, let soak overnite, discard water then refill with PBW

    GlenQuagmire, did you get your freezer yet? Just measured the inside on my Frigidaire and it
    measures 26", so you should be okay. I have ball locks with the CMB connectors and it fit just
    fine without...

    I think we have all been there at one time or another. I just fixed it by getting a larger
    container for 5 gallon brews a 15.5 keggle.

    Yes, it was a little bit of convenience, but more so to be able to brew when I want to, for me
