    So mine is brewed...and its pretty damned good. Mine isn't a "true" radler, in that it is near
    full-strength with fruit flavour added by the addition of 4 cans of frozen pink lemonaid
    concentrate. A m...

    I'm doing a shandy (Helles + pink grapefruit juice concentrate) for the SWIMBO, and I'm pretty
    sure I'm going to have to stabilize with meta+sorbate. Between the lager yeast, and the 5-7C
    temp of my f...

    Did you stabilize the beer to prevent refermentation? Or do you just rely on keeping it cold?To
    clarify, i mean your first attempt with juice concentrate.

    Is your refractometer calibrated (i.e. reads '0' if water is used)? Alternatively, the yeast
    would be packaged in a low-gravity solution; you may have simply drawn off a top-layer of the
    low-gravity y...

    How about words from an actual professional hop farmer? recommends 3 bines for aggressive
    strains (cascade, centennial), 4 or more for less aggressive strains. Basically, you want as
    many bines as po...

    Pity... then maybe you could give me some name of the oil? I don't mean brand, I mean its
    sort/type/whatever proper name by which it can be searched.Just "mineral oil" gives me a
    million pages all abo...

    I'd be dubious about paraffin oil; its made of lower-weight carbon compounds and may have a
    solvent effect on the yeast (i.e. kill them).

    What are your thoughts on the effectivness/need for taping up slants? Arn't the autoclavable
    caps capable of giving a sufficient seal for dry-out protection?Cap-seals are generally good
    for short-term...

    There isn't really any good reason to buy commercial microbiological media, not for the
    home-brewer. As you've noticed, they are not cheap. You may get slightly better growth of
    desired organisms, and...
