As a general rule of thumb, I make sure I have one beer for every inch of snow that is forecast. This storm conveniently made me purchase an even case.

We are all so uniquely different, so there is no way to answer how much is too much. I'm 47, and I've probably drank somewhere between 30,000 and 40,000 bottles of beer. I'm in good shape, I...

I made a half-batch my first time too. I used a German Hefeweizen kit from Morebeer, and the dried malt extract was packaged in two equal bags. I didn't have to mess with splitting it.

bottled first batch, but one problem

I fermented my first batch of beer in a better bottle equipped with a spigot. My intent was to skip the bottling bucket, and bottle from the spigot on the carboy. When I went to attach the bottle...
