Thanks. Oh man, I hope I don't think of it as hell... but we'll see how I feel in a couple months. So you'd recommend a fridge? If it's just a matter of space and a fridge is a better choice all...

Fermentation Cooler - Recommendations

I'm a new brewer who just relocated from a nice, cool environment in CA, where I didn't need a cooler all year, to Phoenix, AZ. So yes, it's going to get VERY hot pretty soon here. I'll be brewing...

Yeah, that's kind of what I was thinking/hoping. I mean, there are tons of products out there where people are using other products as raw ingredients and I think it's totally fine. I also brew...

Commercial Kombucha - Is Tea Trademarked?

I'm sure I'm getting way too technical or paranoid here, but I can't seem to find one single mention of this anywhere online, and I've looked pretty hard.

I really don't know if I'll ever brew...

Ah, topping it off, yes - that's the other thing I had to do that I didn't expect. I did a full 6 gallon boil, but I guess since it was a 90 minute boil, I really lost a lot, because I had to add...

Mix what, the wort in the kettle, the bucket, or the sample cylinder? I did taste it, it tasted fine, but I was of course getting lots of hop particles in my mouth, which wasn't super pleasant...

Too much trub to take O.G. reading??

So I'm still a newbie, and just brewed up my third batch yesterday. For now I'm trying to do something different each time (that is, that involves at least a couple new processes).

My first was a...

Okay well that sounds good. I should allow it to warm before transferring to the priming bucket, throwing in the sugar and bottling though, correct?

Clarity would definitely be nice. Each time...

Bottling Timing / Temp Issue
