Fizzycist, did you ever find out what plum grows in that park near you and is it a large or small tree? I think you need to be careful what rootstock you use for plums in zone 4. I live in zone 5...

I probably would've gone with plastic seltzer or other soda bottles if you needed them to hold pressure.

I'd be interested in seeing your Saison recipe. I've tried to make a few darker saisons, but wasn't happy with the body profile.

Two years ago I made a black raspberry wheat. Not sure about the details anymore, but I believe I just threw them in a carboy secondary no bag, no pasteurization. Notes simply say "took forever to...

That was kind of off topic, but a really neat blog. I guess what you're saying is racking onto old fruit would make any yeast much less viable? I don't know how much of a concern this would be to...

It would be a waste to use good rope IMO. With twine, you can cut it down at the end of the year and restring more next year. I'm using 12+ year old twine that was made into square bales when my...

Good call on partial extract. I've done BIAB barley wine twice with 19lb grain and it's not fun. Had efficiency and lifting issues. I think I would've gotten close to the same OG using a few lb...

Fermentation issues and fruit flies

I'm looking for some opinions regarding my latest batch of beer.

About a month back, I brewed a porter. OG 1.060, SG 1.020 when I racked to secondary. I used one of those 8 gallon fermenters...

I'm mildly interested in getting one sometime. I agree with David42 though, it needs to go down to wine finish gravities else it wouldn't be worth it.
