In cleaning out my late father's house, we came across a GW Kent Personal Brewery, still in the box, with a can of Mahogany Coast Canadian Ale extract. I wonder if I could make a batch for homebrew...

Off taste

What are you using for a cleaner? Chlorine bleach, if not rinsed thoroughly, can react and cause a rubbery after-taste.

Salvage Operation

Ran across it in Joy of Homebrewing. I had not used any finings during the boil, like Irish moss, so I went with bentonite as a clarifier in the secondary.

Salvage Operation

For my first secondary fermenter try, I had this great idea to put my Cerveza Clone into a secondary with a dash of gypsum to give it a super-clear appearance. However, I think I pulled it off the...
