I found it at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Ace-K-Acesulfame-k-Potassium-Crystalline-Sweetener/dp/B005IDNIXA/), but I'm not incredibly convinced it's the best sweetener and it's only available by the...

Newer diet sodas often tend to use blends of multiple sweeteners rather than single ones: the two will often cover up each other's weak points, and taste more natural than each individual one.

Chiller and brewpot, Rochester NY pickup

I've got a starter chiller and a 6 gallon stainless brewpot I'm looking to get rid of after upgrades. The pot is pretty thin but quite serviceable with a lid, the chiller is 50' x 1/4" copper with...

I got this started last weekend, and fermenting good and strong now. I did end up using the peach nectar, and the flavor in the must is maybe a bit too pronounced, but not bad. It wasn't quite like...

Refined sugars aren't going to cause hangovers. Poor fermentation temperatures will cause fusel alcohols and other products that give worse hangovers, as can lack of overall nutrients in the...

Powdered sugar is generally a bad idea, not because of flavor but because it includes corn or wheat starch used to prevent caking. Since that won't ferment, what doesn't settle out will cloud the end...

Hawaiian Punch wine

I've been toying around with the idea of a Hawaiian Punch wine. No, not buying the red stuff and dropping yeast in, I mean going to the source ingredients.

Apparently the base formula is apple,...

That fear that it will "further normalize adult drinking in the eyes of kids" is what gets me there.

I had plans to brew this weekend, but they were dashed when I jumped the gun and had the yeast pitched by 5pm Friday. Wait, that's a good thing. Blonde ale I'll add some blueberry to.

Thanks for the hints. I'll look into that. Some other research suggested plain aluminum foil wraps or welding blankets or similar too, which I might look at first since really I just need a bit extra.

Kettle insulation on gas stove

I just got a new 8 gallon pot to replace one of my 6 gallons so I can easily boil 6 or 6.5 gallons. Problem is, between the greater size and the new one being short and wide rather than narrow and...

Hope I like iodine in my beer.

Okay, so I'm making a honey blonde ale. All is good, I hit over target gravity but that's okay, I pour 2.5 gallons of iodophor solution into the fermenter to sanitize it, and while it's chilling I...

Corn sugar will boost your ABV, but it won't contribute any flavor and will only lighten the body compared to leaving it alone. 1.042 can make a good mild beer either way so it's not necessarily bad....

I ordered one of those a couple months ago too. Works fine for me, though I only do 5 gallon batches. At the price I expected 1/4", since 3/8" would cost that just buying the copper myself.

Watch your temperature though. Maybe it's just me but whenever I pitch onto cake my beer ferments hot even with the swamp cooler and A/C. Vigorous fermentation produces a lot of heat, I guess.
