Even if the recipe was formulated for a 5 gallon batch, don't feel the need to automatically top it off. Get into the habit of checking the gravity with a hydrometer, and then add water or malt...

Regular printer paper labels applied with milk works wonders. No hassle of trying to soak labels off, because if you run it under hot water while you wash out the bottle the label falls right off.

It finally hit 65 here today, so I pulled out the brew pot and had a porch brew day. I made TwoHeadsBrewing's Summer Citrus Wheat. All in all it was a fairly easy brew day, until I realized I...
