Just put up 3 gallons.

2,227 gallons!

Someone should just go ahead and fill their swimming pool with apple juice, chuck in a few bricks of dry yeast, and see what happens.

I had some in the UK and recently bought some in a crappy supermarket in New York. Frankly, it was way, way better in the UK. Maybe it wasn't treated well, I don't know. I did very much like the...

John Harvard's in Boston

I'm not sure how I feel about this place--I was REALLY excited to go there, since I've heard a ton of great stuff about it. The place looked great, but of the 5 beers (kolsch, APA, IPA, nut brown...

Glad to hear you're getting back into it--your cat looks less than approving, though. Mine likes to swat at the airlocks when they're bubbling, rub his tail all over sanitized bottles, and has to...

I heard from SWMBO (who is an archaeologist) that a bunch of archaeologists found a kind of pit that they couldn't figure out--until they made beer in it. It was a really old brewery and the beer...

You also have to remember that virtually everything in the brewery came from the local area, where (generally) similar types of wild yeast lived. Especially in an established brewery, you'd pretty...

SA Mayflower Golden?

Just had a glass of this when I was visiting Plymouth Plantation. Anyone know anything about it (aside from that it's made for the 50th anniversary of the Mayflower II)? Can't find anything on it...

You also can go to almost any LHBS and just buy a grommeted lid, I've seen them for like...$2 or less. But you definitely want a grommeted lid so you can put an airlock on there.

My Apfelwein was in primary for almost three months. It clarified probably around the two month mark, I think. It turned out brilliantly clear and tasted awesome. :D

I'd say 6.8% should be fine. If you're worried about drinking it all, make two batches and keep your hands off the second! :D
