I too thought that milk was a crazy idea, but I tried it and it worked fine. I used 2% milk. I poured some milk in a bowl, dipped my finger in, wiped the milk all over the back of the label, then...

Congrats on your first batch! Your bucket appears to be at least a 6.5 gallon bucket, leaving enough space for the foaming during fermentation, so unless you have a leak in the spigot, I would think...

I realize now that McCormick Valencia Orange Peel is dried orange peel, so I wouldn't want to put it in the brew just before bottling. McCormick also makes Orange Extract that is mostly alcohol and...

Adding orange peel and coriander during secondary fermentation?

My friend and I just brewed a batch of Brewer's Best Weizenbier. It's been in primary fermentation for 14 hours, and it's chugging away. Got to thinking about Blue Moon, and thought it would be...

What do YOU do when the beer tastes blah?

My first ever batch (Mr. Beer Porter) came out looking OK, decent carbonation, but tastes kinda blah. It's drinkable, but lacks flavor. I know, it's Mr. Beer, but if it wasn't for Mr. Beer, I...

What label printer stock do you use?

I designed my bottle label, but don't know what sticky label stock to buy. Anyone have an idea? It looks like I should be printing 12 labels per sheet.

Lager/ale yeast batch is bubbling away

Well, it's day 6, and the airlock has been bubbling every 3-6 seconds for all 6 days. So far, so good, I guess. In another week, I'll raise the ambient temp to 65 for a few days for a diacetyl...

Any reason people don't install more than one airlock (in a plastic fermenter lid), to prevent yeast clogging a single airlock? To make a blowoff setup, do I just insert one end of a hose in the...
