    I am actually considering this or the spike solo since the SWMBO doesn't trust me with a Propane setup. Could you do extract kit in this or would the weight of water and extract burn the element out? Obviously this would be just one or two batches to get my hands wet with brewing before...

    Lawrence, KS water chemistry

    Can someone help understand my water report in lawrence, KS. I know it has chloramine, which I can remove with Camden tablets. But it is the mineral content I'm not sure if it's good to use for brewing Ales, IPAs etc.

    Top-up question with a twist

    yeah I top up the ferementer to 5 G's I guess I'm trying to play around with adding less of not 'worty' liquid to the fermenter. Maybe to improve flavor!

    Beer tastes good BEFORE bottling, bad after..???

    I had a problem with my beer tasting good before carbonation and tasting like tire rubber after, so my next batch of beer will be made with nothing but RO/spring bottled water, because I guess I have chloramine in out local water table, if it's still there I will be back on HBT asking questions :)

    Boulevard Double-Wide IPA

    Have to agree with some of the above comments about their average year round beers, even the seasonal six packs aren't that great I drink ZON (missed out this year, too broke) and Sometimes Bob's 47 (octoberfest) The RIS they have is astounding as is the Saison.
