    I bought a red bull extract. I was given a recipe with it to try a Red Bull clone. Although the Red bull clone recipe was a failure....With it a Red Bull soda was born!!

    Blow off tube?

    What is with this blow off tube thing? I have read people say they are actually losing beer because there is so much Krausen that it is blowing out! I've just had the pale ale or a better bottle and nothing even close. I just brewed two days ago and it is in a better bottle fermenting away...

    wort chillers as waste of water??

Greg, the owner, goes completely out of his way to have "a sale" every time I'm there. LOL. And believe me with the crowd always there he's not hurting for business. Koz...
