    Hobgoblin and Anchor Liberty Ale?

    Hobgoblin is British. Liberty Ale is a nice beer, but no way would I pay $4.50 for one.

    Did I kill my strip therm?

    This has not been the case for me. I've measured my fermenters with with a probe and the strip thermometer has been damn close.

    Made my first Apfelwein...

    I fill my 5 gallon better bottle to the neck and have never had a problem. I just get a small ring of bubbles.

    Made my first Apfelwein...

    Wait until it starts fermenting, then get back to us about the smell!

    This. But, the smart thing to do is use your hydrometer to make sure fermentation is complete.

    Amount of sugar in bottles

    Plenty of people use them, but they are more expensive and you can't carb your bottles to a specific volume like you can with dextrose (or other sugars).

    Making a starter...1l of water in 1l flask OK?

    The problem with measuring your DME instead of weighing it is everyone's cup or 1/2 cup is different. You should use a 10:1 water to DME ratio, which like stated above will be 1000 mL of water to 100 g of DME. This will get your starter very close to 1.040.

    1st AG tomorrow and a quick question.

    Wow...that's pretty deep. :drunk: IMO, unless your water is totally screwed don't expect to gain 12-16 points like was posted earlier. Most people's pH is fine even before the buffer, unless you are on well water.

    Ebay feedback pisses me off

    I must be confused. If I just buy, why the hell would I be worried about feedback? If you pay for your stuff when you buy it, what is the difference?
