    The work is buying or making a filter and then running it from one keg to another.

    The Home Made Pizza Thread

    I don’t know if this counts as pizza or just flatbread. It was a scrap of sun-dried tomato sourdough, topped with EVOO, minced garlic, tomato paste, grated Parm, and black pepper. A little crunchy on the bottom, probably because it baked at only 425 on the stone.

    I really like the Mure and Peyrot lames, although they are cheap plastic. The fixed blade version is basically a huge piece of plastic to throw out when it gets dull. But the one pictured in the Amazon set is also fine. I’ve used a utility knife, a serrated knife, scissors, etc. They all work.

    48 hour yeast suggestions

    It’s not flavorless exactly, but it’s not a good flavor. I did some of that planning to do something similar, but ended up dumping it because i never figured out what to do with it.

    Question about Bottle Conditioning in my first-ever Homebrew

    If your readings are correct you should have crappy beer or bottle bombs or both. Sounds scary to me.

    I made some pretty kick ass pumpkin sourdough.

    I bought a pack of that but haven’t used it. Seems like cheating! (Joke) Look carefully at the pack. It should say something about allergens like dairy.

    Any Bacon Makers Here?

    Any grocery store with a meat department should be able to get belly for you. If they have a decent butcher operation (cutting and packaging stuff), then they might get you a better price. I think it should be cheaper per pound to get a 5lb piece than it is to get a 1 or 2 lb piece. But...

    Growing it up from scratch? Or from another starter?
