    Mr Beer - Read all about it and ask questions

    In my opinion it does not matter. It will not hurt as long as the tube is the right type and properly steralized. But why add another element to the mix that is goign to cause you to have to clean more items and steralize more items????

    Can you use honey as a primer for carbonation?

    Well I may experiment with a few bottles. My method is goign to be to get a small amount of water up to a boil and then add honey and a bit of corn sugar. Then I will add a small amoutn to a few bottles before addign my beer.

    First Stout- Not carbed.

    Yes it is interesting and I wonder if it has somehting to do with the type of beer. I am guessing more so than the type of beer it could be the fact that I used liquid yeast for the first time. IT worked well and took effect fast so I am not worried about that. Anotehr strange fact is...

    First Stout- Not carbed.

    I will let them sit longer not a problem. I was just concearned that stout might need more sugar for carbinaton or something like that. I used the coopers drops, 1 per bottle, on my wheat beer and it worked out perfect. Also the wheat beer I did with the drops and the ale I did with regular...

    That is funny cause I think the coopers drops are actually made up os 70% white sugar or something like that.

    Can you use honey as a primer for carbonation?

    Ok. I was wondering if anybody had every tried to use honey as a primer for bottle carbonation instead of sugar or sugar drops??? I purchased a small sampler pack of different honeys from Vermont and I wanted to try to see if the different honeys would impart different tastes to my beer...

    Sounds crazy but does home brew give you a headache?

    It was stored at around 71F the entire time it was fermenting. So I don't see how it could have been too hot. Granted I realize the internal temperature would have been hotter if the outside room temp was 71 but I am guessign it only went up about 2F. My batch that is currently fermenting...
