    alternatives to malt extract?

    Beer is made with malted barley as a main ingredient. Yes many other things can be added depending on style, rice, corn, wheat, honey, on and on, but if it doesn't have barley it isn't really what we call beer. All kinds of alcoholic beverages are made from all kinds of stuff, sake from...

    Recipe ideas?

    Ahh, it's happily bubbling away now at 61*.:mug: Not too worried about that nasty taste now either. I had bottled a batch of wine the day before and it's pretty young and rough. Guess that ruined my taste buds cause the beer I drank later last night after all the brewing also tasted yukky.:drunk:

    Recipe ideas?

    OK I did what you said, except the kit LME I just put in the fermenter and poured the boil on it. Ice bath and added water to 6 gallons and have OG @ 1.034 @ 73*. Sound right? Just waiting to add the 2112.

    Recipe ideas?

    Thanks! Your right I have no barley just extract. How about a half pound or quarter pound corn sugar? And I plan to just add the boil to the fermenter with the "no boil" kit extract already in the fermenter. Mix it up real well to dissolve and aerate and add cold water to top off.

    18 month old LME?

    It's canned sugar dude, I wouldn't worry.:mug: I have two cans here beside me now and while they don't say when they were made one says best before JUN 2010 and the other APR 2010.

    Keggle weld prices really vary in Baltimore

    I inspect welds for a living. Almost all of our work is stainless pipe and tube and we only use TIG for stainless hand welds, or an orbital machine on tubing. We install the tanks, tubing, valves, ect. in pharmaceutical plants. TIG is a superior process for stainless. MIG and stick welding are...
