    Who's brewing this weekend, Aug 26th/27th

    This weekend I will be bottling my first brew, a heavily hopped Nut Brown Ale, and will brew up a simple Hefeweizen (not really the right time of year for it but its still in the 90's here in the mid-Atlantic and I wanted to get at least one under my belt before next summer!)

    bad seal on airlock - options?
