I have some hop plants and wanted to make some beer with the hops this year.
How many fresh hops would I need per gallon?
Haven't had time to weigh yet so are we talking a handful or much more/less than that?
Still not working. Wet cork, wet chamber.
It just mangles the cork.
The cork only fits in the chamber, I can't push it through the hole. Worth noting that these corks don't seem to spring back into shape after. Could they be beer bottle corks?
I've got one if these hand corkers using 19mm nomacorks but I cannot seem to get it to work, it just squashes the cork and seems impossible to get onto a bottle.
Any clues as to how they work? The instructions were in Italian! :)
I made a couple gallons of beetroot wine. It's quite dry right now, not very full bodied more like an extremely light rosé.
I saw some mentions of it being a dessert wine. If so, how much sugar should I add the second gallon before bottling and sorbating?
just got some use corny style kegs.
They need cleaning but they are holding pressure.
How often must you change the o rings and do I have to completely dismantle them to clean them or can I just run fluid through them?
I've seen edwort's recipe but I fail to see how that's award winning. The award winning must be the type of juice used or the yeast? I mean the recipe is juice+loads of sugar...ferment. that's like every cider :)
Any other interesting recipes to share?
