I have brewed two batches on this new little system I have and both times my wort has just tasted kinda "off".

    Bucket fermenter contamination - still able to use?

    I don't know if I had a contamination or not, I'm still trying to figure that out. If I did, would my bucket fermenter still be able to be used?

    IPA Recipe: Oranges, Grapefruit, Sea Salt

    Howdy, I am a relatively new brewer with a 5 gal home kit (extract only) and am looking to create a recipe with the ingredients in the title but am not knowledgeable about achieving these desired tastes. I want it to be hoppy, with a mix of sour and sweet with a tad of saltiness. I want it to...
