    Stabilizing Sour to not funk up kegerator!

    I'm thinking about making some all brett beers using wyeast 3110 or wlp645 inspired by Wild Brews and want to keg them instead of my normal bottling of sours. With that said, has anyone stabilized their sours with either sulfite or sorbate with good results? I don't want to funk up my beer...

    Explain to me the difference between Panela (Piloncillo) and Turbinado Sugar!

    After doing some research online, I don't really see a difference in them. They are both very little/not refined at all and are evaporated can juice. Also, IMO, Piloncillo tastes nothing like brown sugar. Thoughts?

    I'm going to make Orange Wine (2) found here http://winemaking.jackkeller.net/reques33.asp, but since I don't make wine, I don't have all of those wine specific ingredients such as wine yeast, tannin, and pectic enzyme. So, I'm thinking about making a 2 gallon batch of this. Here is what I'm...

    What should I do with a buttload of satsumas?

    If you were wondering, satsumas are basically small oranges. Anyways, a friend has given me tons of these things and says that he's got more on the way! While they are delicious, we can not eat all of them. What can/should I do with them?

    120 or 90 minute boils, but hops at 60??

    Alright, given that you're brewing a style where you'd have a long boil to concentrate the wort (Barleywine, RIS, etc..), rather than reduce DMS as in lighter beers that call for a longer boil, why do most of these big beer recipes only call for a 60 minute addition instead of a 90 or 120...
