    Advice on my "Margawheata" recipe? (my first original recipe)

    i just bottled it. It tastes great, but i always have trouble really figuring out if i like a beer before it't bottle conditioned. i wanted it to be really champagne-y, so i put in 1.25 cups sugar (in 52 bottles)... A friend of mine thinks the bottles are going to burst in my hand. I hope not.

    It is done. I woke up this morning and it had blown out all out over my kitchen floor! (yea for healthily fermenting beer, boo for having to clean up a giant mess) I am going to add tequila-soaked oak cubes as someone suggested in a different thread. How long do you think i should soak them...

    whats the craziest thing you've ever looked at and said "yeah, I could ferment that"?

    I have been thinking about going half malted barley (so I can get the proper enzymes) half Lucky Charms cereal for a while. It would probably be horrible, but so are those "turkey" and "mashed potatos and gravy" Jones Sodas they sell around the holidays, and people drink those just to say they...
