    Has anyone ever made a Saison?

    I brewed one on Jan 24 and just racked it to my secondary. Not too sure if I need the secondary, outside of the fact I do not have my bottles ready yet. Here's the recipe: 6.6 lbs light malt extract syrup 0.5 lbs dme 2.0 lbs light candy sugar 1.0 oz powdered ginger root 1.0 oz bitter...

    help. I just broke my only air lock.

    I am about 30 min into my boil and I broke my only air lock. Getting a new one is not possible and the only person I know to borrow from is not home. Any ideas on how to make one? I use the standard bucket for a primary.

    Great Reviews

    Last night I took my Brewers Best Red Ale to my nieces 6th b-day party. I know, what I am doing taking beer to a children's party. We adults gotta have something to do, right? Everyone who took part loved it. The best response was from a friend of ours from Germany who is very skeptical of...

    I am currently relaxing on my couch enjoying my Red Ale. I just cracked the first on open and it looks great, smells fantastic and tastes even better. Is there anything better than fruits of your own labor? This weekend I am going to bottle a stout that I have had in my secondary for about 2...
