    Mom wants to slow brewing

    HAHA yea, I like the comment about half a barrel and not wanting to do things half way... Ill let her know if she brings it up again. And I agree that 15 gallons isn't that much, I sucked down my first batch so I figure I would make two batches so that I wouldn't run out! Unfortunately, I...
