    Vegemite in beer?

    Greetings. A co-worker just got back from Down Under and brought me a little packet of Vegemite spread. I've wiki'd the stuff and see it's made from Brewer's yeast, so then I began thinking about how I could use it in a beer. I'll ferment just about anything. So... Anyone have an...

    Potassium Sorbate & Backsweeten

    Greetings. I am getting ready to add some potassium sorbate to a melonmel that's dried out. My question is, do I add the potassium sorbate and give it a few days or so before backsweeting with honey? or can I do this all at once? One other question is the method for backsweeting. What is...

    Priming Individual Bottles

    Greetings Beer Fans. I've been kegging beer now for awhile, but I've been trying to archive a six pack of each batch either for personal reasons or for competitions. I've been using the Muntons Carb tabs, per what they say of 4-5 tabs per 12oz. bottles, and have been really disappointed with...

    Too Dry a Melonmel

    Greetings, I just racked into secondary my blackberry mead and it's way to dry. Typically I prefer my meads to be sweet. This is the second time in a row this has happened. As far as this batch goes, the OG=1.130 and 17 days later the racking gravity = 1.012. This puts my mead at 15.5%ABV...

    Carbonating Cap on Growler?

    Greetings. Anyone ever make and use a growler carbonating cap? If so, any issues? I'm thinking about making one so I can keep my beer a bit longer than 24 hrs, even at 24 it's not the same. I'm looking for something a bit longer, yet I'm not looking to store. Cheers. Travel Mon

    Fresh Ginger Adjunct Question

    Greetings, I've made a ginger hefe in the past and used 1/4 lb fresh ginger, that I ran through a food processor. The ginger taste was rather prominent and probably too much. I added the fresh ginger in the last 10 min of the boil, but this time I'm going to mix up the ginger with 2 cups...

    RECIPE? Prussia Pride IPA || Rock Bottom Brewery

    Greetings, A few weeks back I stopped by a Rock Bottom Brewery for a pint. I tried their IPA and really enjoyed it a lot. Am curious if anywhere out there has an AG recipe or an extract recipe for this. I'd really like to give it a go. Thanks in advance. Cheers Travel Mon
