    Definitive Mead Book

    Is there such a thing as a well-regarded and reasonably up-to-date "mead bible"? Something along the lines of @OldSock's American Sour Beers for sours, or the ever-popular Palmer for clean beers? A quick Amazon search reveals several potential candidates, a couple of which have even been...

    Peanut butter as temporary, easy-clean-up, food-safe joint compound...

    ...there are probably a thousand reasons this is a bad idea with actual beer, but it's working wonders in helping me debug the air leak in my igloo cooler mash tun bulkhead assembly. Anybody got a better idea for when even multiple layers of teflon tape won't quite cut it?

    Late-developing gushers... Infection? Overprimed?

    My first batch of beer has started coming up all gushers a couple months post-bottling; I'm hoping some more experienced brewers can help me figure out why. I started drinking them two weeks after bottling. I now realize that was too early -- the beer, an IPA recipe, was full of yeast flavor...
