    Has anyone used a bread maker to re-hydrate dry yeast?

    Ok, this might be a bad idea, but it seems viable. My wife just bought a breadmaker ($7 at a thrift store). It has a dough function where it the beater stirs around and then it heats gently to help dough rise. I am not the best at re-hydrating my yeast. Sometimes I forget and pitch cold...

    What NOT to do with a keg...

    Oh boy did I make a mess yesterday! I am new to kegging, so that will be my excuse. I thought I could save some time by combining the secondary and carbonation steps by just using the keg(with no airlock) to do secondary. In (my) theory, the CO2 released from secondary would carbonate the...
