    Beer/cider blend?

    Thoughts on brewing a 4 gallon batch of beer, letting it ferment, then at the end of primary adding a gallon of apple cider? I would let the cider ferment out as well. Was thinking of mashing the beer high, like 158F to go for a malty brew. Then, if the cider drys it out, I won't end up...

    Muntons Carb Tabs...

    Anyone use these? Going to be bottling in 22 ouncers on Saturday and plan on doubling the tabs per bottle (6 tabs for low carbonation). Out of curiosity, I tasted one and held it in my mouth for a bit. It didn't dissolve. Should it? I would think that's the design so the yeast can eat it. I...
