    5 year old beer ... what to do?

    still breathing ... that's a good thing :) The batch in the bucket looks disgusting ... will not be trying that! Looks like cheese making when the curds and whey separate. The batch in the carboy (glass) looks great. Took some out and tasted it ... reminds me of a weak Hennessy White ...

    Home depot 5 gal water bottle--as a fermenter?

    I use the Home Depot one for a secondary from time to time, use a #10 stopper and you will be fine.

    I've bought a few kits from them and they turned out great. I like the fact that everything is sealed and they are not cheap on the ingredients. My local hbs can be a little cheap on the ingredients if you buy a kit from them. I would buy from them again.

    Corrado's in New Jersey

    I've been there a few times and they have an interesting array of items. I would agree that it is more geared towards the wine people, but that doesn't mean that they don't have a decent selection of beer supplies. If you are looking for beer bottles, books, dme, yeast, chemicals and other...
