    Baking dextrose. Any different?

    Browsing my local restaurant supply store, I came across a 50lb sack of dextrose monohydrate in the baking aisle. Is this the same stuff used for brewing? I'm considering making some seltzers and have been looking to buy some corn sugar. This stuff is $.73/lb.

    Inherited Parts from roommate looking for help

    All, I've inherited the following parts from my roommate (who has now left). He had dreams of making seltzer water at home and now I'm looking to complete those dreams. Here is what I have - 1 carbonator [from research online it looks like the mccann carbonator] - 1 5 lb tank of CO2 full...

    Hard Seltzer smells like shrimp

    I'm fairly new at home brewing, and just made my first attempt at Hard Seltzer (raspberry). Tried it for the first time, tasted good, looked clear, smells like seafood (or something similar). My only thought was I used one of those two-stage packets for clarifying, and believe at least one...
