General Homebrew Discussion / BOTTLES, BOTTLES, BOTTLES
« on: February 20, 2013, 12:54:11 PM »
Good day ladies and gents,

I live in Miami, FL.  I was wondering if anyone knew of a good place to get some bottles.  Or if you know of a good website please let me know.

Thank you for any information.

General Homebrew Discussion / How to store beer
« on: September 13, 2011, 08:11:03 AM »
whats up guys,

  i had a quick question about storing beer.  i am going to be moving pretty soon and will have to get rid of my beer fridge.  so i need to know if there is a way to store beer that was once refrigerated.  i will need to store these in a storage room.  is there any correct way to do this without the pesky dangers of my gorgeous beers (ex. my dogfish 120 ipa) going bad.  any help on this would be greatly appreciated.  thank you in advance.

Yeast and Fermentation / Ceramic coated stock pot?
« on: May 07, 2011, 04:17:41 PM »
i got a real good deal on a 21 qt. ceramic coated stock pot.  some people have told me that this is a great way to start.  others have told me that i should have gone stainless steel.  i was looking for a well priced stainless steel stock pot, but they were all to expensive for me right now.  can anyone tell me what i should be careful for when brewing with this pot?  any help is appreciated.  thank you.

Yeast and Fermentation / Silly liquid yeast question...
« on: April 20, 2011, 01:45:13 PM »
i know this is going to seem like a really silly question, but here it goes...

i know that there is an expiration date on the liquid yeast.  is there any harm in using expired liquid yeast?
