Kegging and Bottling / Re: Confectioners Sugar as Priming Sugar

I've been bottling with table sugar for years. Never a problem. It's also something a neighbor would let you borrow!

Beer Recipes / Re: Slobber Knocker IIPA

I have a three gallon batch of IIPA going that'll have close to 9 ounces: feels kind of wimpy now.

What do you use to ferment a small batch? A 5 gal bucket/carboy etc seems too big.

I haven't heard this one but thanks for the info. I love these kind of experiments too. Reminds me of the decoction debate that people have. Always good to get some info from people who have done some taste tests.

This is a great thread. My waterproof boots just started to fall apart. Thanks all!

Lost the O-ring a few years ago. Crusher still works just fine.

Isn't there some sort of religious holiday connected to a similar miracle of a critical item lasting longer than it should? Beer? Oil? Something like that....

Well, I'm with Dave. I find that warmth and time really help get rid of any diacetyl I might have.

Yeah, I've only been brewing about eight years, but going through my first few notes is pretty funny.

"...odd vegetable smell...."

This is where the grown-ups hang out to discuss beer.

This is one of the great things about the internet. It's so easy to learn from the utter failures and misguided ideas of brewers who went before me.

Also, what temp are you fermenting at?

I have to admit, I rarely buy beer, but when I do it's almost always from the local brewery, about 25 miles away.

Glad she's ok. I've heard that garlic and onions are also pretty bad for dogs.
