You should re-hydrate the nutrient first in must or non-chlorinated water first.  Add to must after degassing.

How often can you vote?  Is this like Chicago?

Note that we have revised the bottle requirements to a > 22 oz requirement.  So 1 22 or 750 ml is ok

For the amount we use as homebrewers, the additional cost is moot to use the proper product.  Why reinvent the wheel?

62dF, Cotes de Blanc yeast, no nutrients.  If you want to go New England style, add brown sugar, raisins or dates, cinnamon optional

Too bad you ruled out the Southeast.  Bluffton is one of the top 5 places to move , and a top place to retire.

Had DB Vienna a few years ago after they won the medal at GABF.  It was good.  Had it last summer again, and was disappointed.

With what you have, you're half way there.  Make a Denny mash tun, get the fermentation bucket.  Invest in a grain mill if you are going to do all grain.  Get fermentation control (refrigerator & temp control) before spending serious coin on Grainfather.  Good thermometer & a refractometer too.  Money is better spent on keg set up too.

Choke cherries?

...and Garden Fresh Tomatoes.

You Sir, may I subscribe to your newsletter.

Going to do a bacon wrapped loin for the Fourth.  Anything special to do with the cabbage on a smoker?

Atlanta has been mentioned.  We looked at Savannah in the past when the conference was much smaller.  Real problem is GA beer laws and homebrew.

First, Welcome to the obsession and Thank You For Your Service.

There is a wealth of information on this board.  Feel free to ask the questions, no matter how basic.  I will recommend you getting intouch with the local homebrew club in North County.  The comraderie and help they can give you is invalluable.

Oh, BTW there's a little gathering in your neck of the woods this week ;D
