[quote]I'd be happy with 1.016, but was just curious if you think a starter would help?

In the end I decided to ditch the inverted sugar / honey all together and went with. 90% Thomas Faucett Maris Otter 6.7% Baird's Carastan 3.3% Torrified Wheat Use EKG/Fuggles combo to get somewhere near 28 IBUs. Should be a relatively easy drinking pub ale for Christmas....

Brewing an ordinary bitter on Friday and the recipe calls for 1/3 lb invert sugar. The process of making it looks fairly straight forward, but I'm thinking of saving some time and using honey instead. Anyone ever used/made this stuff before?...

[quote] Is this brew in a bag a good option for someone like me? I am a bit of a beer snob/perfectionist, so I'll likely be frustrated the first few times anyways.

If I remember correctly, the dividing by .6 is an estimate based 75% mash efficiency. It's something like ([grain potential] * 75%) / [DME potential]. Using 35 as an avg base grain and 44 as the average DME. That's easily achievable, especially if you double mill your grains. ...

Complete kegerators are expensive, but if you are looking a kegerator that you can open a box, plug it in, and serve some beer it's going to be the Danby kegerators. A two faucet tower Daby will run between $500 and $600. Kegco had some that are a little cheaper, but I have no experience with ...
