    thanks im gonna be looking here in the boston area
  2. i made the mistake of using very hot water capping the bottle and shaking it to rinse it out. The result was a collapsed bottle that would not return to the orignal shape .i have been using warm water cap the bottle shake and dump and then rinse again. it seems to be working for me.then they are sanatized and ready to use again.
  3. Can anyone tell me how to add photos to posts. I have never done it before but would like to know how to. Thanks. (Kp)
  4. Well said. I have been brewing with mr beer for 3 years and still consider myself a noob.read the forum's ask questions there are alot of experienced brewers here who I have found more than willing to help us all make a great brew.
  5. I finally got to brew up my winter dark ale tonight and tried for the first time to rehydrate 1/2 a pack of nottingham yeast.I never rehydrated yeast before but figure its time to try some new things and see the results. I made it pretty much straight up with the exception of rehydrated yeast and a 1/2 lb of amber dme,never used that before either. Thanks again for all your responces,allways learning new things on this board.
  6. Thanks for the quick response and the info. I think ill dry pitch half of the pack with this batch and rehydrate the other half with a different batch ill be making later this week just to see if I notice any difference. Thanks again and happy brewing!!
  7. Hi everyone im getting ready to make a batch of wicked winter warmer and want to use Nottingham dry yeast. Its only a 2.5 gallon batch.the yeast pack is 11.55g the package gives instructions to rehydrate it.do I have to rehydrate or can I pitch it dry and should I only use half of it or pitch the whole pack? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
  8. I just bottled up a batch,gonna let it sit until November.starting a winter dark ale tomorrow.
  9. I use an stc1000 temperature controller with my mini fridge.You can get them on amazon for about $25.00. I've had mine for a few years and haven't had any trouble with it .
  10. It dosent matter about abv it matters about taste. A lot of low abv brews taste just as good if not better than high abv brew.I personally don't care about abv its the flavor.
  11. use3/4 teaspoon in each bottle
  12. Thanks for the link im gonna try this one and the magic hat on too
