Carboy bottom suddenly cracked? The Hidden Reason Glass Carboys are Shattering (and How to Avoid It)

Homebrewing glass carboys are some of the most important investments we can make.

Our April Fools Gag: Homebrewing Natty Light

It’s April Fools, and what better way to fool ourselves than to brew up a grocery store beer. In this episode, we’re attempting to home brew Natural Light aka Natty Light.

This recipe is ALL about the orange blossom honey. A good honey is critical to this mead’s success.

Note: If you’ll be bottle-conditioning instead of kegging, use about a cup of the non-fermentable sugar…
