comment Is 55% ABV “beer” actually beer?
Mead is considered beer too even though its basically honey and yeast. I was just making an example. I think the beer in question has hops though.

comment When do I add spices to spice up a holiday brew?
This sounds really interesting. I have basil dieing in my backyard now due to the cold. I'd like to find a use for it. Beer would be awesome. What recipe/style did you start with?

comment What's the next item, burner, big brew kettle, or AGS?
I think the turkey fryer is a great idea. I may just have to pick one up myself.

comment Shaking vs not shaking
I think you misunderstood my question. Mike S's answer is more what I was looking for. I know why the packet of wyeast inflates. I am just curious about the actual fermentation and secondary, what makes the optimal use of the yeast.

comment Why my homebrewed lager beer bottles explode?
How exactly are you bottling? I've never really had this problem, but I let my fermentation go for as long as possible. A friend of mine was having this problem and I found it was because he was taking the priming sugar and putting it directly inside the bottles rather than dissolving it in water then putting it in the beer then bottling.
