comment Can I use fructose as a priming sugar and how much should I use?
Not sure what you said about energy is true, yeast produces alchool from sugar, while humans have a different metabolism. Sucrose(C12H22O11) is made of one molecule of glucose(C6H12O6) and one of fructose(C6H12O6). Yeast splits sucrose in the two simple sugars (invertase) and then digests the two. So there is no difference. Moreover the part about energy is jsut wrong. Energy per gram of any carbohidrate is 4cal/g so it is the same for sucrose and fructose. CO2 is simply liked to gravity points and attenuation of yeast.

comment My bottles are Conditioning underwater. Why are there bubbles on the caps on day 2 but not day 0 through 1?
Moreover unless you pass your day looking at your bottles how can you know if some gas went out of the bottles and you didn't see it? :)

comment Using pine in beer
In my knowledge is for taste, C. Papazian reports two or three recipes in his Complete Joy, where spruce is used alongside with hops (for example in a porter where rather unconventional ingredients like chili, ginger, chocolate are used)
