General maker, DIY-er, and drinker, which is why homebrewing is so much fun.

Interested in finding the holy grail of IPAs, seasonal recipes, and home brewing equipment solutions.

comment How likely is contamination in an average batch?
The questions were just off-the-cuff examples. Maybe the title should have been phrased along the lines of "What are uncontrollable sources of contamination in an average batch?" You're answer was still great and got a +1 from me.

comment How likely is contamination in an average batch?
All the other answers were great but this told me what I needed to know, the "why" of how a batch can be contaminated if you cut corners and one of the things you are actually protecting against in an average kitchen environment. Thanks.

comment What are some alternatives to hops?
That sounds really interesting. Do you have any other tips? How much tea did you use for what size batch?

I just noticed the lack of specification as to the type of extract on the page. The in-store flyer I am almost positive said DME, so that's what I used, 3 3-pound bags of dry extract.
