I know several folks that I've helped along at the cooperage but they were already making it and just wanted some help with ideas. These folks had already shared some of their wares with me a long time before they asked for my input. When someone calls me a hillbilly, I take it as a complement.

Doogie wrote:@IG - yes, there is a lot here ... however creating a straight forward tutorial is difficult because:
1) People are volunteers here ... so they have to dedicate time to this for free
2) Unless it is kept real simple, the text would probably inspire a lot of debate (for example - I do not keep heads for feints, others do ...)
3) We would be competing with all the youBoobs out there
But if it were to be created - and a link included in the registration email, then maybe the process would be easier for newcomers, and the questions like "my alcoholmeter says that my turbo wash with 50Kg of sugar in 10L of water is not done, but my loose fermenter airlock is not doing anything, can I run it with my modified kettle with a 1/4" arm and worm I bought on ebay" and "youTube guy MoOnShIn3rZ_KiNgZ said dont worry about methanol and to carbon filter it and add essences - it tasted really good but I barfed both ways after drinking it - is something wrong?" type questions may go down in popularity.
