I made a really easy to use carbon filter out of the right material. It sits in the corner of a spare bed room covered in dust. I learned if you do it right you don't need it!

Re: Tomato paste alterative

The brand name was Pace and it had dehydrated garlic in it. Not sure how much. But the yeast loved the salsa. Not much of the flavor carried over but you can detect a hint of it in there.

I have used tomato paste in my wash for a couple of years now as a nutrient for the yeast. I don't have any complaints about it, and I know it helps it go dry much faster than without. There is no taste that carries over as far as I can tell. But last week I was getting a wash ready and was about to...

Re: Jimbo's Wheat Flour AG Experiment

Two weeks ago I started a faux wheat whiskey (sugar head) and was going to run it today. Too many other things like naps and playing stupid games came up so it has another week to clear. It should be good. Fingers crossed.
