Hey everyone, I am about to start a batch of home brew. Hi I recently got a Brewcraft Starter Kit from Costco.com, and just had a couple questions before I got started. On the fermenter lid, do I need to pull the outside stripping off, like it says to on the top of the lid. Or is that supposed to stay on for a better seal? The lid seems almost too hard to put on right now with the seal still attached, but, I didn’t want to pull it of without knowing for sure and ruin the lid completely. (The picture is the fermenter lid, and you can see where you would pull the stripping around the outside of it.)
Also, the kit came with your English Mild Draught Ale Recipe Kit. In it there are 2 bags of hops. They Are labeled Hops – 100043, and Specialty Hops – 100040. But in the instructions the hops are refereed to as Bittering Hops and Flavor Hops. Of my 2, which one is which?
Thanks for your help, and if you have any answers for me please post a comment below. The sooner I know what to do, the sooner I can start brewing!!!
