@BridgewaterBrewer: in soda plastic bottles, just left the screwtop a bit loose so the CO2 leaves during fermentation. Then to prime, you just put a tad of sugar in and screw it tighter.

Thanks I might try this. What about leaving a ring of krausen in each bottle? I don't see a way around that.

I know, it just happens to taste good! Once the krausen formed and died out, the ring got sucked into the beer without any noticeable effect on flavour. I've started now to do this if I happen to brew too much beer by accident (I do a few 1 gallon experiments, so if I end up with a spare pint or some spare liquid malt extract I make a bottle out of it... nothing goes to waste!).

While I agree there's science that supports the need for a 60 minute boil, there's also science behind HSA and autolysis, two problems that aren't so much problems at a homebrew level. There's a couple of IPA recipes in the database that I've done that don't call for a 60 minute addition, though I've always done a 60 minute boil. I'm really tempted to try to do a side by side comparison between a 30 minute and 60 minute boil.
