Tried to read all posts, but close is what most craft breweries get. They still over charge anyway. Rock on and make beer, you will get it. Good luck.

Yeah, whutever. Wimpin out and cryin' cause his beer doesn't win after two months experience. Big deal. He"s either a brewer or he's not. He'll either shape up or ship out ( as my old DI often said).

Chinese - sixty in the cellar is kind of low for carbonating, but regardless if you've had a chance to pop one please let us know the results. The natives are getting restless.

Okay, come on, back off this guy... he tasted a few too many and the beer zombies got to him. I already drank the ones that hit him in the head, he'll come to soon.

Try leaving your beer in your primary for a month and don't use a secondary. You will be amazed at how much clearer your beer will be. Try to cool it faster than you have been. If can cold crash do it for a few days before you bottle. Don't worry about your water if you are doing extract. If it is good enough to drink it is good enough for extract. As for the zombies use head shots to kill them.
