If you can make a veggie steak that is just as good as a well marbled, rare piece of USDA prime
moo cow then I'll readily convert. I agree that I have no biological need to eat a large chunk
of cow an...

That's what I do, too. My system just doesn't have a good way to filter out hot break, and I
have a CFC so the cold break goes into the fermenter anyway. Hops debris is no big deal at all,
and I don't...

I haven't noticed any difference between bottled and canned brews although I have had SABL in a
can yet. I really wish all brews came in a can for the reasons mentioned previously. I also
wish I could...

foamed up during the night and already dropped by this morning. You may not see actual kräusen.

How much does temperature matter in secondary? I've got three beers in 2ndary underndark pillow
cases in the garage. It gets up to 90 or so sometimes.I can't tell you a drop dead temperature
but 90 is...

I wish I could grow a beard but my current job requires me to be on the HazMat team so I have
to be able to use a full face respirator at any time. I fear my beer has suffered due to the
lack of beard...

If it is still fermenting you should keep the beer in the recommended range for the yeast.
Otherwise it could go dormant and you could end up with too high a FG. Fast temperature swings
