    They do fade over time. Mine had moderate chili flavor when I bottled and now it's very
    subtleNot true in my case. Its been 8 months in bottles and the beer is still way too spicy.

    I brewed a Golden Ale on Sunday and direct pitched it with a seasonal WYeast 3739 that I had
    picked up last Summer and kept in the fridge since. No activity whatsoever at 65 degrees house
    temp. I can'...

    Just tasted mine after 2 weeks on the coffee/nibs/chili vanilla. Chili is by far the strongest
    flavor - I only used the 3 dried anchos. And its a bit too spicy at this point. Should I try to
    pull the ...

    I've never had a problem when washing it right after transfer, but I used my only tube for an
    airlock and after a few days the crud was hardened on the inside.Do you just throw away your

    I agree. Guess I'm just lazy, but if an oxiclean soak doesn't work, it goes into recycling. Not
    worth the time or effort to take a brush to it.That made me laugh - only because my MIL won't
    recycle an...

  • Posted in thread: what will plastic do to my beer? on 01-01-2013 at 08:08 AM

    I've probably melted one in my chili before and still eaten it.
