    Thanks for all the help guys. Good stuff...

    Update: Did some more searching and Charlie Bamforth, Prof. of Beer at UC Davis, says it's not
    something to worry about. So I guess I'm not gonna worry about it...

    I bought it in a store and it's the 3rd edition, which is his latest. The passage I'm talking
    about is on pg. 72. The process is called Hot Side Aeration. Apparently there's a lot of debate
    as to whet...

    That's what I always thought but Palmer says you should not aerate until the wort is cooled to
    below 80F. Although a lot of old books recommended exactly the process I do, Palmer says that
    when wort i...

    My last few batches I have been pouring hot wort from my kettle directly into a bucket and then
    topping off with cold (pre-boiled) water. I thought I had found a really clever (okay, not that
    clever) ...

    Thank you both! I haven't tried the process you recommended, Yooper, but it makes a lot of
    sense. I've been boiling 3.5 gal so next time I'll try reducing to, say, 2-2.5 gal. With
    evaporation I'll pro...

    So HTB says a significant factor in hop utilization is the "vigor" of the boil. I use a crappy
    electric stove and can barely achieve a simmer when I boil. Should I increase my boil time by
    10-15 mins ...

    I use a length of food grade tubing, sanitised and wear nitrile gloves also sanitized and put
    my thumb over the top.How did I not think of that? Brilliant!

    I don't see Yooper on that post. She is quite knowledgable, so I won't disagree with her
    :).Oops, it was aiptasia who said that:"It's not going to matter a hill of beans if you pitched
    at 78f unless y...

    Thanks!I got that thing about off-flavors not being produced in the first 24-36 hrs from
    Yooper's post here: you disagree, or was s/he talking about other off-flavors?
