    I've used a 64oz growler the last two times, I don't have a stirplate, or flask so I just gave
    it a little swirl each time I walked by. No problems at all, wish I could see what was going on
    in there ...

    I live in new england, brewing on my stove during winter is nice. I dont want to be brewing in
    my garage during winter. Plus, its AC in my house as compared to the garage during summer
    months. worried...

    That stove is really holding you back. Kind of pointless to upgrade your equipment while you
    are still boiling on the stove, IMO.

    Shouldn't be a problem. Would have made a good dry hop. Oh well!

    5 gallons of 1.070 ale should have a pitch of about 242 billion cells, according to the
    calculator I use. So I would make a starter for that beer.

    I think the GigaYeast packets are ~200 billion viable cells. You could probably get away with
    directly pitching a fresh pack into 5 gallons of wort with an OG of 1.060 or less.

    Go with the link that @laredo7mm suggested, and get the biggest pot that you can afford. You
    can't even do a boil for 5 gallons of wort in that 5-gallon pot in the OP, and an 8-gallon pot
    is going to ...

    Yeah, the 90 minute Simcoe addition makes no sense at all...

    Ehh, don't think so. I have a 64 oz growler, a 32 oz growler, and a bunch of quart mason jars.
    I don't *think* I have anything else. I'll eventually get an Erlenmeyer flask, just haven't yet
    and I'm m...

    Just hope that it isn't acetobacter.
