I brew a 10% RIS every year (with S05) and haven't had any issues bottle carbonating until this

I was more just curious than anything. I guess for the barrel house concept to be effective

fermentation capacity o...

Here's an odd legal scenario I've been pondering lately, wondering what your thoughts
are...From what I understand, wort is legally considered beer when the yeast is pitched. So
