higher temperature will increase your hydrometer readings on both the OG and FG I think, right?

Why wash yeast at all? The stuff you get from the store has "nutrients" in it. Isn't that just
wort/beer?I have been scooping yeast and whatever's left of the beer from the bottom of primary
in an iod...

The swing tops are very strong. I bottle conditioned in a Grolsch bottle and over-carbed. It
might have been in the bottle six weeks. One night I heard breaking glass and I checked the
cabinet... The ...

Yes. I have not tried with a screw top but it works fine with the Grolsch-style tops. In fact I
