    Yeah to echo, clarityferm doesn't eliminate all of the gluten in beer. To help you during the
    mash you could get industrial gloves that go most of the way up your arm if that's a problem

    How much grain got in there? If you are boiling grain husks it can make the beer astringent.

    Take a gulp of beer, let it warm up in your mouth, then spray it straight up into the air while
    in the shower. You can save water from the shower head this way.That'll dry sticky thought!

    I do enjoy a shower beer but here in CA we are in a drought so there isn't all that much time
    to linger and enjoy without feeling like you are contributing to the problem...

    I don't think it really matters. That being said it's probably a best practice to remove them
    since the pits can impart an almond flavor and have cyanide in them. The cyanide is a small
    concern since ...

    If you want to stick with that much chocolate then that is up to you and that is why it's
    homebrewing! What is your projected FG? In the low 20's is usually good for barrel aged beers
    as the booze and...

    Generally if the yeast is within it's allotted attenuation range then it's probably done
    fermenting so a target FG isn't always the best measure unless you have used a yeast a lot and
    know how it beha...

    Placing with an IPA in a comp with that many entries would be quite difficult. IPA is one of
    the most common categories and I would imagine that there were at least a couple hundred in
    that category. ...

    Yeah I agree with you on the barrel stuff. I wasn't implying that I go from sour to clean beer
    in barrels (that is a really bad idea for the reasons you mentioned), just that I use only
    equipment that...

    I see this all the time but I don't really agree unless someone is beating the **** out of
    their plastic. Proper cleaning will get rid of bugs just fine, particularly in fermenters
    because they're eas...
