    You can bottle in your basement, just use 67 as your temp for calculating priming sugar. No
    need to bring it up. Any CO2 driven off at 67F won't reappear at 57F

    I think you get the better flocculating yeast by collecting from primary.

    So for instance if you raise the temp to 70F for a Diacetyl rest after fermentation has
    stopped, and then cold crash at 35F before bottling, you'd want to use 70F in the priming
    calculator not 35F, si...

    I think I read somewhere that it means the highest temp your beer reached after fermentation
    stopped. The calculators are trying to estimate the residual CO2 left in your beer, which is a
    function of ...

    I wouldn't go overboard with sauerkraut, vinegar, or sourdough starter... maybe just a
    spoonful. You might have better luck with the ginger bug, depending what's in it. You want a
    mix of bacteria and ...

    yeah, maybe if it's not pasteurized.

    true... you need the temperature of your sample. So perhaps that error is a wash in your error
    budget. So you just need to figure out the error of your volume measurement and the error in
    your mass me...

    The more things you have to measure, the more error creeps into the final value. With the
    scale, you need to accurately measure the temperature, volume, and mass of the wort... with
    measurement errors...

    ... because five gallons of something you don't like is....well....punishment for doing
    something you should've thought a little more about!:drunk:

    You can always use the fruit or puree in secondary, then add as little or as much extract as
    needed, to taste, at bottling/kegging time.I think the danger of too much extract is a cough
    syrup taste...
