Well I've bought some kitchen/bathroom "wet area" silicone. It says "mould/spore resistant" ;)
Will see how it goes. Ideally I'm after a level of bonding that if I bump it it's not going to

Close to 1060 for a session beer? Hopefully your friends are seasoned vets!I don't know how set
you are on the malt bill or what style IPA's you enjoy the most, but in my mind sessionable ipa

By cleanest I just mean low ester profile, something that will really let the hops shine
through. Us-05 is regarded as being really clean, but can have a very prominent peach/apricot
flavor if you don...

Well, I did read the whole thread, it was more of a suggestion for other people looking through
thread after thread for a clone. When you read Pats message about amber malt, it is a little
