    Woo hoo! I'm in!

    That wasn't a heck of a long time to steep them. That MIGHT be the culprit. Plus your grains
    are sitting in an ideal temperature for an even shorter time. My $0.02 would be to go ahead and
    heat your w...

    That's the only thing I can think of, unless relative humidity will effect it. But it's been a
    decade since I took chemistry, so...

    Don't worry about it. The amount is small and there's not a brilliant way to prevent this. If
    you're using the muslin bag, you can get a nylon bag with finer mesh at the homebrew store. I
    prefer those...

    I don't really know how hot it gets, so I'm not sure how high a temp paint you need. For me, I

    This sounds like a terribly fun experiment. From my perspective, I was taught to brew, so

    How different are the beers you're brewing, in terms of gravity and such? Just thinking out
    loud (or in type), and maybe it's the dissolved stuff affecting things?

    You're probably fine. The starter is fairly alcoholic by now which helps.

    Yeah, same with ours. Once it burns off it's no problem.The bayou burner pretty much is a
    turkey fryer. Depends on what you have...

    The one advantage to transferring to the carboy is you can use a giant tube for blowoff. We put
