    Fridge temps won't preclude nasties from growing in your wort and there is no guarantee that
    boiling alone (not under pressure) will be hot enough to kill everything, particularly the more
    toxic stuff...

    I regularly can starter wort. I just did a batch the weekend before last. It makes throwing a
    starter together a 5 minute exercise. I do 12x quart jars and 12x pint jars at a time, which is
    4 gallons ...

    So I have a question.. I'm sure its covered but do you squeeze your hop bag? i boiled in mine
    for the first time over the weekend and i wasn't sure if i should squeeze my hop bag or
    not.I've never use...

    Looks fine to me.

    I'd let it go. 5%, 6%, 7%, whatever. It's all good.

    As long as the Hefe keg is sealed well, it will stay carbonated. Each pull you take will cause
    it to lose a little bit of carb, but it will take a while before it's noticeable.

    I do not think pulling the bag for 10g batches will be doable without a hoist. With 12 gallons
    of water + the grains sitting on top of your bag, it will take something like 120 lbs of
    lifting pressure...

    Once the bag has drained, it's not that heavy. Just lift it up and drop it into a bucket and
    set out of the way.I've never brewed full batches indoors, just smaller 3-4g batches. For
    those, I've alway...

    I don't know about the WL045 Scotch WHISKEY yeast.I have used WL028 Edinburgh Scotch Ale Yeast
    and liked the results. I would see if they have any of it.+1For a Scotch ale, I'd use a

    I doubt you'll lose a full 2 gallons to the grains, especially if you squeeze the bag at all,
    it will likely be about half of that. I find with minimal squeezing I get around 0.075g/lb loss
    to absorpt...
