    You don't even need to shake the f*!% out of it. Would a stir plate be helpful? Sure, but just
    swirl it up a bit here and there as you walk by. It's certainly not 0% viability, you should be
    fine with...

    Late night Sancho Panza in the cold. Figured it would be a short smoke because it got beat up
    in my backpack when I flew home or the holidays, but it's smoking like a champ. Glad that I
    bundled up, lo...

    Get some exercise and use the corona :) I'm in a similar situation and couldn't imagine using
    anything else.

    Thanks for the info. I don't have a pure o2 setup, but I pour through a sanitized strainer and
    then also use an immersion blender "wand" for a bit to whip up a nice foam. My beers are
    -usually- relati...

    I have been thinking of an oat mild for a while as I typically have lots of oats around. Can't
    really get my hands on mild malt easily, but I'll be using your recipe as a jumping off point.
    How do you...

    So my Export India Porter has really turned the corner and is one of the best beers I've
    brewed. It's a little overcarbed, though. I seem to have this problem only with dark beers,
    though it's not 100...

    15 days is a little long for me too. Most of my beers are in the 1.040-1.055 range, but 8-10
    days is about the sweet spot for many of my recipes. Not that I think 15 days is -too- long or
    anything.The...

    Lancero February? That's a horrible month to dedicate to lanceros!I did have an El Triunfador
    lance yesterday though :p

    I was actually thinking that adding new yeast might allow more into the bottle and increase the
    chances/effect of autolysis. I typically don't add new yeast at bottling time either, even with
    strong b...

    Hmm, that's interesting. I've never had autolysis occur in the bottle, even with beers 2-3
    years old. Did you add new yeast for carbonation when bottling?
