A big beer refers to the original gravity and overall alcohol content, a stout is not
necessarily "big" but it can be. A 4.5% abv Stout is not big, 8%abv Stout is big.

Should be fine for a starter, but decant to protect the quality of your beer.

In a pinch I use painters masking tape and a sharpie.

I do it all the time with a hop sack and some sterilized fishing line. Works great.

Craft beer isn't going anywhere. Yes, some of the breweries will close, and growth will slow,

Buckets leak. Check for krausen and leave it alone if you see one. Hydrometer is the only true

should easily do the trick.

I don't see any problem with using them. It's not ideal but most stuff settles out once you
ferment anyways. It should still taste good.

While I'm sure is runs great, my fear would be it breaking down in the move. Things rust and
