    I think it's any product that's used in food must be food grade, but I'm curious what your
    source is.TheZymurgist,If you check the FDA website, there's a flowchart that describes the
    decision process ...

    Any product (including dry ice) that is used with food must be food grade.

    This is an interesting read. Its got that going for it, but I do have to agree with others, it
    seems as though it may be overkill.If you liked West Coast IPAs as much as I do but drank beers
    as bad as...

    Diffusion of gases of different densities - an interesting demonstration on YouTube. demo
    used bromine and air. Bromine is about 7 times more dense than air (if I recall correctly). CO2
    is about 1.5...

    I like the ingenuity here. O2 makes for lousy IPAs for sure.Couple of process improvements you
    could make if you need to go even further.1. Ferment in Better Bottles and get one of those CO2
    injectors...

    It sounds like you have concluded that your beer tastes off due to oxidation during your
    bottling process.Is that really the cause?Find someone who can keg your next batch, and see if
    you see and tast...

    TheZymurgist,I brew two kinds of beers - stouts and IPAs. Perhaps I don't notice the color
    change on my stouts since they are already black. The IPAs are light enough that they
    definitely changed colo...

    One consideration I've had lately was to buy a C02 tank in order to come up with a system to
    purge everything and then when I've got the money buy the equipment to keg.With the tank you
    could transfer...

    Hop character (at least to me) fades real fast...malty beers don't seem to show signs of
    oxidation but by the time my bottled IPA's have been conditioned (I try to go no more than 10
    days) the charact...

    You lost me at step 1. You bake your bottles?Yes I do bake my bottles. It's one of the bottle
    sanitizing options Palmer outlines in "How to Brew" - he has a table of temperature and
    duration needed. F...
