    Just want to make sure what Aroma Steep is meant in the version 4 recipe above. Can someone
    please clarify. Does this mean steeping for 30 minutes before cooling? If so, why not just

    I don't really care about it as long as it doesn't have a negative effect on my brews. I would

    I have been using BetterBottles and other similar PET carboys with no issues for years.
    Recently, one of my newer (maybe a year old) BetterBottles developed a haze on the inside that
