my 15' pool varies 10 F during the day. Very little can be done passively (cheaply). Not

It is VERY POSSIBLE! I have made 115 gallons of extract kits. SG is below advertised EVERY
TIME! Buy the appropriate DME and add until SG is where you want it.

Since we have probably twisted this into a YEAST IS AWESOME thread, here is my drop of
wisdom.Immediately before opening bottle, lay it on its side and roll it to suspend the yeast.

I should have said, stir or mix rather than aerate. My goal was not to introduce air, and I

I have been wondering this same thing. I know you will get a flavor difference, because yeast
