You guys are killing me!

My wife is due in May and I've been brewing my butt off to develop a decent stockpile.

So are my future brewing days really that limited due to the baby?

Calculating ABV

(OG-FG)*131

Where does the 131 come from?
Same question for the 105 when calculating ABW.

Jamil says that a slower start allows the yeast to create more of a flavor profile than an immediate start. An immediate start may have a negative impact on the intended flavor.

Belgian yeast like it hot, so getting to 85 is not a concern.

Even if it was a concern it wouldn't be about the yeast health, rather the esters the yeast produced at thise temps.

Run it under hot water until it's pliable enough to jam on further or soak it in starsan until it's slippery enough to jam on further. Once it's on about 1/4 inch it stays on very well for me.

It is possible to over pitch, but you didn't do it with two packets of yeast unless you have a very low gravity beer.

+1 to letting it age.
It is amazing how great a beer that was once too bitter can taste after a few months in the bottle.

O2 Absorbing Bottle Caps

My LHBS has all of the bottle caps in large bins out on the floor.
Are the O2 absorbing caps going to saturate from all of the contact with air?
