Apparently Wyeast 1007 is one of the most difficult yeasts to clear. It doesn't flocculate well.

You might want to allow a bit more than 2 inches above the keg as I nearly kinked my gas line because the shelf above the keg was a bit close to the disconnect fittings.

I guess it depends on...

Orfy,

I have had some responses on another forum and the threat of scorching is apparently not an issue. A number of people said it works fine but don't mash in it or it burns the grains.

Usually you add the can plus 1kg of sugar when you make up the brew (prior to boiling or fermenting etc). You then use a small amount of dextrose (corn sugar) during bottling.

If you use 1kg of...

In Australia, we can get dry malt extract that the manufacturer claims is spray dried (Muntons from the UK). The other stuff is heated and vacuumed until crystalisation I think.

I thought this...

I think you might have trouble getting it to ferment right out. This might leave unfermented sugars in the bottles and cause them to explode. Just check your final gravity. If it is normal then...

Can you form it into small blocks, dry it and burn it in your fire place? (Assuming you have a fire place or wood stove?) Portland's a cold place right?

In terms of exposing the beer to oxygen and bacteria, it should be OK if it was fermenting that hard. The CO2 should have been pouring out of the carboy keeping everything at bay.
