I would crash it now. I typically only let my starters run for 18-24 hours (until about high krausen), although sometimes longer if I haven't noticed any activity. You don't really want your starter...

I'd say go for it, I love using Maris Otter. Expect a little more of a biscuity/bready character in your beer.

Well according to MrMalty, it's about 1% viable. I would recommend starting with a fresh pack in this case.

For a 5 gallon batch your looking at about 6.5-7 gallons to start your boil, depending on your losses. So you want to have a big enough kettle to handle that plus some extra room to protect against a...

Seems normal to me. In my experience the beer always looks cloudy during fermentation, as it should since you have billions of yeasties running around in there. Yeast are also more active at higher...

It's all coming from the same place. The water temperature will depend on the ambient temperature outside, more specifically the temperature about 3ft below the ground where the pipe was laid.

As far as the strawberry's are concerned, make sure fermentation is done before adding them, otherwise some of the flavor/aroma will be lost. Depending on how much strawberry character your looking...

Yeah, I would wait a little longer than 27 hours before abandoning hope, give it at least 48. Was the starter showing signs of life? If so, you should be fine. Another possibility is the yeast going...

You don't want to use sugar for a yeast starter. The DME provides the yeast with necessary nutrients from the barley that the sugar does not have. A starter with cane sugar would do more harm than...

Could be an issue with not enough priming sugar. If your noticing some carbonation, then the yeast is alive and at 70-75F it should be fermenting whatever available sugars it can find.
