I wasn't that big on Voyager. TNG and DS9 though- awesome.

I'm not afraid of a cloudy hefe. I'd give it a week at most in the secondary and then package that thing. (For future reference, doing a secondary on a hefe is, IMHO, not really worth the infection...

I have BeerSmith on my MacBook and my Galaxy Note 3 and I usually opt for the mobile version even if my laptop is near by. It's a well made app and does what I need it to. YMMV.

I have some blue bottles and I've never had skunking issues with them. Then again, I've only used them on wheat bears and APAs, never on anything I intended to age for any length of time.

The only way I could use this in Texas is if I build a walk-in fermentation chamber/beer cellar. I don't have the cash for that kind of project.

So long as you don't do secondary fermentations, you are golden. No need to buy anything.

You can buy 3 gallon/12liter better bottles or Spidel fermenters if you want to secondary.
