I brewed a red IPA which had what one taster described as a "celery" flavor--I think the ferment started out too warm. It was Wyeast 1056. Dry-hopped with Amarillo. Not what I would describe as...

Why not leave out the CaCl2? Chemically, at least, it is pretty close to NaCl, which is table salt. I would leave it out & add a minimal amount (like 1/2 tsp) gypsum to the mash.

Probly gonna be closer to 5.5%, assuming that OG is accurate. Keeping it in primary for another week is fine.

I like Wyeast 1028 for a porter, but 1968 is also good. I think Great Lakes uses 1028 for Edmund Fitzgerald.

Ivan - I would argue that your chemistry teacher didn't sufficiently understand the science involved. Or at least didn't put it into practice.

I attempted a Stone Levitation clone--got some diacetyl, but probably underpitched (don't know how fresh the vial was, it seemed kind of clumped together & took about 24 hr. to start). It's supposed...

doublehaul-usually in decoctions you remove the thick part of the mash & bring it to a boil. usually around a third of the volume, but that should be calculated from temperatures.

I agree that 10% sounds a little heavy on the wheat, but if you like that, go for it. Generally, all-grain brews don't need much help in head-retention, depending on yeast strain & mash temperature.

Sir-Hops-a-Lot: why not just mash higher, say 156? It will convert faster & you won't have to add malto-dextrin. I like a dryer beer myself.

"green" apple is usually associated with acetaldehyde, which is unlikely if it's been sitting for a year.

Also, I don't think you can judge carbonation (assuming you used priming sugar) in one...

I'm not sure you'd even need yeast nutrient for making cider, unless you're adding a bunch of sugar.

Might be more of an APA--I think some "hop shot" formulations suggest 1 ml = 10 IBU in 5 gallons of 1.050 wort: http://www.northernbrewer.com/shop/hopshot.html
But I'd give it a try.

I don't think you could get botulism, due to the alcohol presence (not the boiling, which doesn't kill spores).

Stratification's not a thing for sugars that are already dissolved. There may be some yeast globs at the bottom of the bottling bucket if you entrain them while racking.

I would expect a little lower than 1.060, depending on what grains were in your grain bill.
