If tasters struggled to identify how and which beers are different in the most extreme case, how would making the beers more similar yield better results? But, if you think your experiment would be...

I lived in an apartment and did all-grain on the stovetop. You just need two pots and a cooler mlt (or just a bag if you're doing BIAB). I think Blickmann systems are also needlessly overpriced....

The triple-decocted beer was described as less malty than the melanoidin malt beer. So if you want malty, don't expect a decoction to automatically give you that profile.

There was definitely a...

Well, I don't recommend fermenting 100% grapefruit juice. I think it's too acidic for the yeast to work happily. With staggered nutrient additions, it still threw a lot of sulfur. It's dissipated a...

I wanted to go with the largest conceivable difference in mashing to see if there really was a difference. Still, the beers were very similar, and a couple people mistakenly ID'd duplicates. I think...

I don't think what you're talking about is possible.

This is basically the method I use: http://www.maltosefalcons.com/tech/methode-champenoise-beer

I don't know how you'd apply that to a keg.

You should use a sanitizer solution. I wouldn't rely on steam alone to sanitize my bottles. You can make you own with bleach/water/vinegar or you can buy something like StarSan.

Probably an infection, or improperly mixed priming sugar. I'd revisit your sanitation at bottling time, and give the bottling bucket a swirl with a long spoon every 6 beers or so.

T-58 does a decent job with most Belgian styles. It's more peppery/clovey than Ardennes. It's my "house" Belgian strain, though I use Ardennes from time to time. Ferment it low (60*-ish)for cloves,...

It really depends how well you control your ferment temp, nutrition, yeast health, etc. I've had ciders that were great within a month, and some that didn't get good until they were 6 months old.
