After having amazing success the first time I used this method, I just had a bottle go KABOOM on me on my second go.

who do you plan guiding? People that have never brewed before, so that any kind of setup might be interesting? Or experienced brewers so that you'd like to get people doing elaborate stuff?

Amen.

I am a yeast biologist, but not an expert on brewing science (we use yeast for different purposes than brewing). But, what I know tells me:

repitch at bottling?

I have had my first attempt at a wild-yeast brew in the primary for 7 months now and am ready to bottle it. I'm not sure if I should pitch some yeast on it when I prime, just prime, or do neither and...

Safrole is not nearly as dangerous as you would think

First, let me state that I believe i am qualified to offer an opinion because I am a practicing biochemist and can more easily find and perhaps understand the data out there. However, I am not an...

the basic equation behind all of fermenting is:

Sugar --> ethanol + CO2.

Adding more sugar and letting the yeast eat it will result in more alcohol in the end. If you seal up the container and...

heh. If you guys think the attitude at Toronado is bad, you haven't A) been to toronado frequently enough and B) haven't been to some of the other SF bars I've visited.

opened my first brew tonight-- darn good!

We brewed a partial-mash old-style brown ale clone (think newcastle like), without a thermometer or hydrometer. In the primary for one week, secondary for two, and bottle for 3. It was our first ever...

I live less than a block from the course. I can verify that SFPD will inspect any floats and confiscate any kegs they find. However, they won't do a thing to you no matter how drunk or naked you are,...

I don't know anything about how yeast process extra iodine, but I would guess they have a way to render it inert/non harmful as long as they don't get exposed to too much at once. (the same way your...

In the reaction, riboflavin is acting as a catalyst, so it's not consumed, based on your post. So, FDA reportable/nutrient levels are not at all necessary- just a trace amount would be required since...

There should be plenty of riboflavin in the grain kernels, though I'm not sure of the solubility (i.e. how much would come out in the boil). Edit: lots and lots of riboflavin in the hops too.
