Oh boy - be careful when you bottle. If you just added the honey and brown sugar, the yeast will consume those. You should wait for it to do so before adding priming sugar, otherwise you might end...

It's a lager, so you need to let it go. By nature they take way longer than ales due to the temperature at which they ferment.

They're known as yeast rafts - and they're normal. Let the beer sit for another week or two.

I would back up a little and rework the grain bill by dropping the crystal to maybe one pound. Two pounds works out to over 15% crystal malt - a bit much in an IPA for my taste. You don't have to...

I crash cool one day before kegging at 35. Keg the next day with a little gelatin. I set the PSI to about 12, while the keg is still cold, and roll it around for 15 - 20 minutes, or as long as it...

Troegs' Nugget Nectar. It usually prices in the $12-$14 /6pack range, but I bought a couple of pounds of Nugget hops at around $8/lb - much much better price point.

A couple of things:

First, congrats on the new hobby!

Second, with an OG of 1045, I'd say this is more in the range of a pale ale than an IPA - but not to worry, that's ok too, you can dry...

If you've dry hopped that IPA heavily and it's over 7% I would not only wash your yeast, but make a starter from it as well. I would be concerned that the yeast might be a little stressed from such...

As far as I know, you should be ok within the first 12 to 24 hours. Here is a link to White Labs explaining the yeast life cycle. http://www.whitelabs.com/beer/Yeast_Life_Cycle.pdf

Wow - even if I agreed about giving her the brewery, no way I'd show her how to use it. That has nothing to do with "being a bigger man."

No - I assume you might have hard water then. A rinse in a vinegar solution should take care of that. I do get a film if I use washing soda to soak, which is just sodium carbonate (oxiclean is...

Simple question first . . . no difference between beet sugar and cane sugar.

Honey - you can use it, but I wouldn't. It is highly fermentable, so you wouldn't get much flavor at all if used for...

This makes sense too - in AG you're boiling down from 6 gallons to 5 gallons (roughly speaking), and in extract you might be boiling ~3 gallons? The important thing is that if you're not doing a...

What was your hop schedule? Is your recipe AG or extract/PM? I haven't seen the recipe, but that doesn't seem like a lot of hops for an IPA - I would expect more.

Hop flavor will diminish with...

The only toxins in beer would be the ones you deliberately put in there - none are produced or supported through the brewing procedure.
