DRY HOPPING

I normally skip the zero minute addition in favor of dry hops. Sometimes if I'm feeling generous, I'll also add zero minute additions, but if I had only two ounces left and I had to...

You should use the full amount of sugar. There's always some dissolved CO2 in there at bottling time.

I wouldn't add more yeast. Unless you're ready to brew right now, I'd wait and see. It should get started eventually. And obviously next time make a starter.

How do you hold 110? I am thinking a 60watt bulb on a temperature controller in the oven. But maybe that's overkill?

The one she made is basically still liquid. I think it never hit 180 and then was too cool after that. I will try again today.

As far as I can tell, making yogurt is very simple.

1. Heat milk to 180, hold for ~15 minutes to kill nasties
2. Cool milk to 110, just open and uncovered is OK
3. Pitch 1-2 TBSP active yogurt...

Give it time. It hasn't even been in the bottle for two weeks yet. It should continue to develop and within a few weeks should settle down.

I'll say it: "RDWHAHB"

My hose clamps on the cold water inlet to my immersion chiller always take some noodling to get them to stop leaking. Not ideal, but prolly OK. Live and learn.
