Its done all the time, but on a Homebrew scale it can be difficult to work with in successive generations due to the fact that you can't control which yeast dominates and/or how many cells of each...

Max water flow, and stir the wort with the chiller itself. But that may or may not actually be feasible depending on your kettle setup. But you don't actually *need* to do this. Its always going...

I sometimes don't, mostly when I run out of the strainer bags. Never noticed any crazy effect.

Normally my procedure is to pump the beer from kettle to a sanitized bucket through a paint...

Sure, Northern Brewer when used by itself in large amounts is very woody. I once had an IPA made with all Spalt and it was not pleasant in the least.

I used to be anal about shooting some on there every time I disconnected, but now I don't even bother. I've never noticed any difference at all, but take that as anecdotal evidence.

5 minutes at 180 is almost assuredly enough. I once had an earwig pop in when I took the lid off at ~180 while actively recirculating and chilling and nothing happened.

Leave the refractometer in your house if the garage is very cold. Put the drops of wort onto the prism and then let it adjust for a few minutes before taking a reading. Refractometers like the...

I think you should consider consulting the probrewer.com forum for this kind of question. Its not something that homebrewers necessarily have any insight into.

It makes no sense from a common-sense perspective. For one, there's no money in doing that and two, there's no general trend towards restriction of home brewing. In fact, its the exact opposite,...

Sure, but its not going to make the beer taste like honey. Honey is extremely fermentable; the end result is very similar to just adding sugar.

You're not getting any feedback because nobody knows how much a gram weighs. (semi-serious :))

I've never actually seen that brand of malt anywhere.

You can often find organic base and crystal malts from Briess and Great Western, if you're looking for that.

If it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, its probably a duck. Conspiracy theory.

It simply doesn't make sense; it would cost more in lobbying costs and attorney's fees to get that kind of...

An all pilsener malt beer at 90 minutes of boiling should be very, very light. I rather wonder if there's some scorched or congealed wort in your valve or tubing somewhere (e.g. inside the threads...

I'm not sure I understand the purpose of trying to intentionally make something gross and then un-grossify it later. Even prison hooch has some real fruit in it.

ATF Ruling 94-3 applies to professional breweries. I would still tend to doubt the legality of it at home.

That said, I don't think you could actually fractionally freeze up to 40% ABV at home,...
