Oh sure. I had a beer that had this really astringent funkiness to it that was not intended at all. It was so horrible I had to dump the whole batch. I ended up finding a bottle of it in the...

I was doing about 2 pints a night, but like other commenters, I also would like to keep the girth down and prevent myself from becoming a lookalike of Jaba the Hut. I limit myself to 12oz a night...

Nice...I'm not in Okinawa, but I remember Camp Schwab and the NTA very well. I'm sure it's challenging to get supplies over there, eh?

The best way to know for sure is to take a gravity reading. If you're at your target FG, then you're ready to bottle!

The Irish Moss does make a difference wrt proteins. If you didn't add it, they'll stay in suspension for awhile. Just keep in mind that in most cases, time clears all beers.

The crystal is 13% of your total weight of grains. It depends on what you like, but I think it's a little much. I made a beer once where I went overboard on the crystal. It was still drinkable,...

What fermentation temp were you shooting for? 65 isn't too bad for ale fermentation. First thing is to take a gravity reading to see how far off you are. It could be that you had a quick...

Yeah, if you're a hop head, I'd recommend 4x the dry hops for about 10-14 days.

To clarify, are you saying that you want to go straight from primary in the bucket to adding your priming sugar and bottling w/out racking it to another vessel?

Beersmith has a great feature where it specifies the mash tun capacity needed for the recipe. It's never let me down.

How much head space did you leave and did you keep it refrigerated? I'd imagine it would last a few days if you didn't leave too much head space on it.

+1 on David's reply. They won't make a difference. Ensure you're taking a reading at 60 degrees. Heat will drop the gravity.
