My 5# reads 900 when full and warm, and 600 when it goes in the fridge. Might be best to take your tank and regulator back to the place you got if filled. They might check the regulator for you to...

+1.

Also, flowering/fruiting plants have different light spectrum/intensity requirements. Flowering plants need very intense light. Flourescents/incandescents wont's do the trick here.

Do you have a pump? You could recirc the cooled wort back to your kettle until you get to a temperature that you can go to your carboy with.

Amen.

Personally, the reason I started brewing was that I tired of paying $37.99 for a flat of garbage ('John Labatt's Blue, the good stuff' - what a crock). I've never really gotten off only...

The other possibility I have been investigating is my steam mashing. It's possible I'm locally overshooting my mash temp when hitting the MLT with steam via the manifold. Even though I stir...

When you plant them, use a large hole with a good mix of light soil. Maybe a mix of peat/manure/wormcastings/perlite/vermiculite. Also, use a bit of landscape fabric to keep the weeds down around it....

I'm pretty consistent about that. I use an RTD plus a lab thermometer and stir the mash every 15 min when I take my temp.

I think scaling all the malts is the way to go. What I'm going to do is side by side batches with base malt scaled and all malt scaled using US-56. That should give me some idea.

Not surprising, considering those are from last crop's slim pickings. Hopefully, it may get down to $2.00/oz bulk this year, although that may be really wishful thinking.

Leave them alone. They probably still function to a certain degree, but will most likely be the first to die. If they begin to change color, you can cut them off.

Don't get too wound up with individual leaves that have been damaged. They are most likely going to die off. The main thing is to make sure new leaves are being produced and that they are healthy.

Get yourselves some 35% (or stronger if you can find it) H2O2. I use the same scratched up buckets for wine for 4 years running without a problem.
