Compressed air in cooled wort?

I was brewing last night and near the end of the boil I noticed that my Therminator outlet hose had gotten too close to the burner and had melted. I scrambled around to find a replacement hose and...

No harm will come from waiting, so it's not bad advice, but I've brewed milk stouts before and they all finish high. Of course it depends on a lot of variables like yeast strain, yeast health, yeast...

milk stouts are suppose to finish high - if the hydrometer hasn't moved in a couple days then it's fine to bottle - especially if it's fermented for 3+ weeks

Interesting....

I have never had a beer finish below 1.011, with 1.014-1.017 or so being pretty average for around a 5% beer. Everything I use is calibrated, and I have always mashed out (both...

I would sanitize between each batch. The longer you handle equipment the more chance for bad stuff, plus you would be mixing yeasts (unless they all use the same yeast strain).
