There's still no decent way to bottle with twist off bottles. Your best bet would be to use a bench style bottle capper and using standard crown caps. Twist off bottles are a bit on the weaker side...

Nah I wouldn't worry about it. I've brewed a few sours before and always just used the same stuff.

Are you sure you even need to? That should be like 36 SRM or so, which is perfectly within the color range of a dry stout. It's on the upper edge going by the BJCP guidelines.

Chances are it won't go any lower if the gravity was the same from Wednesday until today. Your apparent attenuation is on the low side for the yeast but that could be due to a number of things. I'm...

Looks good overall but you don't need to wait an hour after adding your sparge water. I let the sparge water sit for 10min during a batch sparge before draining into the kettle. Other than that,...

Yes, fermentation could still be taking place even without any airlock activity. Measuring with a hydrometer is the only surefire way to know fermentation has finished.

Well, the lack of airlock activity isn't necessarily an indicator of no fermentation. The gas could be escaping from a small leak elsewhere. Are you able to pull any mead out and check it with a...

They're totally fine. Shouldn't be any effect on taste either unless there was a bunch of solution sitting in the bottom of the bottles when they were filled. If they were drained then I wouldn't...

Sounds to me like it will be perfectly alright. I'm sure there's still plenty of yeast in there, and while 9.5% is high I don't think it will be too high to allow bottle conditioning. I've bottled...

I actually don't think it should be that big of a difference in gravity. Corn sugar only adds a few extra gravity points than candy sugar by weight, all other things being equal. I'd guess the...
