I smell it too. Perfectly normal, unless every bottle of starsan I've ever used has been bad. No worries - the important thing is that it doesn't have a taste.

I've never heard of oak smoked malt either. Did some googling - sounds really interesting, I'll have to check it out!

Did it once and won't ever do it again. There were still some pellet parts in suspension when I racked and they went into the keg. Had to deal with a clogged keg. Huge pain, not worth skipping the...

That. Personally, I'd avoid the secondary and bottle them separately so that you can compare the finished product.

I don't think high-anything is going to work in just four weeks. You'll probably do best with something with low alcohol and no strong flavors. Think session beers. A simple pale ale would work.

There's a risk of oxidation, depending on how you do it - pouring through a strainer would be problematic. And then there's always the risk of infection every time you transfer. Otherwise, I can't...

Yes you can. It needs to have been boiled and cooled. Personally, I wouldn't water it down though. I'd rather have a little less of a stronger beer than accidentally end up with something with no...

I've never experienced post-boil wort to be any indicator of the taste of the final product... It's always disgustingly sweet and intensely bitter, and I usually don't even bother tasting it. I...

A whole lot of people, including me, use the Bayou Classic SQ14. It's about $50, depending on where you get it, and fills most everyone's needs - It'll seat a keggle and can do 10-gallon batches.

I guess I'm worried about mold. If I were going to run beer through there, I'd be very sure that the inside was spotless.

I wouldn't want my beer to be running through my wort chiller. If I had a dedicated jockey box, as above, it might be fine, but I imagine the inside of my chiller is pretty nasty as it's hard to get...

Are you milling your grain near where you brew? Lactobacillus hides in grain husks and will definitely cause an infection if it's floating around. I'd even be careful about wearing the same clothes...

I've done batches of cider containing potassium sorbate on numerous occasions without any problems. With enough yeast, it should be fine. Sodium benzoate, on the other hand, will prevent...

Want? Cloudy?

I'd say start with yeast, but the beers you mention shouldn't be cloudy for the same reason that, say, a hefeweizen should be cloudy. So maybe it is protein haze. You could try a...

Good info - hadn't heard that before. Most of my beers tend to be below 1.070, so that might be why I haven't had any problems.

I typically have about a gallon of boil-off for a 60-minute boil, and lose about a half-gallon to trub in the fermentor. So I start with 6.5 pre-boil to end up with 5 going into the keg. Both of...
