Ron Jeffries is a big fan of sugars. Listen to his interviews on Can You Brew It. The Bam recipe is great for low abv saison, albeit sugar free, but he talks about sugars a bit in the Madgruda...

You add gelatin to cold beer and that's it. You don't have to add anything else and I don't think you want to take it out of the fridge until it's cleared. I also have my doubts that gelatin will be...

Are you asking how much headspace you need to keep your beer from overflowing when it ferments? That will vary greatly depending on the yeast, wort, temperature, and other factors. I try and get...

You can add the pellets directly, but you will need to use something on your siphon to strain them out. Most people use a one gallon paint strainer bag tied on with fishing line or similar.

What exactly are you asking? The bucket beer obviously has wild yeast &/or bacteria in it and is also getting a ton of oxygen, maybe just from being in a bucket or the bucket has a bad seal. The bugs...

To me it looks like transferring the wort kicked the yeast up and restarted your stuck ferment. If it starts to develop a film or snot bubbles, you've got a problem.

I let five gallons from a club pressing ferment on it's own last year and will do more this year. From what I've read, apples seem to be the most reliably 'self fermenting' fruit there is. No need to...

I think all the gelatin drops through the beer, leaving none in final product, or at least that's what you should tell her.

As Gus_13 said, JP dregs are fast and tend to take over. Some of their beers are only in a wood for a couple weeks so they're a good choice for something you're trying to turn around fast. Assuming...

I don't think I've heard anyone call it clean or boring. It just doesn't taste good. The stone fruit and clove thing isn't what I want in a saison.
