Would that translate to "end of the world?" I've never heard of it. Got to agree with Janx... that recipe does sound interesting. Is the original more like a wheat beer? You might want to...

What size is the conical Roger? Have you had a chance to use it. It looks like they greatly simplify that part of the brewing process.

I actually add an intermediate racking. When I'm down to about 10 or 12 bubbles a minute in the primary airlock, I rack to an intermediate carboy and let the primary fermentation finish. After that...

I like to time a batch for kegging right as I'm emptying one of the Corny's I use. I pop the cover, clean it, and rack right into the keg without having to sanitize it. The keg's cool from being in...

I've had a couple of yeast starters go bad. They had a odors that left no doubt that they had gone bad... very foul smell. As long as your batch smells ok, 99.9% chance it is.

They fall apart, spread out to cover the top of the beer, and then pretty much float on top. I leave mine in as long as the beer is in the secondary.. usually about 2 weeks.
