Doing an over-hopped Helles/German Pils cross (miscalculated IBUs...wups).

OG was 1.050. Plan was to pitch @68F and hold until fermentation started. Unfortunately, I was not able to cool down to...

Yes. The first version was a little heavy on the Munich, and too light on bittering hop addition. I would even suggest German Perle for bittering and using Tett/Hall for aroma/flavor. This is one of...

Depends on what you're making... If you're doing a stout at room temp (75ish) and age it at 85, you probably won't notice much difference.

Now, say youre doing a pilsner. You ferment at 48, then...

Haven't used either, however I have a couple of (hopefully) simple suggestions that may help.

Yesterday, had a homebrew buddy over, and we did similar batches with two different techniques simultaneously.

Just a side note, salt isn't always a bad thing...I've added sea salt to several brews (albeit in small quantities). Works great if you're doing a a corona clone (it's pretty good not skunked...)

The purpose of the salt is to allow you to add more ice without freezing your bath. Also, the addition of salt WILL lower the temp of the water, albeit a couple tenths of a degree.

Unfortunately, no. If verdigris is present but hidden inside the tube, there is not much a homebrewer can do to remove it. Never use acetic acid (vinegar) to clean your chiller, as this seems to be...
