Early in the fermentation, I wouldn't worry about introducing more oxygen. Especially with higher gravity beers, I will sometimes aerate a second time, 12 hours after pitching. I know this is a late...

Yeah, I wouldn't worry about mixing the two yeasts. I often use multiple strains to create a more complex flavor (if the beer benefits from that sort of thing). For future brews, I would always...

Just occurred to me that MBT (skunk molecule) is likely pretty volatile since it is noticed as an off-aroma, meaning that during the boil, any MBT formed is probably vaporized like DMS...but maybe...

I've had problems in the past with my airstone getting a little clogged after use in several batches - boiling it in a dilute vinegar solution has helped clear mine out.
Also, couldn't tell for sure...

What sort of carbonation can standard bottles (reused, regular weight bottles from beer I drink) take.
If I wanted to carbonate a beer with say...3.5 volumes, would they take it all right?
