Hope you like cleaning your stove, then. An electric stove doesn't give you very quick control over the heat, and flasks like to become volcanoes.

I've added it to the primary, and you'd have to use a whole lot to "eliminate any chance of blow off". 17 drops plus temp control wasn't enough in my last batch, and that's 50% over the recommended...

Ignore the high pressure gauge, it's useless. All it will tell you is that you've got CO2 or not, it has nothing to do with the amount.

There's nothing belgian about 1554 or skinny dip at all. I wasn't thinking about the Explorer series. The Abbey is belgian, but I wasn't impressed. I haven't had the trippel.

The only problem I see there is the 50 ml to 2L step. That's one huge step and will stress out the yeast. Depending on who you listen to, steps should be 4, 8, or 10 times, not 40.

No, he's talking about gelatin. Glycerin is for freezing, which is a completely different process from making slants. Putting it in the microwave isn't the same as using a pressure cooker, either....

The gauge won't show anything until all of the liquid CO2 is gone. Don't count on the high pressure gauge for anything.

I guess I can't think of any commercial stouts without that roasty flavor, except maybe Guiness. They do it simply by not using much of anything.

Any darker roasted grain with the husk is going to have the flavor. I guess if you wanted to avoid it, the carafa special would be your best bet, but even it will have some.

If you can find someone to fill it, sure, but that won't be easy. They use different fittings. It is possible to convert a tank from O2 to CO2, the tank I'm using now was converted, so it's possible...

It'll be drinkable, you can't get more than ~100-120 IBU into a beer. If you want something less hoppy, you'll have to make a beer with very little hops and blend them.

Do you like any of the...

Completely different issue. With this comparison, you're talking about sucrose vs high fructose corn syrup. Beet vs cane sugar is sucrose vs sucrose.

Just make sure to disconnect the gas lines and not reconnect them until everything is chilled back down. The only problem I see is that you won't have cold beer when you get back.

MidCountry Malt Supply on the south side of Chicago, right off of I-80. Last time I picked up a few sacks, a sack of CMC Pale 2 row was ~$30.

I have. While they're interesting to hear, with such a small sample group and marginal variable control, they're statistically meaningless.
