No need to pitch. Just add priming solution and bottle. There are still plenty of yeast in there- they're just asleep. A little priming sugar will be like the smell of frying bacon for them- they'll...

Build your own for about 1/2 the price of buying one. Make a coil (lots of info out there on the details of the how-to), slip silicone tubing right over the inlet and outlet ends, and secure with a...

There are no inherent downsides to well water in general- it just depends on the mineral content. My well water is great for drinking, but I don't use it for brewing because it has a high iron...

Splashing is okay pre-fermentation, as in while transferring to the fermenter, which is what I assume you mean. In fact, it will help to aerate/oxygenate the wort, which is good for your little...

Exactly. And that's the point of the research- that under "normal" conditions, nothing harmful is going to infect beer, and that fermentation can in fact make water of suspect quality potable. It's...

No, he wanted to do a taste test, but apparently the folks in the biology lab he was using get all weird about people drinking stuff that's been used in pathogen experiments.

"Nothing that can hurt you can live in beer"- Confirmed!

We've all heard it and read it, many of us have said it ourselves- your infected beer will not hurt you, as nothing pathogenic can live in beer. But I have never seen any hard data to back this up.

I'd say just leave it on and have it as a dedicated blow-off rig. That's what I do. Airlocks are cheap- just buy a couple more for "regular" use.

Nodding Head, on Sansom between 15th and 16th, has good food and great beer. And they do a killer brunch (with some interesting Bloody Marys!) if you are so inclined. The breakfast burger is amazing.

In my line of work, I've become pretty familiar with the effects of dehydration, and I'd agree that that's what you were experiencing. Next time just drink a glass of water before you go to bed and...

I've never used Wyeast 1968, but I think it's basically the same strain as White Labs WLP002, which is really "chunky" like that because it floccs so well. Actually so well that it's good you have a...

I used some of SWMBO's nail polish to mark graduations on my carboys. Unless you're in the habit of cleaning your brewing equipment with acetone, it won't come off any time soon.

You really don't need to use a secondary. Many, if not most, of us no longer secondary unless adding fruit, wood chips, etc. I leave all my beers in the fermenter ("primary") for at least 3 weeks,...

We use the sand method in the lab to clean out archaeologically-recovered bottles. Works great- even on bottles that have been in the ground for 100+ years!
