I see your point - beer doesn't spend enought time in the carboy for oxidation to be much of an issue. I did, however, lose a batch of wine to oxidization after I'd let the airlock dry out.

There is a layer of CO2 protecting your beer, but its not going to stay there without an airlock. If you only use foil, you're allowing the headspace to reach equilibrium with the surrounding...

IMO it sounds like a pretty bad idea. 1.070 is a pretty high gravity brew to consider re-using yeast, and that's if it was just off the primary, when the yeast were fresh.

Your yeast in secondary...

I used to use an IC but recently made the switch to a Shirron plate chiller and I couldn't be happier with it. Gravity feeding a 5 gallon batch is no problem and in the time it takes to rack into the...

The risk of infection isn't the only reason to chill your wort. By bringing the temp down as fast as possible, you're maximizing cold break, which crashes proteins out of solution in your wort,...

I would replace the airlocks with stoppers (just for the drive). You could even duct tape them in place to be sure they don't leak. Then find a good way to secure them in your car. I've buckled full...

I've also heard that a protein rest can increase your efficiency because your team of converting enzymes are coming up to mash temp gradually rather than all at once.

So are there any down sides...

Was the primary fermentation good and robust? If not, this late fermentation could be a result of infection. If it was robust,...

The ball valve can handle the hot water better, plus, you don't want to have to mash your thumb down to hold open a valve that's draining 170 degree water. Too burny. And you can control the rate of...

It was my fault. The holes I drilled in it were just too small. The grain husks must have covered it up and nothing couldflow through. Too bad I didn't figure that out until it was full of mash.

Some twisties accidentally contaminated my bottle supply also, and unfortunately I noticed a big difference. I use the red butterfly-style capper, not a bench capper, though. Flat beer sucks.
