Do people actually boil water in these? I just saw a picture of someone doing this.

Yea. They are borosilicate glass. You can boil and chill in them. They are great for making starters since the boiling sterilizes the inside.

You want to boil the DME. You're basically making a small low gravity beer.

I'm going to hire a hitman for my chem lab and loot all of these.

The hitman will also have to take care of ALF behind the counter, but then I'll be set for life.

Also, ALF is just reruns now, so how could it not be?

I would say more of a malt liquor, but that's just being picky on my part

Like flavor wise? Because most starters should be finishing more than around 5% if you making it between 1.030-1.040 like most recommend.

I was just being picky because since there is no hops it's not really beer.

but for all intents and purposes it is

flavorwise it would be more malt liquory.

you've inspired me to now drink my starters after refrigerating. it's alcohol! I've been decanting by pouring down the drain what was I thinking!
