What did you use to make this? Love the look, the comic book style is very visually appealing.

That is great, not to crap on this thread but any plans to do one like this for how to drink a bottle conditioned home brew? Something like
Wait three weeks+
Chill 24 to 48 hours
pour to a chilled glass, leave 1/2 inch of yeast at the bottom of the bottle
enjoy the handcrafted beer
return the bottle to the brewer.

Well, my starters sometimes take more than 24 hours to ferment out.

Also, can you really boil in an Erlenmeyer flask and then dunk it in ice water without it breaking?

Lots pitch at high krausen and don't wait to "ferment out".

Yes, you can boil and then cool in an Erlenmeyer. I usually let mine cool while I get the ice bath prepared so it is not actually boiling, but still plenty hot when it hits the ice water.

If your fermenting your starter at 70-75 degrees, the bulk of the growth should be complete within 24 hours.

Yep, you can take an Erlenmeyer flask right off the flames and dunk it in an ice bath, I do it all the time. Although I'll admit, I was a little nervous the first time I did it.

Hey, +1 for the great comic!

It would be really awesome to see more of these, but dealing with different aspects of brewing. Would be the best part of the Sunday comics, IMO.
