I should have worded that better. If one were to use CO2 to push it around wouldn't there be a risk of overcarbing?

Dissolved carbon dioxide creates carbonic acid, not carboxylic.

It depends entirely on what the overall system pressure is. Something like a spunding valve will bleed any excess pressure (and thus CO2) out into the room.

I stand corrected -- the way to get carboxyic acid into your beer is to let it oxidize.

Hey MalFet, any tasting notes yet?
Proud of your work! Looking forward to finished product evaluations...

Definately the most interesting thread I've read on HBT for a while. I can see this becoming a new branch on the home brewer's
MacGuyver Tree of Brilliance & (not so brilliant).

Since the yeast beads will not add much flavor I was thinking about making beads of turbo yeast to add after the initial growth period of the primary bead-less yeast. Would this allow the flavors we want from the yeast plus rapid cleanup an maturation of the beer?

Edit: Just remembered turbo yeast wouldnt stop at the same point as the other yeast so it would probably end up dryer than desired.

For what it's worth, I don't actually agree with the idea that the use of beads removes all yeast character from the equation, and I think my experimental results demonstrate that. Certainly it's different than a baseline ferment, but it's not non-existent.

Didn't you have some hitch hikers in that batch? Have you reused the beads yet?

I've done a few parallel batches in different arrangements now, though nothing comprehensive yet. In my opinion, it's much too early to be making many conclusions.
