    My first better bottle complaint

    Better Bottles have a domed bottom (punt?) that traps quite a bit of air when lowered into a water bath. I'll bet you could use a piece of tubing underneath the bottle to vent that air out and it would settle down. I haven't tried it but seems like it might work.

    Hi adarelme. It's still 7.9% whether you put it in a 12oz or 22oz bottle. There is more alcohol in the 22oz bottle but the percentage per ounce is the same. It's like buying liquor. You can 90 proof whiskey in a pint or a 1.75 liter bottle. Same alcohol per ounce, just a lot more ounces...

    Good going out of business sale...

    For what it's worth, I placed an order immediately after seeing the post and it has shipped. There were two items in my order that were sold out (Montrachet yeast and some Irish moss) and I was advised and was not charged for them. The shipping was charged for the amount that showed on the web...

    Long lost extract Kit??

    I agree. Don't pitch it without at least giving it a try. It may not be as good as it could have been but you might be surprised. I would recommend using fresh yeast though. Just my 2cents.
