    First time Pig Roast

    A buddy of mine and I are going to be roasting a 70-80 lb pig this weekend. It's not the first time either of us have been to a pig roast, but it will be the first time the two of us roast one ourselves. Any tips, tricks or warnings are welcome.

    Muntons 150?

    I ordered a bag of crystal 60 from the LHBS, but got a bag of Muntons 150. He says it's really Crystal 60, but they label it weird. Is it really crystal 60 or a substitute? . . Pilsner on the left. Crystal on the right.

    Homegrown coriander

    I transplanted some cilantro/coriander plants I got from the local nursery. Assuming it goes to seed should I try and harvest the coriander seeds green or dry? Any tips on preparing them for use in brewing? Witch other herbs, spices or plants used in beer can be homegrown?

    Sour cream cheese

    My neighbor made homemade cheese from sour cream years ago. I have since moved and would like to make some, but I'm not sure how to make it. IIRC the sour cream was put in cheese cloth, squeezed and hung for a few days. Does this sound right or am I missing something?

    Decoction question

    I am brewing an AHS Dunkelwiezen partial mash today and was wondering if a single decoction to reach mash out would be worth the extra effort. Or are decoction strictly for all grain?

    Party pig priming amount question

    I have an IPA that is ready to bottle. Using tastybrew's calculator I come up with 3.1 ounces of corn sugar for a 4 gallon batch to get 2.3 volumes of CO2. How much less should I use for two party pigs instead of bottles? Will it carbonate any slower or faster than bottles?
