    Ringwood Diacetyl rest

    I'm brewing ORfy's hobgoblin clone and used ringwood. It fermented out and I hit my FG. However it has a slightly buttery smell and taste. I know I need to do a diacetyl rest but I've come across a range of temps to bring it to. Joy of Homebrewing states that it should happen at 55-60...

    Failed yeast washing?

    I washed the yeast from my last batch......however I seem to have not done a very good job, got a lot of trub underneath the yeast. Is it ok to make a starter from the whole thing or should I try to get the clean yeast off the top somehow?

    Split boil cooling?

    Due to the inefficiency of my stove I have to do split boils or 2.5gal batches. I only have one big sink and can cool only one pot at a time. My pot is big enough to hold the full wort after it's been boiled, can I put the split boils in one pot and cool in the sink? Or would I be better off...

    Carbing to Style

    I've got a Brewer's best red ale that is about to be bottled in the next few days. I want to carb to style, I know some kits can over-carb. What style does red ale fall under? Amber ale? The tastybrew.com calculator does not have a category for that. Thanks! :mug:

    Did I kill my strip therm?

    I've been using a swamp cooler to keep my fermenting temps down, however the strip thermometer has been partially in the water. I went to pull it today to see what the temp was, and the part of it that had been in the water is now discolored, kind of a whitish film/discoloration of the strip...
