    Dry Hopping Question...

    I'm sure it wasn't the hops but even if it was its an anomaly..There's breweries that have been dry hopping for some 150 years.

    Better Bottle Blues

    $15 is silly. I payed $22 for the BB and $1.79 for the stopper.

    Oxygen "Absorbing" Caps

    +1 I sanitize my caps. Proof that beer can get infected while bottling my last batch I ran out of sanitized bottles so I took 1 bottle that was clean and rinsed but not sanitized and filled it, sure enough that 1 bottle was a gusher and all the rest weren't. It's such an easy thing to do why...

    Better Bottle Blues

    Suckback is really the only legitimate complaint with BB and it's so trivial. Just remove the airlock when moving, no big whoop.

    Propane burner benefits

    Yeah that's struggling. I mash and sparge on an electric stove and it takes less than 30minutes for 2-3 gallons to reach 185F. I think because I have a pot with a sandwhiched bottom (ss/aluminum/copper) that it works really well.

    Propane burner benefits

    The Grape and Granary sells this one which looks exactly like mine and they rate it "up to 150,00BTUs" (fwiw)

    Amarillo vs. Centennial

    I think Cascade is more like Centennial than Amarillo is. Simcoe and Amarillo is a great combo... Amarillo to me is more pineapple. I've bittered with simcoe, then flavor/aroma amarillo then dryhop both simcoe/amarillo with great success.

    ESB first Partial Mash recipe

    whats the og 1.055 or so? That may be too much toasted malt, 2lbs of what is it amber? I'd do 2lbs of Marris Otter instead maybe and/or knock the toasted back to 10%.

    Dry Hopping Question...

    All I do is clean and sanitize the bag the hops are in before opening and removing with gloved hands. THe hops themselves aren't a worry but depending on where the bags have been, you never know. I rinse the bag with water and spritz it with starsan.

    Glass Carboy: Does it need to be covered?

    I cover mine with a black tshirt. I keep mine in a closet and to check how much light was getting in I got in the closet and closed the door. I could see from the little bit of light coming through the bottom so I put some foam on the bottom and now inside is pitch black. I still cover it...

    Selling recipes

    I can't see why someone who brews professionally would buy someone elses recipe...How much would you pay for Anchor's Steam recipe? 2row and Northern brewer hops, that'll be $100 please. :D

    Are lagers more "refreshing" than ales?

    The difference is, DRINKABILITY...lol. I'll say this, on a hot ass summer day I aint drinking a 9% Russian Imperial Stout but a lager or a light session ale.

    How long does liquid yeast last?

    my last batch was 2months past the Wyeast 'best by' date and it was fine...Make a starter for sure if in doubt.

    ^^^yeah just turn the heat up lol...It will be ok. I would boil for at least 90 minutes though. I've made beer on my BBQ grill which barely managed a simmer...You can cover it say 50% for the first 1/2 hour or so as long as you keep it uncovered for the last 30 minutes.

    Question about S-04

    The only ale I would use 05 over 04 would be a West Coast APA like Sierra Nevada but, even that I'd rather use the East Coast Ale.

    I'm all for brown carboys! They would cost probably $100.
