    best way to store brews

    Cool and dark is the way to go. I have shelves in my basement away from natural light that stores all my brews.

    bottle caps are bulging

    Yes they do explode and the glass shrapnel can imbed itself inches into your skin, face, or walls. It is NOT something you want to mess with.

    Size of Primary Fermentation Bucket

    I agree with Ischiavo, split between two bucket for best results. Also, loose lid is fine and will not allow anything bad to get in. Primaries do not have to be air tight for good beer.

    Hop seeds viable?

    They will be viable but may not be the right sex. You want the female plants only and with seeds you have a 50/50 chance that they will be male. If you are growing just for hops, buy starts. If you want to grow them for decoration (like that's going to happen around here) you can use the seeds.

    Broke off some white shoots after transplanting

    It will be fine. Hops are basically weeds and its really hard to hurt them.

    Priming with DME

    The downside to using DME is that it takes longer to carbonate your beer. There really isn't any upside to using DME. Because of the small amount used, you get no flavors from using sugar.

    Brewing tank?

    You sure talk American for being from England. I can't help but be a little suspicious about your questions. Larger fermenter can be purchased at any homebrew store along with accessories.

    Papaya Cider?

    Don't know why it wouldn't work just fine. I'm not sure the sugar content of papaya but there has to be some. I think it will be like making pear cider, lots of particulates to settle out. You might want to consider adding some apple juice to thin the juice out a bit. I found that out when...

    I just pour the whole thing in through a funnel. I stopped filtering about 5 years ago because it's a PITA.

    Homebrew Ethics: WIFE DUMPED MY BREW!

    Using your own analogy, it was just a SLICE of pot roast. You guest didn't like it so your wife disposed of it and got him a sandwich. Would you still be mad at her for not slapping the slice on your plate instead of tossing it?
