    Stored grain accidentally heated up.

    I wouldn’t be, truck trailers and rail cars can easily get that hot inside most of the country most of the year so I’d bet that many folks sacks of grains have seen those temps before since they are shipped around the country in them. Now long term storage at those temps would be a problem.

    1.144: is this just a bad idea?

    Have I messed up?

    Empty CO2 - Is my beer going to go bad?

    Canadian Bacon

    That looks great, I’ve made cured bacon many times, and like DBhomebrew, I have always used Meathead’s (at amazingribs) method. Works great, the Goldilocks cure, neither too little nor too much.

    Virginia Equipment for sale Northern VA

    I suppose they are non-ported then. Better bottles come in two versions, one with just the opening in the neck at the top and another version that has a second opening on the side wall near the bottom. Check their website if you want to know more.
