    Should WLP007 look like this?

    Big cloudy bubbles look normal? I must be crazy.

    Should WLP007 look like this?

    I think my starter has picked up an infection. The last beer I made with this yeast had an infection, but I thought it wasn't related to the starter. Can anyone confirm?

    Idylis 5.0 Keezer Build

    Looks great! Keep us up to date on progress. Also, nice forward thinking on making the freezer part of the bar extra wide.

    Pre or Post Boil Original Gravity (big difference)

    The main reason people use pre-boil gravity is to get an idea of what their efficiency is before their brew-day is over, or to see if they 'hit their numbers'. Post-boil is the more important number, which you use (along with the final gravity) to calculate ABV. Nailing your recipe numbers...

    Glad to hear it. Everything wet well and it's fermenting nicely in my basement. AG recipe still incoming, I promise.

    New from the U.P. of Michigan, eh!

    Welcome to the forum! (Go Buckeyes!) Keep an eye out for another one of your kind that lurks around here. She even has a few (a lot) of mediocre (incredibly well regarded) recipes floating around here. Enjoy!

    Mixed up gain. Now what?!

    So it could be Maris Otter or two row? Most likely the only person who will ever notice is you. It's not that they aren't different malts, but they are both base malts, and unless it's nearly 100% one or the other, it won't make a big difference to the average person.

    Blonde Ale Simple Blonde Ale (Extract)

    1 vial should be ok as long as the vial isn't too old. It it's over 3-4 months old you could consider making a small starter or making a 'vitality starter'

    Burner for BIAB with B/C 44-qt pot

    I have this: It's a smaller banjo-style burner and one of the more common burners out there. It's quiet, and heats 5 gallon batches in my 10 gallon kettle excellently. I used to have a good write-up on the 4-or-so different...

    Comparison of mash tun insulation methods

    You're on the right track, but I remember looking in an old thermo book and seeing that most foods (I may dig this out to check it) have a LOWER specific heat than water. Water is pretty awesome as far as specific heat is concerned. A reason for it to retain heat longer would be due to the...

    Comparison of mash tun insulation methods

    mmmmmmm, Hard Data. The best kind. Even better, your data was taken inside in (what I assume are) consistent conditions. I've been thinking of putting together a reflectix wrap for my 40qt kettle. Lower gravity beers lose quite a bit of temp over 60 minutes and I usually re-heat (while...
