comment Is an immersion chiller really necessary?
How long does it take your ice bath to get it down to 65? That's the big question I have. My immersion chiller can get my wort to 80 in 5 to 10 minutes, it's getting it down that last 15 degrees to 65 that takes the bulk of the time.

comment What's a good “running” beer?
Yeah, they've been making this for almost 100 years in Bavaria for bikers in the Alps, they call it a Radler. They usually mix it with a lager though, and sometimes they'll use lemon-lime soda instead of lemonade. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radler

comment DIY Racking cane / Auto-siphon
@Jerry - You start the siphon by filling the tubing with water or sanitizer, then put one end in your beer and let the water/sanitizer out into a sink/waste pail, then let your beer into whatever you want. If you feel like living on the edge, you can rinse your mouth with vodka or mouthwash, then suck beer through the tube until siphoning begins. I've never used a pump.

comment DIY Racking cane / Auto-siphon
I agree, using copper or stainless pipe/tubing would be the best option.

Not the same question as yours, but some of the answers address the same issue: homebrew.stackexchange.com/questions/2211/…

comment What effect will doubling the yeast concentration have?
@drj - There's a balance you have to strike in cell count, you don't want too much, nor do you want to little. Regarding the smack-pack, I've seen Wyeast microbiologist Greg Doss mention in a video that the yeast doesn't actually increase in cell count, its metabolism just gets a kick-start so it's not dormant when you pitch it.
