comment Adding Sugar to Secondary to Create a Layer of CO2?
I just noticed today (2 weeks in) that my 2 gallon jugs of beer are still cloudy because the yeast bed at the bottom keeps burping up CO2. A little chunk will rocket to the top, let out it's gas, then drift straight back down, leaving lots of straight little vertical trails. So I guess they're not done yet. So.. I think it would be safe to rack to a secondary, assuming the gravity is right, since there is still some slow yeast activity that should produce a small layer of CO2 on top in the secondary. Don't think I will add sugar. :)

Thanks for all the answers! I was mostly interested in using a secondary to help clear the beer, and I like the sanitized glass marbles idea. A while back I watched this couple on TintoTV use that method, so I may try that.

comment What can I do with my spent grain after mashing?
There's probably some good fiber to be had when making it into bread dough. I myself have thought more than once about trying a bowl of it with some milk and honey, like a hot breakfast cereal.. Haven't worked up the nerve to try it yet though. :)
