comment Can I use liquid nitrogen to cool my wort?
More information about no chilling at: aussiehomebrewer.com/forum/… . There are some things to keep in mind when going down that route (such as timings of hop additions) and it may not be the most ideal way of chilling, but it is certainly possible to brew award-winning beers using this method.

comment Can I use liquid nitrogen to cool my wort?
I understand the potential for worry about water consumption, but I would be surprised if the amout of water used to generate the energy that goes into the process of obtaining liquid nitrogen would be any less! Never mind the hazards of handling liquid nitrogen. I would much sooner use the "no-chill" method, or look at ways to reclaim and reuse the water from chilling.

comment How do you harvest yeast from a commercial beer?
In addition to making sure there's yeast to capture, also realise that some beers are filtered prior to bottle conditioning and primed with a different yeast (eg, a more flocculant yeast), so make sure you know exactly which yeast you're harvesting!
