comment How long to refrigerate yeast starter before pitching into wort?
Are you worried about skunking from sunlight? Skunking is caused by the interaction of hops and sunlight. IMO, people worry to much about it, as I take little care to avoid sunlight and have never made a skunked beer. Or perhaps I'm just less sensitive to that particular flavour. Anyway. if you don't add any hops to your starter, you don't need to worry about skunking. Or if you do add hops, you could always wrap the starter vessel with aluminum foil.

What sort of beer are you making? What's the starting gravity? What sort of grains or extract are you brewing from?

comment How to Compensate for Higher than Expected Extraction Efficiency
Dilution will also lower the overall bitterness of the beer, irrespective of the lower hop extraction. Not much you can do about that post-boil, but if you know ahead of time you can increase your hopping to offset.

comment New All Grain Setup
I've not been counting, but I must be at close to 100 batches with an 8 gallon aluminum pot, 70K BTU burner, and a cooler with a braided hose. It's low tech, but it makes great beer.

comment Is there a heath issue using Irish Moss aka Carrageenan in beer making?
Thanks for posing this question. In researching my answer, I've come to the conclusion that I'm better off leaving Irish moss out of my beers. There's a lot of scientific evidence pointing to a possible harmful effect, and I don't place much value on crystal clear beer.
