Sounds reasonable, but do you have a reference?

comment Addition of powdered peanut butter
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.

comment Foam and bubbles
Pro tip: with a blow-off tube like this, make sure the bucket of water and the end of the blow off tube below the carboy, or at the same height. If it's above the carboy, you could end up siphoning whatever's in the bucket into the beer should the pressure in the carboy drop.

comment Expected priming time after 5 months in fridge?
@AnotherCompilerError a constant 20 C is what you're looking for. As brewchez points out, temperature swings don't make for happy yeast.
