Engineer by degree, but I code for a living. Recently switched to using a tablet for leisure internet, like this site, but the on-screen keyboard is horrible, so please forgive my missing letters and things!

Not sure if this should be a wiki, and if so, how to convert it.

comment Yeast , dead or alive?
you can pluck one healthy colony and ramp it to a pitchable amount of perfectly healthy yeast from a slant. It takes a bit of time, and most of us just leave it to the pros. But it's not out of reach to keep going 'forever' with the right techniques.

comment Apple juice for hard cider (UK)
if you guys have organic stuff, i'd start there... they usually leave out the preservatives. Just read the label. Ascorbic acid (vitamin c) is ok. Pasturised is ok.

comment Sanitization practices when dry hopping in a muslin bag
I've dry hopped no bag with whole and pellet, and racking was a pain for me, so I'm done with that. I would like to keep the question focused on with bag sanitation.

comment Sanitization practices when dry hopping in a muslin bag
This question is not about bag or no bag. I'm going to keep my secondary clean of gunk. If I want to get more hop character, that's just a recipe issue (add more).

comment Is iodophor ideal for rinse-less sanitization before bottling?
i'm sure that not all would agree with the word 'ideal'. It is one good solution that has advantages. But it's very similar to other no rinse sanitizers, such as StarSan. You might consider rewording the question. For instance 'a better alternative'.

comment How much water does a wort chiller use?
Drop a cheap 12 volt bilge pump in a cooler with fed with hose water at the start thru to your cleaning bin. Then switch to recirculating with ice at the end. This will save a lot of water.

comment Dry Hop Filtering and bottling
I'm doing something similar. But instead of fishing later, I use dental floss, then end of which is outside the carboy (the carboy topper still seals fine)

comment How fast should I run water through my wort chiller?
To really answer your question, we'd need to know how much you value your time as compare to how much you value your water. The approved answer assumes your time is more valuable than your water. Don't underestimate agitating the chiller, which makes a big difference.

Right Dustin, but "No" is sort of a boring answer, hehe.
