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!

comment Modifying flavors during bottling?
When I read "sourness has almost disappeared", I was thinking the bit of aging cleaned-up the sour apple (acetaldehyde) of the 'green' beer.

comment Can the final gravity be multiplied by the ratio of beer to water?
If I HAD more beer! It was quite stupid of me, but I only realized it after I sealed the last bottle. But glad to know the idea in the question is valid. BTW, I do chunk the hydrometer reading with temp into Dave's dreaded calculator to normalize for temperature, and have gently weighted my hydrometer and tested with distilled water.

comment Are plastic fizzy-drink bottles an acceptable substitute for glass bottles?
If you wonder if the cap is leaking, you can take a balloon and stretch it over the whole cap and neck. I have re-used the caps that came on 3 liter soda bottles well. Other 38mm caps fit, but can't always be counted upon. Polyseal caps have also been reliable for me.
