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 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.

comment Force “bubblifying” with something other than CO2
I've poured sweetened/cooled heavy cream in to a whipped cream charger that used nitrous oxide, and also made the same recipe by just putting the same heavy cream in a bowl and beating it with the mixer. Tastes the same.

All those laws are only applicable if the intent is to inhale it. Using nitrous oxide in beer is no more illegal than canned whipped cream.

comment what could be going on? 1065 to 1010 in 3 days and a half
The optimal temperature range for that yeast is 68 to 72. I'm surprised it attenuated so fast, so far below it's optimal temperature.

comment Avoiding excessive soot on brew kettles
Right, you should only really need the soap if you're cooking over a wood fire; propane should just be adjusted.

I'm with brewchez 100%, but I'd toss every hose and racking cane and buy new today. c
