comment Should I clean plastic fermenters wth PBW
My experience with plastic water bottles (that probably are PET) is that very hot water and OxiClean over night will sometimes cause a crack to form, making the bottle useless.

Although this research does not mention sodium percarbonate directly, it does say "limited resistance to hot water andwashing soda (sodium carbonate)." scribd.com/doc/104244759/…

comment How do I legally sell my home brew in the UK?
Based on existing questions that have not been disallowed, I'd say this one should be allowed too. It's a question that would come-up for many new homebrewers that might simply be looking for a way to offset the equipment costs and when they realize what a hassle it would be, they quickly move on.

comment Does Dry Hopping create a white film with bubbles?
I would agree with Denny for the most part, but one may wish to question the provenance of the hops used; current year vacuum sealed pellets, fine, two year old flower hops in a ziplock from a buddies skanky freezer, eh, not so certain.

comment Safely adding enzymes (e.g. Beano) to lower final gravity
I would try WLP099 before going the enzyme route. I had a beer go from 1.110 to 1.042 on WLP-004. I tried CBC-1, which did nothing. I pitched WLP-099 and it went to 1.008 (13.5% ABV barley wine).

comment Economics behind homebrewing?
I did a similar calculation, so I hope this act was not too 'sad'. Curious people are the most awesome. Mine didn't get too detailed...just total expense after 2 years brewing on my own equipment (inexpensive all grain equipment plus ingredients, obviously no labor charges, hehe). I converted my total production volume into the number of 22 oz 'bomber bottles' that would have made. It came out to about 75% of what I would have paid at the store. I'm sure it's better than that now (more time to amortize the equipment and a 'free' bag of grain).
