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!

Lukers...also google tap-a-draft as an option.

comment Kegging and less-than-keg-sized batches
If you are habitually running into this problem, you could invest in a tap-a-draft or find a miller home draft (if they are still selling them in your area) and pour out the 'beer'. These are ^ ^π six liter bottles/kegs that last as long as a 'real' keg.

comment How to identify a brett contamination
agreed on contamination vs infection and updated the question. Several folks tonight tried it and got no indication of brett, but the question still might be worth exploring.

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.
