comment 5 or 6 Gallon Glass Carboy
@baka: Yeah it's not really a Burton Union, but that's what the article called it so that's what I used. But I've removed the phrase from the answer. I assume Brad Smith called it that because the effect is more like a Burton Union than a small blow-off tube to the top of a 6.5 gallon carboy.

comment Cleaning & sanitizing NPT and weldless fittings
OK, but does sanitizing a NPT connection require disassembly? Or can you just flush with PBW, hot water, and then Star San? By the time the wort reaches the outlet fitting of a plate chiller it will be well below 170 ˚F.

Good point about the heat, but please see my followup edit regarding other NPT fittings.

comment How do you label your bottles?
I do this. You can fit 3 short lines of text on those round labels, which I use for Date, Beer Name, and ABV. The 4-color packs are perfect, since I rarely have beers from more than 4 batches, so I just rotate the colors.

comment Can you use only malted wheat to brew?
@JeremyHolovacs: The Reinheitsgebot only allowed barley, hops, and water—not even yeast was a permitted ingredient. So virtually any beer made today would violate the standard, even with a small amount of wheat.
