comment Maintaining Optimal Flavor in a Brown Ale
It was just an example I remembered reading about some time ago. It seemed like a strange additive, and it got me wondering what else might be used be commercial breweries. I've also read about uses of caramel coloring, high fructose corn syrup, MSG, etc., in some of the lower quality beers.

comment Maintaining Optimal Flavor in a Brown Ale
Perhaps. While I don't consider New Castle Brown Ale to be a high quality beer, it always tastes the same to me, whenever I drink it and that's really what I'm trying to understand in terms of my homebrew beer. I suppose the reality could be that what I am tasting after 3 weeks of conditioning is the actual flavor of the beer, and what I've been tasting earlier in the process is something that hasn't quite finished conditioning.

It was more of an assumption and quite possibly incorrect. I suppose I am thinking along the lines of clarifying agents like Isinglass.

Great explanation, thanks. Do you have a formula for determining dilution volume?

I've been using plastic better bottles for primary and secondary fermentation since I started homebrewing and I have yet to get an infection...I am an over-sanitizer with a spray bottle in my holster at every step. Plastic bottles of soda or water should be more than sufficient for this, and I don't think you'll need to dump it out either unless you have the habit of sticking sharp things inside the plastic bottle prior to filling it with beer.
