comment What should I put in my swamp cooler water to retard growth of nasty things?
The mold is growing on the bucket itself, though, not on the towel.

comment What's a good small-batch fermentation vessel?
Is there more risk of contamination with a Mr. Beer fermenter?

I like this idea a lot because you'll have pretzels to eat with the beer.

That's actually just like a jug I already have. How much head space do you need to leave in it?

comment What's a good first equipment buy after a basic starter kit?
@Max I currently live in Florida, so this is probably an even more important investment for me. I miss my basement. :[

I realized that the temperature granularity wouldn't be that useful for the brewing, but would help with getting more exact gravity readings. I ended up buying this one for $20: ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=360395651395

I was actually planning on doing this already, but it's still a good suggestion.

Well then, guess I just need to find the space to put it.

comment Are there tools that can make the bottling process easier?
Do you wash the bottles in the dishwasher too, or just use it as a place to dry them? Could running the dishwasher with sanitizer instead of powder detergent be an option?

comment Racking question
@Pulsehead: That's probably right: for a siphon to work, one container needs to be higher than the other. Probably on...a rack!

Also, I just realized that I'm not sure what step you'd use the fridge and thermostat for. To keep the beer at a consistent temperature while it ferments, I assume?

Wow, fancy. I was gonna get a $10 dial thermometer, but this looks nice. Is the .1 degree granularity really necessary, though?

I wasn't saying that I'd need to bust open my piggy bank to afford a $10 autosiphon. At the same time, I wouldn't want to waste $10 on something that wasn't worth the money, especially if I could put that $10 towards something that would be a bigger help. The question isn't so much about the price as it is the price-to-benefit ratio.
