comment i want a keg cooler that is cheaper than kegerator
Craigslist is a great resource for a cheap fridge! I would suggest getting new beer lines though (if they are aren't new). hoses are a great place for unwanted contamination to hide and spoil your beer after you have put all that hard work into it!

comment What do you call additions after fermentation?
Or wet pitching for fresh ingredients. I dont see either of these taking off but I would be curious what other suggestions people could come up with. It would be exciting if you were the one to start the conversation and this community could change the world!... of homebrewing!... specifically adding stuff post fermentation...

comment If oxygen is important mostly during the lag phase why not pre-oxygenate the yeast pitch prior to inoculation?
I absolutely agree @DennyConn with your view on yeast phases. I am a student of the White and Zainasheff book and thats where the question come from. Rereading today for the zillionth time, page 66 paragraph 5 refers to cells needing oxygen in the lag phase to create sterols (amongst other things) which is critical for cell membrane permeability. So my thought is oxygenate the the yeast prior to pitch = safer more protected yeast... but the simple fact that all the cells aren't on the same "phase" at the same time answers the question.
