comment Maintaining Optimal Flavor in a Brown Ale
Sorry for all the simple answers but what about the "aging" of flavors? it seems quick to fade but I recently brewed a series of browns in tandem with another brewer using high percentages of certain brown/chocolate type malts and noticed somewhat expectedly a "smoothing" of flavor characteristics...?

This might be a postable question but wouldnt malt profiles and yeast choice effect the perception of oxidization?

Maybe its been overlooked or maybe I missed something but you could try a carbonated version next to a "degassed" version?!

comment Will Bacterial Iron affect my beer?
Walzen, I really appreciate the answer and the link looks like a great water chemistry tool! But I don't get my water from the city, (When I did our water was great and the city website updated its very in depth water report often) but like the very first line says I moved and now live on a well... check out this link en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_well

comment Looking to get a new grain mill and want some advice
I ended up with the Millars B3 and think it's just the bees knees. I way over thought this purchase, the exciting part is actually... having grains on hand and brewing whenever I want. Don't worry so much about the microscopic details and just buy a mill, thats my advice!

comment How should bulk grain be stored?
I too use an "air tight" dog food container but from Walmart. It has wheels a good seal and a tight latch, pet food containers are pricey but a little more "deluxe" for sure!
