comment Temperature Swings While Bottle Conditioning/Carbonating
nope, stuck it in the freezer for 40 minutes, then left out for 10 so it wasn't ice cold. probably served at around 40 degrees.

comment May be too much carbonation on the way
@mdma I wasn't aware that this site required me to 'accept' answers, but per your request, I have gone to my threads and done so.

comment May be too much carbonation on the way
@brewchez, yeah it was a stretch. Added 12oz pureed fresh figs to the last 5 minutes of the boil. Would have probably made more sense to add to the secondary, particularly since the style is sometimes served with a fruit syrup. The final product is a bit cidery, but very drinkable and very interesting. Going to take some to my homebrew meeting this sunday and get some non-biased reviews....

comment Do I truly need a wort chiller?
@ Jason V, the Shirron I have can probably do the same in about 10 minutes, but I have only used it once. Not sure if it is TOTALLY worth it based on cleaning of the shirron, hooking up hoses, march pump issues, etc. I like to do everything possible to maximize 'time spent brewing:beer made' ratio, but can't tell any taste benefit from more rapid cooling. @ brewchez, are you actually running your wort through the IC submersed in a water bath (like a pre-chiller), or cold water through it?
