comment Bottling homebrew late
Is it possible that this contamination could occur late in the fermentation? Perhaps my ferm locks aren't working correctly, and early fermentation is just keeping the CO2 going enough to prevent contamination.

comment How to add fruit to beer
Though I use strawberries in the boil (and this does add to the cloudiness and detracts from the flavor), I have noticed a significant decrease in fruit flavor after 2 months or so. My perspective is that especially for strawberries, you don't want to age it.

comment What are my options for brewing software?
Both I and a friend in my brew club both use BrewPal and are impressed with the quality, especially now that it allows you to customize grains.

@thebeav Do you have any links or more information on your setup? I'd be very interested, as the idea of going all electric is very tempting

Yes, which is what I have purchased. I do not yet have any sort of controller, which I take it is more important than I thought for the brew kettle. I imagine for the hot liquor tank, I'll be alright, since I'm just trying to heat water more conveniently than running in to the stove.
