comment What books would help me improve at recipe creation?
I can really appreciate what you're saying, the few times I've modified a recipe that I've brewed multiple times, it's helped tremendously. Of course the obvious other side of this is that I don't want 10 gallons of headless pale ale because I removed crystal malt to give it a lighter color (been there).

If my friend didn't already own it, I wouldn't have known BLAM = Brew Like a Monk, but excellent recommendations!

+1 for link to great review. Are there any highlights specific to you? Or is this more like a Bible for brewers? Also, Denny, are there any published books more up to date, or would you just advise supplementing with some information on newer ingredients?

Not meaning to be rude, but is this not the same question you already asked, "Recapping my bottles..."?

comment How low can a beer's final gravity be?
I just reviewed my recipe and notes and realized my mash was lower than normal ~148F, so that's certainly in line with what Chris mentioned.

I just had the exact same thing happen with a Belgian Wit using Wyeast 3944, OG 1.046, FG 1.000 (as best I could read it). I was told by my LHBS owner that only bacteria could bring it down to 1.0, but it shows zero signs of infection, one of my best brews. Also, did you mean you wouldn't expect to see anything lower than 1.006?

comment Is primary fermentation finished?
I don't have enough confidence in the seals on the Mr. Beer keg to advise letting it go as long as in a carboy. Not advising you to worry (never worry), but definitely get the hydrometer.
