comment will i end up with flat beer?
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.

comment How low can a beer's final gravity be?
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.

For your Bourbon Vanilla Porter, when do you find the flavor to peak?

I can understand a flavor coming from fresh ingredients, that on their own exhibit rapid degradation fading, but why would bourbon flavor fade from beer, but not from bourbon?

comment What effect will doubling the yeast concentration have?
I re-read the article you linked to, and he also specifically mentions that increasing the pitching rate is done by commercial breweries to decrease total fermentation time. Way more complicated than I thought, and I knew it was complicated.
