comment Yeast harvesting
wow, sorry buddy! Harsh down vote. (PS: The canned wort starters are a bit cheaper then buying the DME for the above answer's procedures.)

comment Will bitterness from a flameout coffee addition fade with age?
I have a similar brew sitting in my basement "waiting" to get better! It was an experiment in brewing with coffee and I added too much "brewed" coffee. The flavour has mellowed slightly over 6-8 months, however that harsh bitter taste still persists. I'm hoping more time might help! Next time I will cold steep only.

comment How do you harvest yeast from a commercial beer?
If you know someone who's into microbiology, they could culture the yeast strain. Provided there is any yeast to culture. Only a tiny amount of yeast (smaller then a water droplet) is needed.

comment Can I ferment mead without campden tablets?
You're saying "sterilized" however I think you're meaning sanitized. Those words may be similar but their meanings are drastically different. Sterilization is not possible for most home brewers, or necessary. Sterilization can generally only be achieved with the use of an autoclave and certainly not with a product such as Star San. Sanitation is what your achieving (destruction of 99% of viables).

comment Should the starter volume be included in the overall batch size?
It's not a "trick" for starters, but if I could say, from experience, keep that Saison HOT!!! And don't be surprised if it stalls out for a week for two half way through fermentation (depending on the year you're using)!

comment What can I substitute for Carabelge?
I can not say about the Carabelge, but I've been very happy with the Saisons I've brewed that contain Munich. I typically use 500g, however I've never brewed a Saison with Munich and Vienna (FYI)

comment a few questions about using carbonation stones
If you know anyone who works at a hospital or pharmaceutical company, you might be able to get, medical/ pharma grade, true, silicone tubing from them. It's the highest quality tubing you can use in my opinion. Microbial and odor resistant, and no leeching of any kind. Good luck finding it ANYWHERE for sale!
