comment Why isn't my gravity increasing? Has fermentation stopped?
Okay! Good criticism! As I mentioned that has been my experience in the past, but you all make good points and I completely about primary fermentation and the use of a hydrometer. I brewed many, many kits before taking brewing seriously and I certainly found the above fermentation schedule to be adequate for those kits, however I agree that having and properly using a hydrometer is very essential to good quality brewing.

comment How Long Will a Keg Hold Carbonation if Disconnected from the CO2 Tank?
That is a great idea! Starsan is a little hard to come by in Canada, but it seems worth it to track it down. I usually rinse the soap and sanitize with iodine before using.

comment Salty Starter. From Gypsum?
PS: If your diluting your wort (ie: a starter), and your trying to hold as true as possible to your IBU calculations, and you'll have 2g of left over bittering hops in the bag, why not hop the starter at the same rate as the batch!!!

comment Salty Starter. From Gypsum?
OK thanks for the advice guys. Denny, I'm not exactly sure where I got those numbers from. I had done so many metric conversions that I must have made a mistake somewhere. I also had troubles finding what would be considered maximum amounts. I've adjusted my calculations and figured 0.263g/L will give me 62 mg/L calcium and 147 mg/L Sulfate. Added to my city water that should give me 83 mg/L calcium and 192 mg/L sulfate in 43.4L. For a 65 IBU beer (1:1 GU:BU) I figure it's a good start. I'll add more or less next time!
