If it consumes electricity, chances are good that I worked with it or at least know about it. SysAdmin and Programmer, worked with Basic and PHP as well as with Delphi. My current bread and butter is C# and JavaScript. I like to do Commodore 64 development as a hobby and dabbled in XNA for prototyping purposes.

I'm also on Twitter and I have a blog.

comment Why is there so much foam when I open the bottle?
Chilling down made a good difference for this batch. For the next batch I'll keep a closer eye on 1 and 2.

comment Low original and final gravity
Out of interest (since I'm a beginner and facing low gravity): Why is there no way to have 1.033 gravity from 8lbs extract and 5 gallons wort?

@ChrisPlaisier Original Gravity was lower than expected (I think 1047 instead of 1062), Final Gravity was 1011.

I put 16 oz Water/5oz sugar to a boil, put it at the bottom of the 5 gallon bottling bucket, added the beer from the fermentor, then gently stirred with the siphon. I'm afraid to stir too much because of Oxygen getting into it, but truth be told, I don't know if Oxygen during stirring is even a problem.

Thanks! Would #3 also cause a flat taste? I'm updating my question with a bit more information.

comment Recycling/Reusing Bottles?
@brewchez That's actually how it's done e.g. in Germany as well. The trucks that get the glass containers aren't gentle and do crush the glass. I do think it makes sense because you really, really can't know what's in those bottles. Hence my question if there is a safe way, I might actually look at ways to sterilize rather than just sanitize.
