comment Vacuum sealing harvested yeast
@Scott - Without oxygen at least mold won't develop, that would improve storage prospects. But the question is, would that allow better conditions for other nasties to develop?

comment Vacuum sealing harvested yeast
@Scott Why so? The process is the same for regular harvesting + a 10 seconds extra to pump the air out of of the glass container... If that increases the potential storage time I think It could be worth it

comment Consequences of infection in a beer?
So, what do you do with your vat of vinegar once you get it? You warn against taste-test... Mix with water to use?

I think he means he let it soak in secondary fermentation.

comment Oh… my back… (how do I brew with less heavy lifting?)
@MichaelMus Get a long hose and you are good to go with the immersion chiller! Also, you can mash on the burner without having to switch to BIAB.

comment How to Cold Crash an Imperial Stout?
@Conor Must correct myself here, a few days ago I heard about the 'Black Ale' style, which seems to be a porter/stout with a large charge of hops. See my edited answer for details.

comment How can I fix low starting gravity?
@DennyConn Correct, I overlooked the batch sparge part. Just for the record, 'traditional' batch sparging doesn't require letting the wort sit any longer than the time it takes for the solids to fall back in after stirring (mash is already over, go ahead and drain it).

And regarding your lower efficiency, what sort of equipment you use on your batch sparging? A manifold? False botton? Bazooka Screen?
