Too late, got them on glass already. will follow closely and store cold as soon as it is carbonated. Is pediococcus contaminated beer safe To drink? That looks nasty.

comment Considering adding Fresh Ginger to a 'Simply Ginger Beer' kit
@MereDevelopment Just mind it that the taste will likely be different from your 'ginger tea' to the actual beer due to the hop flavors, residual sugars, malt flavor, etc...

comment Is beer belly a myth or fact?
@brewchez I think this fit on the 'beer appreciation' category, as described in the faq. Granted, it doesn't have to do with brewing, but it is relevant if you are going to drink the beer you brew, just like questions on how to calculate the nutrition facts.

comment How to calculate the minimum vessel sizes for all grain brewing
My friend have a 33l kettle, the valve is installed 5cm from the bottom, which gives about 5l deadspace, looking back it could probably be installed lower since most of the time there is a good amount of beer left on top of the trub, but some brews produce a lot of trub and on these cases the extra centimeters come handy.

Awarding the bounty to MalFet as his answer was the closest to what I asked for. Mdma's answer was nevertheless very insightful on clarifying many issues on calculating these volumes.
