comment If a beer recipe calls for secondary fermentation, should I do it even though there are drawbacks?
No, precise temp control isn't necessary for crashing. Just put it somewhere cold, like a fridge.

comment How do I save yeast to be reused?
You pour off the beer on top before using the yeast. The dead yeast on the bottom is no problem. Just yesterday I made an IPA using a 2 1/2 month old slurry stored the way I describe. There's also this experiment proving the point....brulosophy.com/2015/08/24/…

comment How long must water be boiled to remove temporary hardness (bicarbonates)
It's not usually a good idea to try to emulate water form an area. almost every brewery adjusts and treats their water somehow, so knowing the water they start with is not necessarily as knowing the water they use.

comment I used too much malt. What should I do? Suggestions how to salvage?
Bubbles do not necessarily indicate fermetation. They simply indicate CO2 coming out of solution and there can be several reasons for that.

comment Where do I start reading?
I find homebrewtalk to be a cesspool of misinformation. I think the AHA discussion forum homebrewersassociation.org/forum/index.php has far better info and a friendlier atmosphere. Check 'em both and decide for yourself

comment Where do I start reading?
I say skip the Element series...not only is it not geared for a beginner, it's hardly even geared to homebrewers.

comment Racking flavour - too strong?
Have you tasted it yet? I haven't found priming with brown sugar to add any flavor at all.

jards, if that's the case, then I agree with you completely.
