comment Any reason not to boil for longer?
Just found this article: books.google.com/… which mentions that Cantillon evaporate off a minimum of 2k gallons from 9.5k gallons of wort. "Traditional lambic brewers boil their wort for four to six hours. Aside from condensing the wort, it also helps extract more bitterness from hops and counteract the high protein levels brought in by unmalted wheat. Over the course of a long boil, proteins coagulate and drop out of suspension." This doesn't contradict your point at all, but it's an interesting perspective.

comment How to connect my immersion chiller to the faucet
As mentioned above, I was hoping to avoid having to go to a store in the hopes that they have the piece I need. I was hoping to find a way of identifying the part I need ahead of time.

@baka, I couldn't see those on the Home Depot website, did you just take your aerator in and match the threads?

Yep, that's the sort of thing I linked to in my original question. I was more looking for suggestions for how to get the right piece (as there are a number of different faucet thread dimensions, and I regularly see people complaining that the one-size-fits-all didn't).

comment Measuring yeast activity by collecting CO2
@Dale -- hadn't seen one that cheap, I might look into that. That flowmeter project looks interesting as well, I'm not sure if you'd really gain more my having the exact volume expelled rather than just the number of bubbles.

I'm thinking about methods that are more easily automatable than a gravity reading from a sample. Refractometers look expensive. The flow meter sounds interesting though, do you have any links to writeups of that?
