comment Is there a limit to how many times you re-use bottles?
I wouldn't worry about thermally cycling glass - unless you're heating part of the bottle over a flame and keeping the other side cool, you shouldn't see stresses high enough to get near ultimate stress, and even if you were at 50% of ultimate stress, you'd have to go through 10^5 or 10^6 cycles before fracture.

comment Do some beers really require special bottles due to pressure?
absolutely. if you're going above 3.5 volumes carbonation, use the heavy bottles - either the champagne-style ones (although it's sometimes tough to find these with a standard cap) or the heavy swing-top 16-oz bottles.

comment will i end up with flat beer?
voted to close. if the answer wasn't thorough enough the first time around, please make a comment in that thread, and someone will inevitably elaborate on the answer. reasking the question isn't going to carbonate your beer.

comment How low can a beer's final gravity be?
Agreed. Starting at 1.066, 100% attenuation would end you at .984. That would, of course, imply infection.

comment 36 hours after pitching straight from the vial, no signs of fermentation, what now?
Just out of curiosity, where did you get the yeast and what kind was it? I ask because the Wyeast 2278 (Czech Pils) that I bought on Friday from the Brew Hut in Denver was also bad...
