I am a web master/developer during the day and at night I try to be the best husband.

Inbetween the above I like to read and play games (PC, XBOX, board and card) and listen to a wide variety of music. Brewing beer is something else that keeps me from getting into trouble.

comment Capper indents bottle cap. Is this ok?
If you are worried about leaking, drop one of your beers (cap facing upwards) in a bucket of water. Bubbles are bad. :)

comment Stalled Yeast Stirred
Oxidation can add a stale, paper or cardboard flavour and in some beers it increases the caramel flavour. Old Ales require a bit of oxidation.

comment Can I damage a grain mill by milling corn or sorghum?
The manufacturer replied that the mill will not be damaged, but that high water content may cause the rollers to get gummed up.

comment Gross layer of foam at the end of fermentation and aging
And remember there are about 220 BILLION yeast cells in a packet of dry yeast. Even if millions are dead, it is still a small amount.

comment Gross layer of foam at the end of fermentation and aging
The dry yeast companies recommend re-hydration prior to pitching. It is very simple (Assuming you use 11g of dry yeast). Boil 200ml of water. Add yeast nutrient to boil if you have any. Pour about 110ml of the boiling water in a flask and cover with foil. Allow to cool to room temp. Pour the yeast onto the water. DO NOT STIR. Leave the mix for 15 minutes. Slowly (As not to spill) rotate the flask so that all the yeast is nice and wet. Leave for an hour. Pitch when you are ready.

Considering he bottle conditions where will still be some active yeast in the bottle @ChrisMarasti-Georg. You are correct on the time delay. I did not think of that! :P

comment Determining the amount of herbs to use
I did the cold brew, but the amount I used was less than your recommendation. I will re-brew the tea as the first was weak (2 tbsp per 500ml).
