comment Poor hop aroma for late addition hops
Then the only things I can think of is something mucky in the valves/chiller, or the water chemistry not being right.

comment Poor hop aroma for late addition hops
No, 20 minutes should be fine. I would check everything is cleaned out properly, I had lack or aroma issues when my valves & chiller was clogged up. Do you have any other off flavors/aromas?

The problem is probably happening when you chill. How do you chill? Have you checked all your valves and hoses?

Do you get any aroma from the fermentor? Do you use pure phosphoric acid? My understanding is that starsan is 15.8% phosphor. Do you manage your water chemistry?

comment Ginger Beer recipe, how do you finish up?
Normally, the rule of thumb is two weeks. But you can pull one out whenever you feel like it to check.

comment Can I leave my hydrometer in the carboy to tell when fermentation is complete?
This is the best answer, if you're concerned about volume loss, then a hydrometer is your best bet (you need a couple of drops of the beer/wort to test the Brix, don't read the gravity). Then you can also combine this with a wine thief to further reduce/simplify the amount you draw.

comment How to brew all-grain indoors
These are slow compared to the full 4.5kw+ that you get with water heating elements.

comment How often should a keg be disassembled and cleaned?
I normally do mine every five "rotations" of beer. I increase this if the keg hasn't been under pressure since in theory the positive pressure should keep the nasties out. there's no hard and fast rule, it's completely up to you!

comment Keeping beer from entering CO2 line while Carbing Keg?
you should also see the low pressure change move down as it absorbs the CO2. When you stop rocking it'll slowly go up. Also, the keg will feel colder.
