Probably don't need the yeast, just the sugar. There should be enough cells in suspension to carbonate & scrub oxygen over a year's time.

Blending is the answer. A little bit at a time until you get a good mix.

Well done ººººº

comment What are the effects of a watery mash?
Right. I suspect you have to get up to ridiculous water to grist ratios before running into a problem. Even then, continuous stirring would probably solve that problem.

Nah, the grain settles pretty well. A good vorlauf will set up your filter.

Fullers brewery in London does sort of a batch sparge/partigyle brew. Look it up on recent episodes of the Brewing Network's Can You Brew It

comment Alternative/Non-traditional Brewing Practices
I'm pretty sure I heard Papazian mention still using bucket fermenters in one of the many interviews I've heard. That dude makes good beer, but I don't know if he's into the competition circuit.

comment Low Cost Conical Fermenter
Just pointing out a downside to the seemingly cheap price of the tanks. Ultimately, I would be happier with SS. I converted to using half-barrel kegs and a special fitting for my fermenters. They're not conical, but are stainless and work well.
