comment Beeswax for bottle waxing
This is what I used and it worked very well. amazon.com/gp/product/B000SPNHJI/… The reason I wanted to make my own bottling wax is two fold. One is color selection. I can create any color I want to match my labels or look I am going for. The second reason is that I think making it yourself embodies the whole principle of homebrewing. I don't brew beer because it is easier or cheaper, I could just the same walk to the store and buy a bottle of beer, just the same as I can go buy sealing wax.

comment Beeswax for bottle waxing
I attempted making a bottle wax already using hot glue gun glue, crayons, and paraffin wax melted together in a clean soup can. Prior to dipping the bottles, I wrapped a strip of filament tape under the cap to create an easy pull strip. This method worked pretty well. The bottles turned out looking great, easy to open, but the wax was too brittle. A friend suggested adding beeswax, and I was wondering if someone had experience with this.

revised Does temperature during bottle conditioning effect the flavour?
The title was asking a different question from what was intended.

comment Do I need a press to make wine from grapes?
Can I use a nylon grain bag instead of the paint strainer, or are the holes too big?

comment How to know how much starter to make from harvested yeast?
Do these calculations change depending on how long the yeast has been in storage? Say the yeast was harvested 3 months ago (just an example)

How do you harvest yeast and store them in a water immersion?

Wouldn't that kill the yeast too?

comment Adding water to wort to get desired volume
Would a Brita filter take it out? And how long do you let the water sit after adding the Campden tablet?
