comment [WIKI] Bottle Sanitizing Techniques - Pros & Cons
San here, best method. I rinse out my bottles as I open them. Use a bottle tree. Star San really only needs a 30 sec contact time, but time everything dipped and put on the tree they are all sanitized. Never had an infection.

comment Dry hopping in the keg.
That's different then my method. In my method I pressurize the beer, and serve it at the same time as I am dry hopping. I push the hops toward the top of the keg to reduce hop/beer contact time. Once a gallon or so is drank the hops are no longer in contact with the beer. I remove the hops after the keg is finished and empty.

comment How much potassium metabisulfite/Potassium Sorbate to stop fermentation?
You have to add both to stop and prevent fermentation. K-meta kills and the K-sorbate prevent the yeast from reproducing. When added, the gravity will still fall a few points while the process occurs. There is plenty of information out there. Here is one post. fermentarium.com/content/view/165/58 Both can absolutly be added to beer. Especially in beers with high amounts of fruit or honey. Or if you have a stuck fermention and require extreme measures, ie Champagne yeast. I have both chemicals in bulk powder form. I want to know how many grams per gallon to add.
