comment Glosan and soapy taste
No problem Nice thing about BLC and other products from National Chemical is that they have MSDS right on their site, easy to get. Good luck!

comment Is RTD beer susceptible to any damage from temperature fluctuations?
Brewchez is right. Plus, extended higher temperatures can cause over-carbonation.

BTW, at my house at least, I am growing East Kent Goldings, Liberty, and Nugget.

comment Help with Hop Analysis
This will be the third year. It may be due to the age of the plants, as suggested or just the climate here in Wisconsin. Interesting points, though.

comment Help with Hop Analysis
Wanted to add as an aside, this is a great idea, just not sure it's practical. With reasonably accurate numbers, home brewers could use home grown hops to much greater effect. Right now we just guess based on the min and max alpha of the variety.

comment First Fermentation And Worried Something Is Wrong
Jeff's right. It's all good. Sometimes they are done in three days. Sometimes they are done in a week or more. Different yeast, different ingredients, different locations, all make a difference in fermentation time. Never trust the bubbles. Let it go 6-7 days and get a gravity reading.

Gotta go with brewchez's answer on this one. Sounds like an infection.

comment Benefit to smaller bottles?
Fourthed - Heh on the biggest beers, such as a Chimay Blue clone we make, we use big swing-tops, but still make a few 12oz bottles too, for when we don't want the quantity.
