comment Bottles didn't carbonate, anything I can do?
As an aside - more and more refrigerators have their cooling coils in the bottom, not in the back, making the above warmer completely ineffective for any sort of yeast-related activity - beer or bread - which is a bummer.

comment Belgian witbeer: Which fermentation temperature in comparison to a Bavarian Hefeweizen?
Can you clarify the last two sentences - they seem to be at odds with each other. I thought that "fruity esters" was synonymous with "banana character".

comment How long does StarSan last?
pH test strips are both cheap and readily available, and plenty accurate for this use. That said, I'm not sure that I'm anal-retentive enough to test it every time, either.

comment How do I prevent off-flavors in ciders
Can you still treat champagne yeast as though it were an ale (warm, top fermenting), or is cooling required? And do you have specifics on pasteurization (time & temperature)? It's possible that I haven't used sufficient temperature (~160 degrees for 10 minutes).
